## WHAT IS IT?
The simulation demonstrates that by choosing the appropriate sampling period, gathering of
multi-agent system (4 agents) can be reached if and only if the sampling period is chosen from
some particular time intervals depending on the coupling strengths the connectivity topology.
## HOW IT WORKS
The simulation is updated via the state space representation of a switched dynamical system
with switches defined by the sampling period.
## HOW TO USE IT
Setup – initialize locations.
Go – run simulation.
Alpha – strength alpha.
Beta – strength beta.
Update Time – sample period.
## THINGS TO NOTICE
Choosing 0 < beta < alpha will almost surely lead to gathering.
Update time effects the convergence rate.
