Vicsek s simulations demonstrated that these nearest neighbor rules can cause all agents to eventually move in the same direction despite 1. the absence of a leader and/or centralized coordination 2. the fact that each agent s set of neighbors changes with time.

Why is this true?
17 Induced Norms and SemiNorms For M 2 R n n and p > 0, let M p denote the induced matrix p norm on R n n. We will be interested primarily in the cases p = 1, 2, 1 : For any such p, define 1. Nonnegative: M p 0 2. Homogeneous: rm p = r M p 3. Triangle inequality: M 1 + M 2 p M 1 p + M 2 p verify! These three properties mean that p is a seminorm {If M p = 0 were to imply M = 0, then p would be a norm.} M p = 0 ; M = 0
18 Additional Properties of 1. M p 1 if M p 1 Because M p M p M is semi  contractive in the p seminorm if M p < 1 2. Submultiplicative: Suppose M is a subset of R n n such that M1 = 1 for all M 2 M. Then Proof: Let c 0,c 1 and c 2 denote values of c which minimize M 2 M 11c p, M 11c p, and M 21c p respectively. 1 = M 2 1
19 Suppose M is a subset of R n n such that M1 = 1 for all M 2 M. Let p be fixed and let C be a compact set of semi  contractive matrices in M. Let Then for each infinite sequence of matrices M 1, M 2,... in C, the matrix product converges as i! 1 as fast as i converges to zero, to a rank one matrix of the form 1c. Proof: See board We want to use this fact to prove that: If S is a compact set of n n stochastic matrices whose members each have at least one positive column, then for each sequence of matrices S 1, S 2, from S, and this limit is approached exponentially fast. To do this, it is enough to show that: stochastic matrix S is semicontractive in the seminorm 1 if S has a positive column.
20 Any stochastic matrix S can be written as S = 1c + T where c is the largest row vector for which S  1c is nonnegative and T = S 1c so T1 = S1 1c1 = (1  c1)1 all row sums of T = (1  c1) 0 because T 0 Moreover c 0 if and only if S has a positive column. verify! Therefore (1 c1) < 1 if and only if S has a positive column jsj 1 = m in d jjs 1d 0 jj 1 jjs 1cjj 1 = jjt jj 1 = ( 1 c1) stochastic matrix S is semicontractive in the seminorm 1 if S has a positive column.
21 Transitioning from Matrices to Graphs For a nonnegative matrix M n n, (M) is that graph whose adjacency matrix is the transpose of the matrix which results when each nonzero entries in M is replaced by a 1. In other words, for a nonnegative matrix M, (M) is that graph which has an arc (i, j) from i to j whenever m j,i 0.
22 Transitioning from Matrices to Graphs For a nonnegative matrix M n n, (M) is that graph whose adjacency matrix is the transpose of the matrix which results when each nonzero entries in M is replaced by a 1. ( F N ) = ( A 0 N ) = N A graph is strongly rooted if at least one vertex is adjacent to every vertex in the graph strongly rooted graph Motivation for strongly rooted: For any nonnegative matrix M, (M) has an arc (i, j) whenever m j,i 0. (M) is strongly rooted, M has a positive column
23 Transitioning from Matrices to Graphs If S is a compact set of n n stochastic matrices whose members each have at least one positive column, then for each sequence of matrices S 1, S 2, from S, and this limit is approached exponentially fast. If S is a compact set of n n stochastic matrices whose members each have a strongly rooted graph, then for each sequence of matrices S 1, S 2, from S, and this limit is approached exponentially fast.
24 Transitioning from Matrices to Graphs When does... T T q T 2 T 1 If then Thus establishing convergence to 1c of an infinite product of stochastic matrices boils down to determining when the graph of a product of stochastic matrices is strongly rooted.
