A new discrete Cucker-Smale flocking model under hierarchical leadership

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • This paper studies the flocking behavior in a new discrete-time Cucker-Smale model under hierarchical leadership. The features of this model are that each individual has its own intrinsic nonlinear dynamics and the interaction between individuals follows a hierarchical leadership structure. Based on a specific matrix norm, we prove that the conditional flocking indeed occurs. Numerical experiments are given to confirm the theoretical results.
