Self-excitation of neurons leads to multiperiodicity of discrete-time neural networks with distributed delays. (English) Zbl 1227.93074

Summary: We investigate the interesting multiperiodicity of discrete-time neural networks with excitatory self-connections and distributed delays. Due to self-excitation of neurons, we construct \(2^N\) closed regions in state space for \(N\)-dimensional networks and attain the coexistence of \(2^N\) periodic sequence solutions in these closed regions. Meanwhile, we estimate exponential attracting domain for each periodic sequence solution and apply our results to discrete-time analogues of periodic or autonomous neural networks. Under self-excitation of neurons, numerical simulations are performed to illustrate the effectiveness of our results.