25 Transitioning from Matrices to Graphs As before G = set of all directed graphs with vertex set {1,2,...,n}. By the composition of graph G 2 2 G with graph G 1 2 G, written G 2 ± G 1, is that directed graph in G which has an arc (i, j) from i to j whenever there is an integer k such that (i, k) is an arc in G 1 and (k, j) is an arc in G 2. What motivates this definition? If A and B are nonnegative n n matrices and C = BA, then Thus c ji 0 if and only if for some k, b jk 0 and a ki 0. Therefore (i, j) is an arc in (C) if and only if for some k, (i, k) is an arc in (A) and (k, j) is an arc in (B). (BA) = (B) ± (A)
26 Transitioning from Matrices to Graphs Graph composition is defined so that for any two n n stochastic matrices S 1 and S 2 (S 2 S 1 ) = (S 2 ) ± (S 1 ) Thus deciding when a finite product of stochastic matrices has a strongly rooted graph is the same problem as deciding when a finite composition of graphs is strongly rooted. So... When is the composition of a finite number of graphs strongly rooted?
27 A rooted graph is any graph in G which has has at least one vertex v which, for each vertex i 2 V there is a directed path from v to i. 3 roots When is the composition of a finite number of graphs strongly rooted? rooted graph Every composition of (n 1) 2 or more selfarced, rooted graphs in G is strongly rooted. Proof: See notes. The set of selfarced, rooted graphs in G is the largest set of set of selfarced graphs in G for which every sufficiently long composition is strongly rooted. Proof: See notes.
28 Every composition of (n 1) 2 or more selfarced, rooted graphs in G is strongly rooted.
29 Every composition of (n 1) 2 or more selfarced, rooted graphs in G is strongly rooted. Define A (G ) = set of arcs in G For given graphs G 1, G 2 2 G, G 2 ± G 1, is that graph in G for which (i, j) 2 A (G 2 ± G 1 ) whenever there is an integer k such that (i, k) 2 A (G 1 ) and (k, j) 2 A (G 2 ). If G 1 has a selfarc at i, then (i, i) 2 A (G 1 ). If G 1 has a selfarc at i and (i, j) 2 A (G 2 ) for some j, then (i, j) 2 A (G 2 ± G 1 ) If G 2 has a selfarc at j, then (j, j) 2 A (G 2 ). If G 2 has a selfarc at j and (i, j) 2 A (G 1 ) for some i, then (i, j) 2 A (G 2 ± G 1 ) If G 1 and G 2 both have selfarcs at all vertices, then A (G 2 )[A(G 1 ) ½ A (G 2 ±G 1 ). In general for A (G 2 )[A(G 1 ) A (G 2 ±G 1 ) even if both graphs are selfarced. However for selfarced graphs, if there is a directed path between i and j in G 2 ±G 1 then there is a directed bath between i and j in G 2 [ G 1
30 If S is a compact set of n n stochastic matrices whose members each have a strongly rooted graph, then for each sequence of matrices S 1, S 2, from S, and this limit is approached exponentially fast.... rooted strongly rooted strongly rooted strongly rooted If S is a compact set of n n stochastic matrices whose members each have a selfarced, rooted graph, then for each sequence of matrices S 1, S 2, from S, and this limit is approached exponentially fast. We can generalize further still...
31 Repeatedly Jointly Rooted Sequences An finite sequence of graphs G 1, G 2,..., G p in G is jointly rooted if the composed graph G p ± G p1 ± ± G 1 is rooted. An infinite sequence of graphs G 1, G 2,... in G is repeatedly jointly rooted if there is a finite positive integer m for which each of the sequences G m(k 1)+1,... G k 1, k 1, is jointly rooted.... repeatedly jointly rooted rooted rooted rooted If S is a compact set of n n stochastic matrices whose members each have a selfarced, rooted graph, then for each sequence of matrices S 1, S 2, from S, and this limit is approached exponentially fast.
32 Suppose S is a compact set of n n stochastic matrices whose members each have a selfarced graph. Suppose that S 1, S 2,... is an infinite sequence of matrices from S whose corresponding sequence of graphs (S 1 ), (S 2 ),... is repeatedly jointly rooted by subsequences of length m. Suppose in addition that the set of all products of m matrices from S with rooted graphs, written C(m), is closed. Then and this limit is approached exponentially fast. Compactness of S does not in general imply compactness of C(m). Construct an example for 2 2 matrices with m = 2. Exception: If S is finite and thus compact {as in flocking applications} so is C(m) Exception: If S is the set of stochastic matrices modeling the convex combo flocking rule, then S and C(m) are both compact. verify this! Flocking Theorem: For each trajectory of the Vicsek flocking system µ(t +1) = F N(t) µ(t) along which the sequence of neighbor graphs N(0), N(1),... is repeatedly jointly rooted, there is a constant steady state heading µ ss which µ(t) approaches exponentially fast, as t! 1.
