Abstract
This paper investigates the impacts of state-dependent impulses on the stability of switching Cohen-Grossberg neural networks (CGNN) by means of B-equivalence method. Under certain conditions, the state-dependent impulsive switching systems can be reduced to the fixed-time ones. Furthermore, a stability criterion for the considered CGNN using the proposed comparison system is established. Finally, two numerical examples are provided to illustrate the efficiency of the theoretical results.

1 Introduction
The well-known Cohen-Grossberg neural networks (CGNN), which is a large class of artificial neural networks including the Hopfield neural network, the cellular neural network, the shunting neural networks, and some ecological systems, were initially proposed and studied by Cohen and Grossberg [1] in 1983. Due to their promising potential diverse applications, such as pattern recognition, signal and image processing, associative memory, combinatorial optimization, and parallel computing, CGNN have attracted increasing interest for the past few decades. In particular, a CGNN optimization solver is desired to have a globally asymptotically stable equilibrium point that corresponds to the globally optimal solution of the objective function [2]. For that purpose, the global stability of CGNNs has been extensively studied and developed [3–11].
The instantaneous perturbations and abrupt changes at certain instant are exemplary of impulsive phenomena that can affect the evolutionary process of many complex systems. Impulsive phenomena widely exist in many fields such as epidemic prevention, population dynamics, economics [12–15], and so forth. Especially in real neural networks, impulsive perturbations are likely to emerge since the states of neural networks are changed abruptly at certain moments of time [16–18]. On the other hand, switched systems are systems with dynamic switching and can be used to model real systems whose dynamics are chosen from a family of possible choices according to a switching signal [19]. In [20], Li et al. studied the exponential stability of the switching systems. Recently, switching neural networks have been also proposed [21–23]. In [23], the authors introduced the Cohen-Grossberg neural networks into the switching systems and established the so-called switching Cohen-Grossberg neural networks.
In general, the impulsive systems can be classed into two types: impulsive systems with fixed-time impulses and impulsive systems with state-dependent impulses. State-dependent impulses are usually of state dependence, and thus, different solutions have different moments of impulses. Up to now, numerous monographs and articles have focused on the fixed-time impulsive systems [24–33], and only few publications have dealt with state-dependent impulses [34–37]. However, in real world problems, the impulses of many systems do not occur at fixed times [38], for example, biological and physiological systems including artificial neural networks, saving rates control systems, and some circuit control systems. In addition, we can also utilize the state-dependent impulses in some situations. In [39], the authors studied state impulsive control strategies for a two-language competitive model with bilingualism and interlinguistic similarity. It is evident that the state-dependent impulsive systems are much more difficult in modeling and control than the fixed-time impulsive systems.
Recently, Akhmet [40] proposed and developed a powerful analytical method, B-equivalence, which can reduce the state-dependent impulsive system to the fixed-time one that is expected to be the comparison system. However, the jump operator in the comparison system might be a very complex map and can hardly be used to analyze stability. Sayli and Yilmaz tried to investigate the stability of a state-dependent impulsive system using B-equivalence method in [34, 35]. Unfortunately, they could not estimate the relationship between the original jump operator and a new jump operator of the comparison system, just simply assumed that the new jump operator is linear with respect to system state. One should emphasize that there are few results in the literature where the reduction principle based on B-equivalence is effectively applied to stability analysis of state-dependent impulsive systems.
