  • Yunong ZhangEmail author

In this chapter, by defining three different ZFs, three different ZD models are proposed, generalized, developed, and investigated to solve the time-varying linear matrix-vector inequality. Theoretical results are given as well to show the excellent convergence performance of such ZD models. Computer simulation results are presented to further substantiate the efficacy of the proposed ZD models for time-varying linear matrix-vector inequality solving.
