Application to Synchronization of Dynamical Networks
Complex dynamical networks consist of a large set of interconnected nodes with each node being a fundamental unit with detailed contents. A great number of natural and man-made complex networks such as social networks, food networks, neural networks, the World Wide Web, computer networks, electrical power grid and so on, can be effectively modelled by complex dynamical networks. Synchronization of a group of dynamical nodes in a complex network topology is one of the most interesting and significant phenomenon in complex dynamical networks. In this section, we shall discuss impulsive synchronization of the discrete delay networks. By employing the impulsive control method and the Razumikhin-type results obtained in previous chapter, two criteria for exponential synchronization will be derived.
