Finite-Time Passivity and Synchronization of Complex Dynamical Networks With State and Derivative Coupling. Academic Article uri icon


  • In this article, two kinds of complex dynamical networks (CDNs) with state and derivative coupling are investigated, respectively. First, some important concepts about finite-time passivity (FTP), finite-time output strict passivity, and finite-time input strict passivity are introduced. By making use of state-feedback controllers and adaptive state-feedback controllers, several sufficient conditions are given to guarantee the FTP of these two network models. On the other hand, based on the obtained FTP results, some finite-time synchronization criteria for the CDNs with state and derivative coupling are gained. Finally, two simulation examples are proposed to verify the availability of the derived results.
