Finite-Time Synchronization of Neural Networks With Infinite Discrete Time-Varying Delays and Discontinuous Activations. Academic Article uri icon


  • This article investigates finite-time synchronization of neural networks (NNs) with infinite discrete time-varying delays and discontinuous activations (DDNNs). By virtue of theory of differential inclusions, comparison strategies, and inequality techniques, finite-time synchronization of the underlying DDNNs can be developed via a discontinuous state feedback control law, and the synchronous settling time can be estimated. The delayed state feedback controller and finite-time stability theorem are not employed during the analysis. As a special case, finite-time synchronization of NNs with bounded delays and discontinuous activations is given. Finally, two examples are provided to illustrate the validity of the theories.
