In a variety of modern man-made systems, it is desirable to synthesize a cooperative behavior in groups of individual dynamical agents by distributed control laws. Examples include multi-vehicle coordination and formation flight problems, robot cooperation in production lines, as well as power balancing in micro-grids, and many more. As a consequence, distributed and cooperative control has become one of the major research fields within automatic control over the past decade. In this talk, we address output synchronization problems for linear multi-agent systems as well as cooperative disturbance rejection and reference tracking problems for groups of autonomous agents subject to exogenous inputs. Suitable control design methods are presented as a solution to a variety of practically relevant distributed coordination and cooperative control scenarios and illustrated by means of numerical examples.
