New Lyapunov-Krasovskii functionals for global asymptotic stability of delayed neural networks
This brief deals with the problem of global asymptotic stability for a class of delayed neural networks. Some new Lyapunov-Krasovskii functionals are constructed by nonuniformly dividing the delay interval into multiple segments, and choosing proper functionals with different weighting matrices corresponding to different segments in the Lyapunov-Krasovskii functionals. Then using these new Lyapunov-Krasovskii functionals, some new delay-dependent criteria for global asymptotic stability are derived for delayed neural networks, where both constant time delays and time-varying delays are treated. These criteria are much less conservative than some existing results, which is shown through a numerical example.