33 Collectively Rooted Sequences The flocking theorem relies on the notion of jointly rooted sequences: An finite sequence of graphs G 1, G 2,..., G p in G is jointly rooted if the composed graph G p ± G p1 ± ± G 1 is rooted. By the union of G 1, G 2 2 G is meant that graph G 1 [ G 2 in G with arc set A (G 1 ) [ A (G 2 ). An finite sequence of graphs G 1, G 2,..., G p in G is collectively rooted if the union graph G p [ G p1 [ [ G 1 is rooted. In general, for selfarced graphs A ( G p [ G p1 [ [ G 1 ) is a strictly proper subset of A (G p ± G p1 ± ± G 1 ) However, for each arc (i, j) 2 A (G p ± G p1 ± ± G 1 ) there must be a directed path between (i, j) in G p [ G p1 [ [ G 1 Therefore for selfarced graphs, the sequence G 1, G 2,..., G p in G is jointly rooted if and only if it is collectively rooted.
34 Leader Following Suppose that one of the agents in the group, namely agent k, ignores Vicsek s update rule and decides instead to move with some arbitrary but fixed heading θ 0. Suppose that the remaining agents are unaware of this nonconformist s decision and continue to follow Vicsek s rule just as before. Note that under these conditions, agent k must have no neighbors to follow which means that vertex k of any neighbor graph N for the group cannot have any incident arcs. Because of this, the only possible way such a graph N could be rooted or strongly rooted would be if vertex k were the root of N and the only root of N. All of the preceding results are applicable to this case without change. Thus for example, all agents in the group will eventually move in the same direction as agent k if the sequence of neighbor graphs is repeatedly jointly rooted. However more can be said in this special case
35 Leader Following For example, suppose that the neighbor graphs N(1), N(2),... are all rooted. Then each N(t) must be rooted at k. It was noted before that the composition of any (n 1) 2 selfarced rooted graphs in G must be strongly rooted. However in the special case of selfarced, rooted graphs in G which all have a root at the same vertex v, it takes the composition of only (n 1) of them to produce a strongly rooted graph. See notes for a proof Because of this, one would expect faster convergence than in the leaderless case, all other things being equal.

39 Symmetric Neighbor Relations The original version of the flocking problem considered the case when all neighbor relations were symmetric that is if agent i is a neighbor of agent j then agent j is a neighbor of agent i. Mathematically, a symmetric neighbor relation means that i 2 N j, j 2 N i The corresponding neighbor graph N would thus be symmetric as well. A directed graph G 2 G is symmetric if (i, j) 2 A (G), (j, i) 2 A (G ) A rooted symmetric graph is the same thing as a strongly connected symmetric graph A graph G 2 G is strongly connected if there is a directed path between any two distinct vertices i and j.
40 Another Way to Write the Vicsek Flocking System L(t) is a symmetric matrix if N(t) is symmetric.
41 Simplified Rule for Symmetric Neighbor Relations Simplified flocking matrix: 1. Symmetric 2. Nonnegative if g > max d i 3. F s 1 = 1 L1 = D1 A1 = 0 F s is stochastic if g > max d i
42 Comparing Flocking Matrices Let N be a given selfarcd directed, symmetric, neighbor graph. A = A 0 (F s ) = (F) = N Therefore all convergence results hold without change for the simplified flocking rule assuming symmetric neighbor relations. Can extend the symmetric case to continuous time.
