A model for the cooperation of autonomous agents of a multiagent system based on self-coordination is developed. A method is proposed to set up controls for each agent based on Kirchhoff matrices, sets of mutual-position vectors, and combined attraction-repulsion potential functions. The proposed approach was modeled for the formation of a multiagent system structure with desired topology.
