This paper investigates the task assignment problem for multiple dispersed robots constrained by limited communication range. The robots are initially randomly distributed and need to visit several target locations while minimizing the total travel time. A centralized rendezvous-based algorithm is proposed, under which all the robots first move towards a rendezvous position until communication paths are established between every pair of robots either directly or through intermediate peers, and then one robot is chosen as the leader to make a centralized task assignment for the other robots.

In this paper, we consider the cooperative robust output regulation problem for a class of heterogeneous linear uncertain minimum-phase multi-agent systems by an output-based event-triggered distributed control law. First, we convert the cooperative robust output regulation into the cooperative robust stabilization problem of a well defined augmented system via the distributed internal model principle. Second, we design an output-based event-triggered distributed control law to stabilize the augmented system, which leads to the solvability of the cooperative robust output regulation problem of the original plant.

The leader-following consensus problem for multiple Euler-Lagrange systems was studied recently by the adaptive distributed observer approach under the assumptions that the leader system is neurally stable and the communication network is jointly connected and undirected. In this paper, we will study the same problem without assuming that the leader system is neutrally stable, and the communication network is undirected. The effectiveness of this new result will be illustrated by an example. Read More

This paper studies the leader-following consensus problem for a class of nonlinear multi-agent systems with linearly parameterized uncertainty subject to jointly connected switching networks. To deal with the jointly connected switching networks, a distributed adaptive control law utilizing certainty equivalence principle and the adaptive distributed observer is developed. Global convergence of the closed-loop system is established. Read More

In this paper, we study the cooperative output regulation problem for the discrete linear time-delay multi-agent systems by distributed observer approach. In contrast with the same problem for continuous-time linear time-delay multi-agent systems, the problem has two new features. First, in the presence of time-delay, the regulator equations for discrete-time linear systems are different from those for continuous-time linear systems. Read More

Nonperturbative calculation of QED processes participated by a strong electromagnetic field, especially provided by strong laser facilities at present and in the near future, generally resorts to the Furry picture with the usage of analytical solutions of the particle dynamical equation, such as the Klein-Gordon equation and Dirac equation. However only for limited field configurations such as a plane-wave field could the equations be solved analytically. Studies have shown significant interests in QED processes in a strong field composed of two counter-propagating laser waves, but the exact solutions in such a field is out of reach. Read More

In this paper, we study the cooperative robust output regulation problem for linear uncertain multi-agent systems with both communication delay and input delay by the distributed internal model approach. The problem includes the leader-following consensus problem of linear multi-agent systems with time-delay as a special case. We first generalize the internal model design method to systems with both communication delay and input delay. Read More

This paper studies the cooperative global robust stabilization problem for a class of nonlinear multi-agent systems. The problem is motivated from the study of the cooperative global robust output regulation problem for the class of nonlinear multi-agent systems in normal form with unity relative degree which was studied recently under the conditions that the switching network is undirected and some nonlinear functions satisfy certain growth condition. We first solve the stabilization problem by using the multiple Lyapunov functions approach and the average dwell time method. Read More

The cooperative output regulation problem of linear multi-agent systems was formulated and studied by the distributed observer approach in [20, 21]. Since then, several variants and extensions have been proposed, and the technique of the distributed observer has also been applied to such problems as formation, rendezvous, flocking, etc. In this chapter, we will first present a more general formulation of the cooperative output regulation problem for linear multi-agent systems that includes some existing versions of the cooperative output regulation problem as special cases.

We introduce Hermite polynomial excitation squeezed vacuum (SV) H_{n}(O)S(r)|0> with O=u a+v a^{{+}}. We investigate analytically the nonclassical properties according to Mandel's Q parameter, second correlation function, squeezing effect and the negativity of Wigner function (WF). It is found that all these nonclassicalities can be enhanced by H_{n}(O)operation and adjustable parameters u and v. Read More

A new entangled quantum state is introduced by applying local coherent superposition (ra^+ +ta) of photon subtraction and addition to each mode of even entangled coherent state (EECS) and the properties of entanglement are investigated. It is found that the Shchukin-Vogel inseparability, the degree of entanglement and the average fidelity of quantum teleportation of the EECS can be improved due to the coherent superposition operation. The effects of improvement by coherent superposition operation are better than those by single (a^+) and two-photon (a^+ b^+) addition operations under a small region of amplitude. Read More

The appearance of unconventional vacuum properties in intense fields has long been an active field of research. In this paper the vacuum polarization effect is investigated via a pump probe scheme of a probe light propagating in the vacuum excited by two counter-propagating laser beams. The modified light cone condition of the probe light is derived analytically for the situation that it passes through the electric/magnetic antinode plane of the pump field. Read More

