Delay-dependent stochastic stability of delayed Hopfield neural networks with Markovian jump parameters. (English) Zbl 1132.34061

The authors consider a coupled system of \(n\) nonlinear differential equations with a single time lag – a continuous Hopfield model in which some parameters vary in time according to a Markov jump process. They establish stochastic asymptotic stability in terms of the solvability of a certain linear matrix inequality.
