Consensus over evolutionary graphs. (arXiv:1803.02564v1 [math.OC])

We establish average consensus on graphs with dynamic topologies prescribed by evolutionary games among strategic agents. Each agent possesses a private reward function and dynamically decides whether to create new links and/or whether to delete existing ones in a selfish and decentralized fashion, as indicated by a certain randomized mechanism. This model incurs a time-varying and state-dependent graph topology for which traditional consensus analysis is not applicable. We prove asymptotic average consensus almost surely and in mean square for any initial condition and graph topology. In addition, we establish exponential convergence in expectation. Our results are validated via simulation studies on random networks. 查看全文>>
