Abstract [en]

In this paper we provide necessary conditions for the existence of multiple equilibrium points for a class of non-linear cooperative networked systems with saturating interactions which describe models of collective decision-making. The multiple steady states of the dynamics represent the possible outcomes of a decision process, and, except for one positive and one negative, have all mixed signs. The conditions we obtain can be formulated in terms of the algebraic connectivity of the network and are inspired by Perron-Frobenius arguments. It is also shown that the mixed-sign equilibria are contained in a ball of radius given by the norm of the positive equilibrium point and centered in the origin. Numerical examples are given to illustrate the results.
