The main contribution of this paper is to introduce a novel non-Lipschitz protocol that guarantees consensus in finite-time domain. Its convergence in networks with both unidirectional and bidirectional links is investigated via Lyapunov Theorem approach. It is also proved that final agreement value is equal to average of agents’ states for the bidirectional communication case. In addition effects of communication time-delay on stability are assessed and two other continuous Lipschitz protocols are also analyzed.
