Synchronization of stochastic discrete-time complex networks with partial mixed impulsive effects Academic Article uri icon


  • 2017 The Franklin Institute In this paper, the synchronization problem is studied for a class of stochastic discrete-time complex networks with partial mixed impulsive effects. The involving impulsive effects, called partial mixed impulses, can be regarded as local and time-varying impulses, which means that impulses are not only injected into a fraction of nodes in networks but also contain synchronizing and desynchronizing impulses at the same time. In order to handle this case, several mathematical techniques are proposed to tackle mixed impulsive effects in discrete-time dynamical systems. Based on the variation of parameters formula, several sufficient criteria are derived to ensure that synchronization of the addressed networks can be achieved in mean square. The obtained criteria not only rely on the strengths of mixed impulses and the impulsive intervals, but also can reduce conservativeness. Finally, a numerical example is presented to show the effectiveness of our results for neural networks.
