This work explores the challenging problems of nonlinear dynamics, nonaffine structures, heterogeneous properties, and deception attack together and proposes a novel distributed model-free adaptive predictive control (DMFAPC) for multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) multi-agent systems (MASs). A dynamic linearization method is introduced to address the nonlinear heterogeneous dynamics which is transformed as the unknown parameters in the obtained linear data model.

Representation learning considering high-order relationships in data has recently shown to be advantageous in many applications. The construction of a meaningful hypergraph plays a crucial role in the success of hypergraph-based representation learning methods, which is particularly useful in hypergraph neural networks and hypergraph signal processing.

The Random Dot Product Graph (RDPG) is a generative model for relational data, where nodes are represented via latent vectors in low-dimensional Euclidean space. RDPGs crucially postulate that edge formation probabilities are given by the dot product of the corresponding latent positions. Accordingly, the embedding task of estimating these vectors from an observed graph is typically posed as a low-rank matrix factorization problem.

This paper examines the problem of bipartite consensus for Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy multi-agent systems subject to uncertainties. The principal intention of this work is to develop a non-fragile controller through which the considered multi-agent system can achieve bipartite consensus. An undirected signed graph is considered to describe the cooperative and competitive interaction among neighboring agents.

This paper focuses on the constrained optimization problem where the objective function is composed of smooth (possibly nonconvex) and nonsmooth parts. The proposed algorithm integrates the successive convex approximation (SCA) technique with the gradient tracking mechanism that aims at achieving a linear convergence rate and employing the momentum term to regulate update directions in each time instant. 

In this paper, we investigate the performance of a wide area network (WAN) with three hops over a mixed radio frequency (RF), reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) assisted RF and Free space optics (FSO) channel. Here RIS and decode-and-forward (DF) relays are used to improve the coverage and system performance. For general applicability, the RF and FSO links are modelled with Saleh-Valenzuela (S-V) and Gamma-Gamma distribution, respectively.

The smoothness of graph signals has found desirable real applications for processing irregular (graph-based) signals. When the latent sources of the mixtures provided to us as observations are smooth graph signals, it is more efficient to use graph signal smoothness terms along with the classic independence criteria in Blind Source Separation (BSS) approaches. In the case of underlying graphs being known, Graph Signal Processing (GSP) provides valuable tools; however, in many real applications, these graphs can not be well-defined a priori and need to be learned from data. 

We introduce graph wedgelets - a tool for data compression on graphs based on the representation of signals by piecewise constant functions on adaptively generated binary graph partitionings. The adaptivity of the partitionings, a key ingredient to obtain sparse representations of a graph signal, is realized in terms of recursive wedge splits adapted to the signal. For this, we transfer adaptive partitioning and compression techniques known for 2D images to general graph structures and develop discrete variants of continuous wedgelets and binary space partitionings.

In many specific scenarios, accurateand practical cooperative learning is a commonly encountered challenge in multi-agent systems. Thus, the current investigation focuses on cooperative learning algorithms for multi-agent systems and underpins an alternate data-based neural network reinforcement learning framework. To achieve the data-based learning optimization, the proposed cooperative learning framework, which comprises two layers, introduces a virtual learning objective.

Decentralized stochastic gradient descent (SGD) is a driving engine for decentralized federated learning (DFL). The performance of decentralized SGD is jointly influenced by inter-node communications and local updates. In this paper, we propose a general DFL framework, which implements both multiple local updates and multiple inter-node communications periodically, to strike a balance between communication efficiency and model consensus.
