Passivity and Output Synchronization of Complex Dynamical Networks With Fixed and Adaptive Coupling Strength

Jigang Wu, Huai-Ning Wu, Jin-Liang Wang, Tingwen Huang, Shun-Yan Ren,
This paper considers a complex dynamical network model, in which the input and output vectors have different dimensions. We, respectively, investigate the passivity and the relationship between output strict passivity and output synchronization of the complex dynamical network with fixed and adaptive coupling strength. First, two new passivity definitions are proposed, which generalize some existing concepts of passivity. By constructing appropriate Lyapunov functional, some sufficient conditions ensuring the passivity, input strict passivity and output strict passivity are derived for the complex dynamical network with fixed coupling strength. In addition, we also reveal the relationship between output strict passivity and output synchronization of the complex dynamical network with fixed coupling strength. By employing the relationship between output strict passivity and output synchronization, a sufficient condition for output synchronization of the complex dynamical network with fixed coupling strength is established. Then, we extend these results to the case when the coupling strength is adaptively adjusted. Finally, two examples with numerical simulations are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed criteria.
