Recent Advances on Dynamical Behaviors of Coupled Neural Networks With and Without Reaction-Diffusion Terms. Academic Article uri icon


  • Recently, the dynamical behaviors of coupled neural networks (CNNs) with and without reaction-diffusion terms have been widely researched due to their successful applications in different fields. This article introduces some important and interesting results on this topic. First, synchronization, passivity, and stability analysis results for various CNNs with and without reaction-diffusion terms are summarized, including the results for impulsive, time-varying, time-invariant, uncertain, fuzzy, and stochastic network models. In addition, some control methods, such as sampled-data control, pinning control, impulsive control, state feedback control, and adaptive control, have been used to realize the desired dynamical behaviors in CNNs with and without reaction-diffusion terms. In this article, these methods are summarized. Finally, some challenging and interesting problems deserving of further investigation are discussed.
