This paper discusses the problem for cluster synchronization control of a nonlinear complex spatio-temporal dynamical network (CSDN) with community structure. Initially, a collocated boundary controller with boundary measurement is studied to achieve the cluster synchronization of the CSDN. After that, a guaranteed cost boundary controller is further developed based on the obtained results. Furthermore, the suboptimal control design is addressed by minimizing an upper bound of the cost function. Finally, a numerical example is given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed methods.
