Local and global exponential synchronization of complex delayed dynamical networks with general topology

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, we consider a generalized complex network possessing general topology, in which the coupling may be nonlinear, time-varying, nonsymmetric and the elements of each node have different time-varying delays. Some criteria on local and global exponential synchronization are derived in form of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs) for the complex network by constructing suitable Lyapunov functionals. Our results show that the obtained sufficient conditions are less conservative than ones in previous publications. Finally, two numerical examples and their simulation results are given to illustrate the effectiveness of the derived results.
