Integral quadratic constraints (IQCs) are known to be a versatile tool for characterising input-output system behaviours in a form that facilitates robustness analysis of feedback interconnections. This talk presents an IQC framework within which to analyse the problem of output synchronisation of multiple agents subject to modelling uncertainty in the agent dynamics and communication channels. The obtained conditions for synchronism are shown to unify various results in the literature.