In the light of above discussion, it is of great importance to consider both state-dependent impulses and switching in the neural network models. In recent years, hybrid impulsive and switching systems have been extensively studied [41–43]. In [41], Li et al. investigated the global stability of impulsive switching HNN. However, they only consider the fixed-time impulse, and the impulses occur at switching instants, as well as in [42] and [43]. In [44], the authors also consider the fixed-time impulse, despite the fact that the impulses do not occur at the same time as the switching signals. In [45], Song et al. discussed the state-dependent impulses in nonlinear fractional-order systems. In [46] and [47], the authors investigated the impacts of state-dependent delay on the stability of nonlinear differential systems. In the present paper, we study the global stability of switching CGNNs with state-dependent impulses, where the switches occur at the fixed time, while the impulses do not occur at fixed times. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first switching CGNNs model that takes into account the state-dependent impulses. Firstly, we give the sufficient conditions that ensure every solution of system intersects each surface of discontinuity exactly once. Nextly, we prove the existence of solution to switching CGNN with state-dependent impulse. Then, we obtain the quantitative relation between new jump operators and system state and show that the global stability of the corresponding comparison system implies the same stability of the considered state-dependent impulsive switching CGNN. Finally, we establish a stability criterion for the considered CGNN using the proposed comparison system.
The rest of this paper is organized in this fashion. In Section 2, the problem is formulated and some preliminaries are given. We state the conditions of absence of beating and introduce B-equivalent method in Section 3. The existence of solution to switching CGNN with state-dependent impulse is shown in Section 4. We establish a criterion for the global stability of switching CGNNs with state-dependent impulses in Section 5. In Section 6, two numerical examples are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the theoretical results. Finally, Section 7 concludes the contributions of this work and points out some problems and challenges.
2 Problem formulation and preliminaries
Throughout this paper, \(R_{+}\) and \(R^{n}\) denote, respectively, the set of nonnegative real numbers and the n-dimensional Euclidean space, \(Z_{+}\) represents the set of positive integers, and we denote by \(\Gamma_{i}=\{(t,x(t))\in R_{+}\times G: t=\theta_{i}+\tau_{i}(x(t)),t\in R_{+},i\in Z_{+},x\in G,G\subset R^{n} \}\) the ith surface of discontinuity. We denote by I the identity matrix, by \(P^{T}\) the transpose of matrix P, \(\operatorname{diag}\{\cdots\}\) the block-diagonal matrix. For \(x \in R^{n}\), \(\Vert x \Vert \) denotes the Euclidean norm of x. For matrix \(A \in R^{n\times n}\), \(\Vert A \Vert = \sqrt{\max\{|\lambda(A^{T} A)|\}}\), where \(\lambda(\cdot)\) represents the eigenvalue value.
Next, we introduce the following assumptions.
Assumption A
- (i)
\(\Vert A_{h}(x(t))-A_{h}(y(t)) \Vert \leq L_{ah} \Vert x(t)-y(t) \Vert \) for any \(x(t),y(t)\in R^{n}\);
- (ii)
\(\Vert B_{h}(x(t))-B_{h}(y(t)) \Vert \leq L_{bh} \Vert x(t)-y(t) \Vert \) for any \(x(t),y(t)\in R^{n}\);
- (iii)
\(\Vert f_{h}(x(t))-f_{h}(y(t)) \Vert \leq L_{fh} \Vert x(t)-y(t) \Vert \) for any \(x(t),y(t)\in R^{n}\).
Assumption B
For each \(i\in Z_{+}\), \(x\in G\), \(J_{i}(x):G\rightarrow G\) is continuous, satisfying that \(J_{i}(0)=0\), \(\tau_{i}(0)=0\), and there exists a positive constant \(L_{J}\) such that \(\Vert x+J_{i}(x) \Vert \leq L_{J} \Vert x \Vert \).
Remark 1
Let \(x(t)\) be a solution of system (1) at the impulsive point \(\xi_{k}\), \(x(\xi_{k}+)=x(\xi_{k})+J_{k}(x(\xi_{k}))\). We get \(\Vert x(\xi_{k}+) \Vert \leq L_{J} \Vert x(\xi_{k}) \Vert \) by Assumption B. Generally, when \(L_{J}<1\), the impulse at \(\xi _{k}\) is of stabilizing effect on system stability, it is referred to as stabilizing impulse. Otherwise, if \(\Vert x(\xi_{k}+) \Vert \geq L_{J} \Vert x(\xi_{k}) \Vert \) and \(L_{J}>1\), the impulse at \(\xi_{k}\) is of destabilizing effect on system stability, it is usually referred to as destabilizing impulse.
