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.

Given a sequence of random (directed and weighted) graphs, we address the problem of online monitoring and detection of changes in the underlying data distribution. Our idea is to endow sequential change-point detection (CPD) techniques with a graph representation learning substrate based on the versatile Random Dot Product Graph (RDPG) model. We consider efficient, online updates of a judicious monitoring function, which quantifies the discrepancy between the streaming graph observations and the nominal RDPG.

Due to their effectiveness in capturing similarities between different entities, graphical models are widely used to represent datasets that reside on irregular and complex manifolds. Graph signal processing offers support to handle such complex datasets. In this paper, we propose a novel graph filter design method for semi-supervised data classification.

In this paper, the joint state and fault estimation problem is investigated for a class of discrete-time complex networks with measurement saturations and stochastic nonlinearities. The difference between the actual measurement and the saturated measurement is regarded as an unknown input and the system is thus re-organized as a singular system. An appropriate estimator is designed for each node which aims to estimate the system states and the loss of the actuator effectiveness simultaneously.