43 Convergence Rates First we will consider this matter in relation to the seminorm 1
44 Let C be a compact set of n n stochastic matrices which are semi  contractive in the infinity norm. Then for each infinite sequence of matrices S 1 S 2,... in C, the matrix product converges as i! 1 to a rank one matrix as fast as converges to zero. So what we d like is a uniform upper bound on S 1 over C. = a convergence rate bound Any stochastic matrix S can be written as S = 1c + T where c is the largest row vector for which S  1c is nonnegative and T = S 1c jsj 1 = m in d jjs 1d 0 jj 1 jjs 1cjj 1 = jjt jj 1 = ( 1 c1) Note that the ith entry c i in c must be the smallest entry in the ith column of S. Since (1 c1) 1  c i for any i, jsj 1 ( 1 c i ) 8i
45 Convergence Rate Bound for Flocking Matrices with Strongly Rooted Graphs If c i is the smallest element in the ith column of S, then S 1 1 c i Suppose that F is a flocking matrix whose graph is strongly rooted at vertex k Then (F) must have an arc from vertex k to each other vertex in the graph which means that the kth row of adjacency matrix A of (F) must be [ ] Since F = D 1 A 0 where D = diagonal {n 1,n 2,..., n n }, the kth column of F must be The smallest entry in this column is bounded below by Therefore for any flocking matrix F with a strongly rooted graph = a convergence rate bound
46 An Explicit Formula for the Infinity SemiNorm For any nonnegative n n matrix M, See notes of a proof of this fact. If M is a stochastic matrix, the quantity on the right is known as the coefficient of ergodicity. For any real numbers x and y So for a stochastic matrix S
47 * 1. S 1 1 Because S 1 S 1 = 1 2. S 1 = 0 if and only if all rows are equal = iff S = 1c For fixed i and j, the kth term in the sum in will be positive iff s ik > 0 and s jk > 0 * Therefore the sum in * will be positive iff s ik > 0 and s jk > 0 for at least one value of k Therefore S 1 < 1 iff for each distinct i and j, s ik > 0 and s jk > 0 for at least one value of k. A stochastic matrix with this property is called a scrambling matrix
48 Summary A stochastic matrix S is a scrambling matrix for each distinct i and j, s ik > 0 and s jk > 0 for at least one value of k. Equivalently, a stochastic matrix is a scrambling matrix if no two rows are orthogonal. A stochastic matrix is a semicontraction in the infinity norm iff it is a scrambling matrix. An explicit formula for the infinity seminorm of any stochastic matrix S is
49 The Graph of a Scrambling Matrix. A stochastic matrix S is a scrambling matrix for each distinct i and j, s ik > 0 and s jk > 0 for at least one value of k. A graph G 2 G is neighbor shared if each two distinct vertices i and j have a common neighbor k A stochastic matrix S is a scrambling matrix if and only if its graph is neighbor shared. In a strongly rooted graph there must be a root which is the neighbor of each vertex in the graph. So... Every strongly rooted graph is neighbor shared. The converse is clearly false.
50 NeighborShared Directed Graph A neighbor shared graph is a directed graph in which each pair of distinct vertices share a common neighbor and 2 share 2 1 and 3 share 2 1 and 4 share 4 2 and 3 share 2 2 and 4 share 4 3 and 4 share 1
51 Suppose G 2 G is neighbor shared. Then any pair of vertices (i, j) must be reachable from a {common neighbor} vertex k. Suppose for some integer p 2 {2, 3,..., n 1}, each subset of p vertices is reachable from a single vertex. Let {v 1, v 2,..., v p } be any any such set and let v be a vertex from which all of the v i can be reached. Let w be any vertex not in the set {v 1, v 2,..., v p }. Since G is neighbor shared, w and v can be reached from a common vertex y Therefore every vertex in the set {v 1, v 2,..., v p, w} can be reached from y. So every subset of p + 1 vertices in the graph is reachable from a single vertex. So by induction all n vertices are reachable from a single vertex. Every neighborshared graph in G is rooted. Converse is false. Verify by constructing an example. Strongly rooted graphs ½ neighbor shared graphs ½ rooted graphs
52 Compositions of rooted and neighbor shared graphs The composition on any n 1 or more selfarced, rooted graphs in G is neighbor shared. Proof: See notes. We will use this fact a little later to get a convergence rate bound for products of flocking matrices whose sequence of graphs is repeatedly jointly rooted. The composition on any n 1 or more neighborshared graphs in G is strongly rooted. Let s outline a proof of this: Strongly rooted graphs ½ neighbor shared graphs ½ rooted graphs
53 The composition on any n 1 or more neighborshared graphs in G is strongly rooted. A graph G 2 G is k neighbor shared if each set of k distinct vertices in G share a common neighbor. A 2 neighbor shared graph is thus a neighbor shared graph and an n neighbor shared graph is obviously strongly rooted. Suppose G is neighbor shared and H is k neighbor shared for some k < n Let {v 1, v 2,..., v k+1 } be distinct vertices. Since H is k neighbor shared, in H {v 1, v 2,..., v k } share a common neighbor p and {v 2, v 3,..., v k +1 } share a common neighbor q Since G is neighbor shared, in G p and q share a common neighbor w. In H ±G, vertices v 1, v 2,..., v k must have w for a neighbor as must vertices v 2, v 3,..., v k +1 Therefore in H ±G, vertices v 1, v 2,..., v k+1 must have w for a neighbor. Therefore H ±G must be k + 1 neighbor shared. Complete the proof using induction.
