Abstract: In this paper, we use the H 2 norm associated with a communication graph to characterize the robustness of consensus to noise. In particular, we restrict our attention to trees, and by systematic attention to the effect of local changes in topology, we derive a partial ordering for undirected trees according to the H 2 norm. Our approach for undirected trees provides a constructive method for deriving an ordering for directed trees. Further, our approach suggests a decentralized manner in which trees can be rearranged in order to improve their robustness. © 2011 IEEE.