Remark 2
From Assumption B and the previous discussions, one can easily see that the origin of system (1) is an equilibrium point. The uniqueness of this equilibrium point can be concluded from the global asymptotic or exponential stability constructed in Section 5.
Finally, we present several definitions.
Definition 1
[41]
- (i)for \(t\in[\theta_{0}, \theta_{1}]\), \(x(t)\) satisfies the following system:$$ \textstyle\begin{cases} \dot{x}(t)=-A_{l_{0}}(x(t))[B_{l_{0}}(x(t))-C_{l_{0}}f_{l_{0}}(x(t))], \quad t\in[\theta_{0}, \theta_{1}], \\ x(\theta_{0})=x_{0}, \end{cases} $$
- (ii)assume that the solution has already been determined in the interval \([\theta_{0}, \theta_{i}]\), it is \(x(t)\), then for \((\theta_{i}, \theta_{i+1}]\), \(x(t)\) satisfies the following system:$$ \textstyle\begin{cases} \dot{x}(t)= -A_{l_{i}}(x(t))[B_{l_{i}}(x(t))-C_{l_{i}}f_{l_{i}}(x(t))], \\ \quad t\in(\theta_{i}, \theta_{i+1}],\mbox{ and } t \neq\theta_{i}+\tau _{i}(x(t)), \\ \Delta x(t) =J_{i}(x(t)), \quad t = \theta_{i}+\tau_{i}(x(t)), \end{cases} $$
- (iii)
\(x(t)\) is continuous except for \(t=\xi_{i}\), and it is left continuous at \(t=\xi_{i}\), and the right limit \(x(\xi_{i}+)\) exists for \(i\in Z_{+}\).
Definition 2
[32]
- (a)
V is continuous in \((\tau_{i-1},\tau_{i}]\times R^{n}\) and for each \(x\in R^{n},i=1,2,3,\ldots \) , \(\lim_{(t,y)\rightarrow(\tau _{i}^{+},x)}V(t,y)=V(\tau_{i}^{+},x)\) exists.
- (b)
V is locally Lipschitzian in x.
From this definition, we can see that V associated with system (1) is the analog of Lyapunov function for stability analysis of ODE. Since these Lyapunov-like functions are generally discontinuous, a generalized derivative should be defined, which is known as the right and upper Dini’s derivative.
Definition 3
[32]
Definition 4
[41]
A dynamical system of the form \(\dot{x}(t)=f(t,x(t))\) is said to be a \(\pi_{1}\)-class system if there exist a positive-definite Lyapunov function \(V(t)=x^{T}Px\) and a positive constant α such that the Dini’s derivative of V along the solution of the dynamical system satisfies \(D^{+}V(t)\leq-\alpha V(t)\).
3 The conditions for absence of beating and B-equivalent method
- (C1)
For each \(i\in Z_{+}, \tau_{i}(x)\) is continuous and there exists a positive constant ν such that \(0< \tau_{i}(x)\leq\nu\).
- (C2)
There exist two positive numbers \(\underline{\theta}\) and θ̄ such that \(\underline{\theta}<\theta_{i+1}-\theta_{i}<\bar {\theta}\), where \(\underline{\theta}>\nu\), for all \(i\in Z_{+}\).
