Title: Flocking Formation under Communication Failures for a Class of Cucker-Smale Systems

Abstract: This presentation is about sufficient conditions for the emergence of flocking in a class of strongly cooperative non-linear multi-agent systems subject to communication failures. Our approach is based on a combination of Lyapunov analysis along with the formulation of a novel persistence condition for cooperative systems. The latter can be interpreted as a lower bound on the algebraic connectivity of the time-average of the interaction graph generated by the communication weights and provides quantitative convergence rates towards flocking.
