In this paper, the author considers the problem of designing H∞ formation control of multi-agent systems that are composed of distributed parameter systems of hyperbolic type. Although distributed parameter systems are infinite dimensional processes, the proposed control schemes are constructed from finite dimensional compensators. The control strategies are derived as solutions of certain H∞ control problems, and we can regard the artificial error terms in the potential functions and the effects of neglected infinite-dimensional modes as external disturbances to the processes. It is shown that the desirable formations are achieved approximately via adaptation schemes.