- (C3)Fix any \(j\in Z_{+}\), and let \(x(t): (\theta_{j}, \theta_{j}+\nu ]\rightarrow G\) be a solution of (1) in time interval \((\theta _{j}, \theta_{j}+\nu]\). One of the following two conditions is satisfied:where \(t=\xi_{j}\) is the discontinuity point of (1), i.e., \(\xi_{j}=\theta_{j}+\tau_{j}(x(\xi_{j}))\).$$\begin{aligned} \mathrm{(i)}&\quad \textstyle\begin{cases} \frac{d\tau_{j}(x)}{dx} \{ -A_{l_{j}}(x(t))[B_{l_{j}}(x(t))-C_{l_{j}}f_{l_{j}}(x(t))]\}>1, & x\in G, \\ \tau_{j}[x(\xi_{j})+J_{j}(x(\xi_{j}))]\geq\tau_{j}(x(\xi_{j})), & t=\xi_{j}, \end{cases}\displaystyle \\ \mathrm{(ii)}&\quad \textstyle\begin{cases} \frac{d\tau_{j}(x)}{dx} \{ -A_{l_{j}}(x(t))[B_{l_{j}}(x(t))-C_{l_{j}}f_{l_{j}}(x(t))]\}< 1, & x\in G, \\ \tau_{j}[x(\xi_{j})+J_{j}(x(\xi_{j}))]\leq\tau_{j}(x(\xi_{j})), & t=\xi_{j}, \end{cases}\displaystyle \end{aligned}$$
Lemma 1
Assume that conditions (C1) and (C2) are satisfied, and \(x(t):R_{+}\rightarrow G\) is a solution of (1). Then \(x(t)\) intersects every surface \(\Gamma_{i}\), \(i\in Z_{+}\).
The proof of Lemma 1 is quite similar to that of Lemma 5.3.2 in [40], so it is omitted here.
Lemma 2
Let (C3) hold. Then every solution of system (1) intersects the surface \(\Gamma_{i}\) at most once.
Proof
Via the above lemmas, one can get the following result.
Theorem 1
Suppose that (C1), (C2), and (C3) are fulfilled. Then every solution \(x(t):R_{+}\rightarrow G\) of system (1) intersects each surface \(\Gamma_{i}\), \(i\in\underline{Z^{+}}\), exactly once.
Now, we formulate the B-equivalent system for system (1). Let \(x^{0}(t)=x(t,\theta_{i},x^{0}(\theta_{i}))\) be a solution of (1) in \([\theta_{i},\theta_{i+1}]\). Denote by \(\xi_{i}\) the meeting moment of the solution with the surface \(\Gamma_{i}\) of discontinuity so that \(\xi_{i}= \theta_{i}+\tau_{i}(x^{0}(\xi_{i}))\). Let \(x^{1}(t)\) be a solution of (2) in \([\theta_{i},\theta_{i+1}]\) such that \(x^{1}(\xi_{i})=x^{0}(\xi_{i}^{+})=x^{0}(\xi_{i})+J_{i}(x^{0}(\xi_{i}))\).
Remark 3
By the definition of \(W_{i}(x^{0}(\theta_{i}))\) together with Figure 1, \(x^{1}(t)=x(t,\xi_{i},x^{0}(\xi_{i}^{+}))\) can be extended as the solution of system (5) in \(R_{+}\). Clearly, \(x^{1}(t)\) is continuous on \((\theta_{i}, \theta_{i+1}]\), and \(W_{i}(x^{0}(\theta_{i}))\) is limited. On this basis, we make the following assumption.
Assumption C
For any solution \(x^{1}(t)\) to system (5), \(x^{1}(t)\) is bounded, i.e., there exists a positive constant H such that \(\Vert (x^{1}(t)) \Vert \leq H\) for any \(t\in R_{+}\).
In Section 4, we will learn that Assumption C holds if Assumptions A, B, and (C1)-(C3) are valid.
Moreover, we have the following observations without proof:
Observation 1
On time interval \((\xi_{i},\theta_{i+1}]\), \(x^{1}(t)= x^{0}(t)\), and \(x^{1}(\theta_{i}+)=x^{0}(\theta_{i})+W_{i}(x^{0}(\theta_{i}))\), \(x^{1}(\xi_{i})=x^{0}(\xi_{i}+)=x^{0}(\xi_{i})+J_{i}(x^{0}(\xi_{i}))\).
Observation 2
Remark 4
System (5), which is a fixed-time impulsive switching system, is called the B-equivalent system of (1) from Observation 1 and [40]. We refer the reader to the book [40] for a more detailed discussion. In Section 5, we will show that its stability implies the same stability of state-dependent impulsive switching system (1).
