Stability analysis of Hopfield neural networks with time delay. (English) Zbl 1015.92004

Summary: The global asymptotic stability for Hopfield neural networks with time delays is investigated. A theorem and two corollaries are obtained, where boundedness and differentiability assumptions in some other articles are avoided. Some sufficient conditions for existence of global asymptotic stable equilibria of the networks in this paper are better than the sufficient conditions in some other articles.
