From local averaging to emergent global behaviors : The fundamental role of network interconnections

Como, Giacomo LU and Fagnani, Fabio (2016) In Systems & Control Letters 96. p.70-76
Abstract

Distributed averaging is one of the simplest and most widely studied network dynamics. Its applications range from cooperative inference in sensor networks, to robot formation, to opinion dynamics. A number of fundamental results and examples scattered through the literature are gathered here and some original approaches and generalizations are presented, emphasizing the deep interplay between the network interconnection structure and the emergent global behavior.