4 The existence of solution for switching CGNN with state-dependent impulse
In this section, we will show the existence of solution of impulsive and switching systems (1) and (5).
Theorem 2
Let Assumptions A, B, and (C1)-(C3) hold, then a solution of system (1) exists on \([\theta_{i},\theta_{i+1}]\).
Proof
To prove this theorem, we firstly show that the following claim holds:
Claim. Let \(F_{l_{i}}(t,x)=-A_{l_{i}}(x(t))[B_{l_{i}}(x(t))-C_{l_{i}}f_{l_{i}}(x(t))]\), then \(F_{l_{i}}(t,x)\) satisfies a local Lipschitz condition on \([\theta_{i},\xi_{i}]\times G\) and \((\xi_{i},\theta_{i+1}]\times G\).
Based on the above discussions, the following theorem is immediate.
Theorem 3
Let Assumptions A, B, and (C1)-(C3) be valid, then a solution of system (5) exists on \((\theta_{i},\theta_{i+1}]\).
Combining Definition 1 and Remark 3, one can get the existence of solution of impulsive and switching systems (1) and (5).
Remark 5
By the previous discussions, we can see that the solution \(x^{1}(t)\) of system (5) is piecewise continuous. Since \(\lim_{t\rightarrow\theta_{i}+}x^{1}(t)=x^{1}(\theta_{i}+)=x^{0}(\theta _{i})+W_{i}(x^{0}(\theta_{i}))\), then \(x^{1}(t)\) is bounded on \((\theta_{i},\theta _{i+1}]\). Furthermore, \(x^{1}(t)\) is bounded for any \(t\in R_{+}\). That is, Assumption C is valid if the conditions of Theorem 3 are satisfied.
5 A criterion for the stability of switching CGNN with state-dependent impulse
In this section, we will investigate the stability of impulsive and switching systems (5) and (1) and establish the stability criteria for systems (1).
Theorem 4
Proof
Remark 6
Remark 7
From Theorem 4 and Observation 1, one can see that for any solution of (1), \(x^{0}(t)\), there must exist a solution of (5), \(x^{1}(t)\), such that \(\Vert x^{1}(t)-x^{0}(t) \Vert \leq \delta \Vert x^{0}(\theta_{i}) \Vert \) for \(t\in(\theta_{i},\xi_{i}]\); and \(x^{1}(t)=x^{0}(t)\) for \(t\in[\theta _{0},\theta_{1}]\cup(\xi_{i},\theta_{i+1}]\), and vice versa.
Theorem 5
Proof
(i) Since the trivial solution of system (5) is globally asymptotically stable, then \(\lim_{t\rightarrow\infty }x^{1}(t)=0\), and \(\lim_{i\rightarrow\infty}x^{1}(\theta_{i})=0\).
(ii) Let \(x^{0}(t)=x(t,\theta_{i},x^{0}(\theta_{i}))\) be a solution of system (1), for the corresponding solution \(x^{1}(t)\) of system (5), we can assume that there exist positive scalars \(M_{1}>0,\gamma_{1}>0\) such that \(x^{1}(t)\) satisfies that \(\Vert x^{1}(t) \Vert \leq M_{1} \exp(-\gamma_{1}(t-\theta _{0}))\) by the global exponential stability of system (5), where \(t\geq\theta_{0}\).
Theorem 6
Then \(\lim_{t\rightarrow\infty}\varphi(\theta_{0},t)=-\infty\) implies that the trivial solution of (5) is globally asymptotically stable; and \(\varphi(\theta_{0},t)\leq M-d(t-\theta_{0})\), \(t\geq\theta_{0}\), with \(M>0\) and \(d>0\) being constants, implies that the origin of system (5) is globally exponentially stable.
Proof
Corollary 1
- (i)\(\alpha_{h}<-\alpha<-\varrho<0\), where α and ϱ are constants such that$$\ln\bigl(\rho\beta_{h}^{p}\bigr)-\varrho( \theta_{i+1}-\theta_{i})\leq0. $$
- (ii)α and η are two positive constants satisfying \(\eta >\alpha\geq|\alpha_{h}|\) such that$$\ln\bigl(\rho\beta_{h}^{p}\bigr)+\eta(\theta_{i+1}- \theta_{i})\leq0. $$
The proof of this corollary is quite similar to that of Corollary 1 in [41], so we omit it here.
