Outer synchronization between drive-response networks with nonidentical nodes and unknown parameters. (English) Zbl 1258.34131

Summary: Through designing some proper controllers and adaptive updating laws, the outer synchronization between drive-response networks with nonidentical topological structure and unknown parameters are achieved and the unknown parameters are identified under given assumption. Several sufficient conditions for achieving outer synchronization are derived. Numerical simulations are provided to verify the effectiveness of the proposed methods.
