Abstract:
In this talk we provide a unified view of distributed coordination and consensus algorithms
which have appeared in various disciplines such as distributed computing, statistical
physics, computer graphics, robotics, and control theory over the past decade. These
algorithms have been proposed as a mechanism for demonstrating emergence of a
global collective behavior (such as social aggregation in different species, including
schooling, flocking and synchronization) using purely local interactions. Next, we
extend our results from graphs to simplicial complexes (objects of study in algebraic
topology) to verify coverage in mobile sensor networks in a purely decentralized fashion
and without location information. These simplicial complexes are combinatorial objects
that generalize the proximity graphs formed from binary relations between agents to,