Remark 8
Now, let us consider a special case.
Corollary 2
- (i)
\(D^{+}V_{h} (x(t) )+\alpha V_{h} (x(t) )<0\), and \(\ln (\rho\beta_{h}^{p} )-\alpha \underline{\theta}\leq0\),
- (ii)
\(D^{+}V_{h} (x(t) )-\alpha V_{h} (x(t) ) < 0\), and \(\ln (\rho\beta_{h}^{p} )+\alpha\bar{\theta}\leq0\),
Proof
Remark 9
In condition (i) of Corollary 2, let \(-\eta=\max\{\alpha _{1},\alpha_{2},\ldots,\alpha_{m}\}\), we can easily find η. Similarly, in condition (ii) of Corollary 2, let \(\zeta=\max\{\alpha_{1},\alpha_{2},\ldots,\alpha _{m}\}\), one finds ζ. That is, the conditions of Corollary 2 can really hold.
It is time to present the main result for the stability criterion of system (1) by means of system (5). Based on the above discussions, the following result is immediate.
Theorem 7
Then \(\lim_{t\rightarrow\infty}\varphi(\theta_{0},t)=-\infty\) implies that the trivial solution of (1) is globally asymptotically stable; and \(\varphi(\theta_{0},t)\leq M-d(t-\theta_{0})\), \(t\geq\theta_{0}\), with \(M>0\) and \(d>0\) being constants, implies that the origin of system (1) is globally exponentially stable.
Similar to Corollaries 1 and 2, there is also a corresponding corollary by Theorem 7 here.
Corollary 3
- (i)\(\alpha_{h}<-\alpha<-\varrho<0\), where α and ϱ are constants such that$$\ln\bigl(\rho\beta_{h}^{p}\bigr)-\varrho( \theta_{i+1}-\theta_{i})\leq0. $$
- (ii)α and η are two positive constants satisfying \(\eta >\alpha\geq|\alpha_{h}|\) such that$$\ln\bigl(\rho\beta_{h}^{p}\bigr)+\eta(\theta_{i+1}- \theta_{i})\leq0. $$
Corollary 4
- (i)
\(D^{+}V_{h} (x(t) )+\alpha V_{h} (x(t) )<0\), and \(\ln (\rho\beta_{h}^{p} )-\alpha \underline{\theta}\leq0\),
- (ii)
\(D^{+}V_{h} (x(t) )-\alpha V_{h} (x(t)) < 0\), and \(\ln (\rho\beta_{h}^{p} )+\alpha\bar{\theta}\leq0\),
6 Two numerical examples
In this section, two numerical examples are given to show the effectiveness of the theoretical results mentioned in the previous sections. For the sake of simplicity, in what follows, an impulsive switching CGNN model with only two neurons is analyzed, and it is supposed that each hybrid system has only two subsystems and the switching sequence is \(1 \rightarrow2 \rightarrow1 \rightarrow2 \rightarrow\cdots\) .
Example 1
Remark 10
One can see from Figure 2 that our conditions are very conservative, and we look forward to improving these conditions in future research.
Example 2
Remark 11
It can be seen from Figure 3 that stabilizing impulses can stabilize the unstable continuous subsystem at its equilibrium point, which is inconsistent with the theoretical prediction.
7 Conclusions and discussions
In the present paper, we have studied the impacts of state-dependent impulses on the stability of switching Cohen-Grossberg neural networks using B-equivalence method. Moreover, we have obtained a stability criterion for the considered CGNN. However, the estimation on the norm of transformation map \(W_{i}(x)\) is very conservative, which leads to conservative stability conditions. It is expected to release these conditions for certain CGNN and to extend the presented method to delayed systems or more general impulsive switching systems.
