Abstract : Containment control problems for second-order multi-agent systems with fixed communication timedelays under heterogeneous networks topologies are investigated. Based on Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional method and the linear matrix inequality (LMI) method, sufficient conditions on the communication digraph, the feedback gains, and the allowed upper bound of the time-delays to ensure containment control of the multi-agent systems using the different containment control algorithms are given. Finally, numerical simulations are presented to demonstrate theoretical results.
