2016 - IEEE Fellow For contributions to distributed coordination and control of multi-agent systems

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Control theory
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Mathematical analysis

Wei Ren spends much of his time researching Control theory, Multi-agent system, Network topology, Consensus and Distributed computing. His Control theory research integrates issues from Convergence, Path and Convex hull. Wei Ren has researched Multi-agent system in several fields, including Stability, Eigenvalues and eigenvectors, Mathematical optimization and Existential quantification.

The concepts of his Network topology study are interwoven with issues in Algorithm, Vehicle dynamics and Spanning tree. His work deals with themes such as Distributed algorithm and Topology, which intersect with Consensus. His Distributed computing research incorporates themes from Directed spanning tree, Wireless sensor network, Control, Control theory and Range.

His most cited work include:

  • Consensus seeking in multiagent systems under dynamically changing interaction topologies (4685 citations)
  • Information consensus in multivehicle cooperative control (2351 citations)
  • Distributed Consensus in Multi-vehicle Cooperative Control (1512 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Control theory, Multi-agent system, Mathematical optimization, Network topology and Consensus. His study in Control theory is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Tracking and Bounded function. His Multi-agent system research includes elements of Graph, Stability, Laplacian matrix, Graph theory and Algorithm.

His Mathematical optimization study also includes fields such as

  • Directed graph which intersects with area such as Control,
  • Convergence which connect with Algorithm design. Wei Ren studied Network topology and Vehicle dynamics that intersect with Control system. Control engineering is closely connected to Distributed computing in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Consensus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Control theory (47.59%)
  • Multi-agent system (27.81%)
  • Mathematical optimization (25.13%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Control theory (47.59%)
  • Multi-agent system (27.81%)
  • Mathematical optimization (25.13%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Control theory, Multi-agent system, Mathematical optimization, Bounded function and Lyapunov function. Wei Ren interconnects State and Stability conditions in the investigation of issues within Control theory. Wei Ren studies Multi-agent system, namely Consensus.

The various areas that Wei Ren examines in his Mathematical optimization study include Scheme, Convergence, Convex function and Strongly connected component. His Bounded function study combines topics in areas such as Convex hull, Containment, Network topology, Interval and Algorithm. His work in Network topology addresses issues such as Dynamical systems theory, which are connected to fields such as Linear system.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Designing Distributed Specified-Time Consensus Protocols for Linear Multiagent Systems Over Directed Graphs (79 citations)
  • Appointed-time consensus: Accurate and practical designs (75 citations)
  • Distributed Consensus of Second-Order Multiagent Systems With Nonconvex Velocity and Control Input Constraints (59 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Control theory
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Algorithm

Wei Ren mainly investigates Control theory, Multi-agent system, Bounded function, Mathematical optimization and Network topology. His work on Lyapunov function as part of general Control theory study is frequently connected to Numerical stability, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His work on Consensus as part of general Multi-agent system study is frequently linked to Sampling, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

Many of his research projects under Consensus are closely connected to Stochastic process with Stochastic process, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. The Mathematical optimization study combines topics in areas such as Convergence, Convex function and Strongly connected component. His studies in Network topology integrate themes in fields like Dynamical systems theory, Linear system, Topology, Control theory and Topology.
