Adaptive synchronization of bipartite dynamical networks with distributed delays and nonlinear derivative coupling. (English) Zbl 1219.93051

Summary: This paper investigates the synchronization in a class of bipartite dynamical networks with distributed delays and nonlinear derivative coupling. Based on Lyapunov’s stability theory, some useful synchronization criteria are established for the two coupled bipartite dynamical networks by constructing effective adaptive feedback controllers and update laws. The numerical simulations are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the theoretical results obtained in this paper.
