In practical situations, there exists much uncertain information in complex networks, such as the topological structures and the time delays. So the identification of the topology is an important issue in the research of the complex networks with time delays. In this paper, we consider the problem of identification of the topology of modified complex networks with non-delayed and delayed coupling, and achieve the synchronization of the response networks with the drive networks. Finally, some simulation results are given to show the effectiveness of the method proposed in this paper.
