This study considers a consensus problem of discretetime highorder multiagent systems with digraph. A concept rconsensus for discretetime multiagent systems is introduced, and consensus protocols are proposed for solving such problems. A sufficient and necessary condition for rconsensus is obtained using matrix theory. As a special case, criteria of rconsensus for thirdorder systems are given, in which the exact relationship of feedback parameters is established. Finally, the effectiveness of the theoretical results is demonstrated through a numerical simulation.