54 Convergence rate bounds for products of scrambling matrices Let C be a compact set of n n stochastic matrices which are semi  contractive in the infinity norm. Then for each infinite sequence of matrices S 1 S 2,... in C, the matrix product converges as i! 1 to a rank one matrix as fast as converges to zero. Scrambling matrices are semicontractive in the infinity norm. Let C be a compact set of n n scrambling matrices. Then for each infinite sequence of matrices S 1 S 2,... in C, the matrix product converges as i! 1 to a rank one matrix as fast as converges to zero. What can be said about convergence rate for scrambling matrices which are also flocking matrices?
55 Worst Case F 1 for F = D 1 A 0 = Scrambling (F) = N = neighbor shared A = [a ij ] a ij = 1 a ij = 0 if i is a neighbor of j otherwise D = diagonal {d 1, d 2,, d n } n n d i = indegree of vertex i Since all d i n, all nonzero f ij satisfy
56 Worst Case F 1 for F = D 1 A 0 = Scrambling (F) = N = neighbor shared A = [a ij ] a ij = 1 a ij = 0 if i is a neighbor of j otherwise D = diagonal {d 1, d 2,, d n } n n d i = indegree of vertex i Since all d i n, all nonzero f ij satisfy Fix distinct i and j and let k be a shared neighbor. Then f ik 0 f jk.
57 Worst Case F 1 for F = D 1 A 0 = Scrambling (F) = N = neighbor shared n 3 Vertex 1 has only itself as a neighbor Vertex 2 has every vertex as a neighbor For i > 2, vertex i has only itself and vertex 1 as neighbors How tight is this bound?
58 Summary Flocking Matrices with NeighborShared Graphs Every infinite product of n n flocking matrices with neighborshared graphs converges to a rankone matrix product 1c at a rate no slower than There exist infinite product of n n flocking matrices with neighborshared graphs which actually converge to a rankone matrix product 1c at this rate.
59 Convergence rates for products of stochastic matrices with rooted graphs The composition on any n 1 or more selfarced, rooted graphs in G is neighbor shared. Let C be a compact set of n n scrambling matrices. Then for each infinite sequence of matrices S 1 S 2,... in C, the matrix product converges as i! 1 to a rank one matrix as fast as converges to zero. Let S be a compact set of n n rooted matrices and write C for the compact set of all products of n 1 matrices from S. Then for each infinite sequence of matrices S 1 S 2,... in S, the matrix product converges as i! 1 to a rank one matrix as fast as converges to zero What can be said about the convergence rate for the product of an infinite sequence of flocking matrices whose sequence of graphs is repeatedly jointly rooted?
60 We need a few ideas For any nonzero matrix M 0, define Á(M) = smallest nonzero element of M. Note that M can be written as where For S 1 and S 2 n n stochastic matrices By induction
61 Recall that Suppose S is scrambling Claim that Since S is scrambling, for any distinct i and j there must be a k such that
62 If S is scrambling S Á(S) The composition on any n 1 or more selfarced, rooted graphs in G is neighbor shared. F = set of all n n flocking matrices F(p) = { F p F p1 F 1 : F i 2 F, { (F 1 ), (F 2 ),..., (F p ) } is jointly rooted } Each matrix in F (p) is rooted F k (p) = set of all products of k matrices from F(p) Each matrix in F k (p) is scrambling if k n  1 For any F 2 F, If S 2 F k (p), then S is the product of kp flocking matrices so If k = n 1, then S is scrambling and Therefore a convergence rate bound for the infinite product of flocking matrices whose sequence of graphs is repeatedly jointly rooted is
