Synchronization criteria and pinning control of general complex networks with time delay. (Synchronization criterions and pinning control of general complex networks with time delay.) (English) Zbl 1188.34100

The problem of synchronization for general time-delay complex dynamical networks is investigated. Some new and less conservative conditions are obtained for both continuous-time and discrete-time cases, which guarantee the synchronized states to be asymptotically stable. These conditions are converted to LMIs. Some numerical examples are presented.
