Abstract : "The paper is devoted to the couple-group L2 -L∞ consensus problem of nonlinear multi-agent systems
affected by external disturbances. The interaction topologies among agents obey a continuous-time Markovian
process with unknown transition probabilities. By a system transformation, the problem of couple-group L2 -L∞
consensus is converted into a L2-L∞ control issue. Then, by Lyapunov stability theory and graph theory, sufficient
conditions for the couple-group L2-L∞ consensus are obtained. The control gains can be acquired via the solutions
of a group of linear matrix inequalities. Moreover, the present method is extended to the multi-group L2 -L∞
consensus. Finally, an example is provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the results."
