Consensus algorithms are distributed computations of means in changing communi-
cation environments. They find applications in several engineering problems ranging
from coordinated control design to computational algorithms in statistics and machine
In this talk we consider consensus algorithms defined on compact homogeneous man-
ifolds. We motivate the problem with several applications and we propose new conver-
gent algorithms both in continuous-time and discrete-time.
