The authors investigate the global asymptotic stability of delayed cellular neural network described by equations of neutral type
where corresponds to the state of the -th neuron, and denotes the activation functions, and are constant connection weights, is the external input on the -th neuron, . The activation fuctions satisfy a usual condition of the form
A theorem on delay-dependent conditions for global asymptotic stability is obtained in the form of linear matrix inequality. For the proof of the result an appropriate Lyapunov functional is constructed as a sum of quadratic forms and integrals of them.
The advantage of the proposed approach is that the result can be used efficiently through existing numerical convex optimization algorithm for solving the linear matrix inequality. An illustrative numerical example is presented.
