In this chapter, the stabilization problem of complex dynamical network with non-delayed and delayed couplings is realized by a new kind of stochastic pinning controller being partially delay dependent, where the topologies related to couplings may be exchanged. The designed pinning controller is different from the traditional ones, whose non-delay and delay state terms occur asynchronously with a certain probability, respectively. Sufficient conditions for the stabilization of complex dynamical network over topology exchange are derived by the robust method and are presented with liner matrix inequities (LMIs). The switching between the non-delayed and delayed couplings is modeled by the related coupling matrices containing uncertainties. It has shown that the bound of such uncertainties play very important roles in the controller design. Moreover, when the bound is inaccessible, a kind of adaptive partially delay-dependent controller is proposed to deal with this general case, where another adaptive control problem in terms of unknown probability is considered too. Finally, some numerical simulations are used to demonstrate the correctness and effectiveness of our theoretical analysis.

With the rapid development of science and technology, human beings have marched into the network era, and complex network has become a hot topic. Complex network is an important method to describe and study complex systems, and all complex systems can be abstracted from practical background by different perspectives and become a complex network of interacting individuals, such as ecological network, food network, gene regulation network, social network, and distributed sensor network. Research on complex network has become a frontier subject with many subjects and challenges. Over the past few years, studies on complex network have received more and more attention from various fields of scientific research See [1–5]. The popularization of complex network has also caused a series of important problems about the network structures and studies of the network dynamic behaviors. Particularly, special attention has been paid to the studies of synchronization control problems of complex dynamical networks. As one of the significant dynamic behaviors of complex dynamical network, synchronization is widely used in neural network, public transit scheduling, laser system, secure communization system, information science, etc. [6–11]. So it is concerned by more and more scholars. In real networks, because of the complex dynamical network having a great many nodes, and every node has its dynamical behavior, it is hard for the complex dynamical network itself to make the states of the network to desired trajectory. Thus, the studies on the control strategy of complex dynamical network will be meaningful. So far, many control methods for complex dynamical network have been reported in refs. [12–17]. Pinning control such as in refs. [18–20] is widely welcomed for its advantages. It is easy to be realized and can save the cost effectively. The main idea of pinning control is to control a part of nodes in the complex networks to realize the whole network to the expected states and to reduce the number of the controllers effectively. When there exist some unknown parameters, the adaptive control method could be exploited, some of which was mentioned in refs. [21–23].

On the other hand, there are many factors that affect the stability of complex network, where time delay and network topology are two important factors. First, time delay is an objective phenomenon in nature and human society. In the process of transmission and response of complex network, it is inevitable to produce time delay, which is because of the physical limitations of the speed of transmission and the existence of network congestion, such as the existence of time delay in communication network and virus transmission. There are some typical time delay network systems such as circuit system [24], satellite communication system [25], and laser array system [26]. It is noticed that the majority of the studies on complex network have been performed on some absolute assumptions. For example, the stabilization referred to state feedback control is realized only by a non-delay or delay controller, which is relied on some absolute assumptions [18, 19, 27]. However, in many practical applications, these assumptions do not accord with the peculiarities of the real networks. Based on these facts, we may design a kind of controller that contains non-delay and delay states simultaneously. Second, the topology of the network plays an important role in determining the network characteristics and the synchronization control. The research of coupling delay also plays a significant role in complex networks. In most of the above papers, it is seen that the topologies are fixed. But in practical applications, the topological structure of the complex network is not constant and may be changed randomly. That is because of the influence of various stochastic factors. In this case, how to ensure the stabilization of networks by the proposed controller when the topologies related to couplings change is worth discussing.

Motivated by the above discussions, in this chapter, the stabilization problem of complex networks with non-delayed and delayed couplings over random exchanges is studied by exploiting the robust method to describe the topologies exchanging randomly. A kind of stochastic pinning controller being partially delay-dependent is developed, which contains non-delay and delay terms simultaneously but occur asynchronously. Here, the probability distributions are taken into account in the proposed controller design. The rest of this chapter is organized as follows: In Section 2, the model of complex dynamical networks with non-delayed and delayed couplings over random exchanges is established. In Section 3, the stabilization of the underlying complex networks is considered, which is realized by partially delay-dependent controller and adaptive controller respectively. A numerical example is demonstrated in Section 4; the conclusion of this chapter is given in Section 5.

As is known, time delay is ubiquitous in many network systems. When time delay exists in the interaction, it may affect the dynamic behavior and even destabilize the network system. Thus, time delay should be taken into consideration, which could accurately reflect some characteristics of networks. By investing the existing literatures, it is easy to find that most of the results on complex networks have been carried out under some implicit assumptions. That is the communication information of nodes is only related to * x*(

Considering a kind of complex dynamical network consisting of * N* nodes and every node is a

where _{i}(* t*) = (

* c* > 0 is the coupling strength among the nodes.