By using the nonuniform discrete Fourier transform on the center positions of the symmetric intensity distribution of the output beam, we recover the vibration information of two mirrors, which is lost in the analysis of Danan \emph{et al.} in the work [Phys. Rev. Read More

The magnificent development of strong X-ray lasers motivates the advancement of pair production process studies into higher laser frequency region. In this paper, a resonant electron-positron pair production process with the absorption of two X-ray photons is considered in the impact of an energetic electron at the overlap region of two colliding X-ray laser beams. Laser-dressed QED method is justified to tackle the complexity of the corresponding multiple Feynman diagrams calculation. Read More

The complementarity of single-photon's particle-like and wave-like behaviors can be described by the inequality $D^2+V^2 \leq 1$, with $D$ being the path distinguishability and $V$ being the fringe visibility. In this paper, we generalize this duality relation to multi-photon case, where two new concepts, higher order distinguishability and higher order fringe visibility, are introduced to quantify the higher order particle-like and wave-like behaviors of multi-photons.

A group of symmetric operators are introduced to carry out the separability criterion for bipartite and multipartite quantum states. Every symmetric operator, represented by a symmetric matrix with only two nonzero elements, and their arbitrary linear combinations are found to be entanglement witnesses. By using these symmetric operators, Wootters' separability criterion for two-qubit states can be generalized to bipartite and multipartite systems in arbitrary dimensions. Read More

We present a scheme of quantum information transmission, which transmits the quantum information contained in a single qubit via the quantum correlation shared by two parties (a two-qubit channel), whose quantum discord is non-zero. We demonstrate that the quantum correlation, which may have no entanglement, is sufficient to transmit the information of a quantum state. When the correlation matrix of the two-qubit channel is of full rank (rank three), the information of the qubit in either a mixed state or a pure state can be transmitted. Read More

We propose a new criterion to judge zero quantum discord for arbitrary bipartite states. A bipartite quantum state has zero quantum discord if and only if all blocks of its density matrix are normal matrices and commute with each other. Given a bipartite state with zero quantum discord, how to find out the set of local projectors, which do not disturb the whole state after being imposed on one subsystem, is also presented.

In terms of operator, the two complementary quantities, the predictability and visibility, are reinvestigated in a two-way interferometer. One Hermitian operator and one non-Hermitian operator (composed of two Hermitian operators) are introduced for the predictability and visibility, respectively. The predictability and visibility can not be measured exactly simultaneously, due to the non-commutation between the two operators. Read More

We simulate the bulge formation in very late-type dwarf galaxies from circumnuclear super star clusters (SSCs) moving in a responding cuspy dark matter halo (DMH). The simulations show that (1) the response of DMH to sinking of SSCs is detectable only in the region interior to about 200 pc. The mean logarithmic slope of the responding DM density profile over that area displays two different phases: the very early descent followed by ascent till approaching to 1. Read More

We propose a new cryptosystem by combing the Lissajous map, which is the asymptotic model of deterministic randomness, with the one-way coupled map lattice (OCML) system. The key space, the encryption efficiency, and the security are investigated. We find that the parameter sensitivity can reach the computational precision when the system size is only three, all the lattice outputs can be treated as key stream parallelly, and the system is resistible against various attacks including the differential-like chosen cipher attack.

The combinative applications of one-way coupled map lattice (OCML) and some simple algebraic operations have demonstrated to be able to construct the best known chaotic cryptosystem with high practical security, fast encryption speed, and excellent robustness against channel noise. In this paper, we propose a differential-like chosen cipher attack to break the prototypical system cooperating with INT and MOD operations. This cryptographic method exploits the weakness that the high-dimensional cryptosystem degenerates to be one-dimensional under constant driving, therefore, is no more sensitive to the slight perturbation on the driving after convergence.

The dynamical evolution of super star clusters has been investigated in dark matter halos depicted with a cuspy- or soft-core density profile. The simulations show that (1) exponential bulges with central cusps form in both cases;(2) distinctive bulge formation rates are derived for cuspy- and soft-core profile; (3) masses of bulges and nuclear clusters are more heavier in case of cuspy-core profile; (4) massive, nuclear star clusters possibly form with no discernible bulges at different ages in cuspy- or soft-core cases.

We find that a non-axisymmetric bow shock model, with an appropriate choice of parameters, could fit the line splitting velocity field of the cone-like H$\alpha$ nebula in NGC 4945 better than a canonical cone model. Meanwhile, the bow shock model could also reproduce the morphology of the H$\alpha$ nebula. The bow shock results from the interaction of the galactic superwinds with a giant HII region. Read More