Here, the topologies of the complex network are more general, whose related coupling matrices exchange each other randomly. That is, * A* changes into

From these demonstrations, it is seen that the above two complex networks occur separately and randomly. To describe the above random switching between coupling matrices * A* and

when * ΔA* = (

where * δ** is a given positive scalar.

Before giving the main results, a definition is needed.

** Definition 1.** The complex network (1) is asymptotically stable over topologies exchanging randomly, if the complex network (3) with condition (4) is asymptotically stable.

Based on the proposed model, this section focuses on the design of stochastic pinning controller. By investigating the existing references, it is found that most of the stabilization results of complex networks are achieved by either non-delay or delay controllers. However, from the above explanations, it is said that two such controllers may not describe the actual systems very well. Here, a kind of partially delay-dependent pinning controller containing both non-delay and delay states that take place with a certain probability is proposed to deal with the general case. Without loss of generality, it is assumed that the first * l* nodes are selected to be added the desired pinning controller

where _{i} and _{di} are the non-delayed and delayed coupling control gains, respectively. * α*(

whose probabilities are expressed by

where * α** ∈ [0, 1]. In addition, it is obtained that

Substituting _{i}(* t*) into complex network (3), one has

which is equivalent to

** Assumption 1.** Supposing that there exists a positive definite diagonal matrix

** THEOREM 1.** Let Assumption 1 hold, for given scalars

is satisfied, where

** Proof.** For complex network (9), we choose a Lyapunov function as follows:

where * j* = 1, 2, …,

Then, one has

where

It is guaranteed by _{1} < 0. By condition (12), it is known that L* V*(

** REMARK 1.** It is worth mentioning that for any given function

Based on Theorem 1, it is claimed that * Q* is selected with a general case. However, it may be selected to be some special cases. When

** COROLLARY 1.** Let Assumption 1 hold, for given scalars

is satisfied, where the other symbols are defined in Theorem 1.

** Proof.** Based on Theorem 1 and using the Schur complement lemma, one has

implying _{1} < 0. By choosing

This completes the proof.

When there is no topology exchange, we will have the following corollary directly.

** COROLLARY 2.** Let Assumption 1 hold, for given scalar

where * φ*,

It is seen that the expectation of * α*(

where * Δα* ∈ [−

** THEOREM 2.** Let Assumption 1 hold, for given scalars

hold, where

** Proof.** Based on the proof of Theorem 1, it is known that the stabilization of complex network (9) over random exchanges with (20) is guaranteed by (12), which is equivalent to

It could be rewritten as

That is

which is implied by

Taking into account condition (22), it is further guaranteed by

which is (21) actually. This completes the proof.

When * α** is unknown, how to stabilize a complex network through a pinning controller should also be taken into consideration. In this section, we will exploit the adaptive pinning control method to deal with this general case.

** THEOREM 3.** Let Assumption 1 hold, for given scalar

holds with * Â* =

where

and the updating law

where ∀* ó* > 0 and

** Proof.** Here, the Lyapunov function is defined as

where * Q* are same as the ones in (13). Then, it is obtained

where

This completes the proof.

On the other hand, it is obtained that * δ** is also important to the control of the complex network. When it is unavailable, how to get the sufficient condition for the stabilization of complex network is an interesting problem to be discussed. In the next, such a problem will be solved by the following theorem.

** THEOREM 4.** Let Assumption 1 hold, for given scalar

holds, then the complex network (9) is asymptotically stable over topology exchange (4) under the adaptive pinning controller

where

and the updating law

where * ξ* is a positive constant and

** Proof.** For this case, we choose the Lyapunov function as

where

where

It is guaranteed by _{3} < 0 which is equivalent to (33). This completes the proof.

## 5. Conclusion

In this chapter, the stabilization problem of complex dynamical network with non-delayed and delayed couplings exchanging randomly has been realized by a new kind of stochastic pinning controller being partially delay-dependent, where the switching between the non-delayed and delayed couplings is modeled by the related coupling matrices containing uncertainties. Different from the traditional pinning methods, the designed pinning controller contains non-delay and delay state terms simultaneously but occurs asynchronously with a certain probability, respectively. Sufficient conditions for the stabilization of complex dynamical network over topology exchange are derived by the robust method and presented with liner matrix inequities (LMIs). It has been shown that the probability distributions of non-delay and delay states in addition to the bound of such uncertainties play very important roles in the controller design. Moreover, when the probability is inaccessible, a kind of adaptive partially delay-dependent controller is proposed to deal with this general case, where another adaptive control problem in terms of unknown bound is also considered. Finally, the correctness and feasibility of the proposed method are verified by a numerical simulation.
