In this paper, anti-synchronization problem of two identical chaotic neural networks with time-varying delays is proposed. By using time-delay feedback control technique, mean value theorem and the Leibniz-Newton formula, and by constructing appropriately Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional, sufficient condition is proposed to guarantee the asymptotically anti-synchronization of two identical chaotic neural networks. This condition, which is expressed in terms of linear matrix inequality, rely on the connection matrix in the drive and response networks as well as the suitable designed feedback gains in the response network. Finally, the anti-synchronization of two chaotic cellular neural network and Hopfield neural network with time-varying delays are considered to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme, in which, when compared with the nonlinear feedback control method, the proposed method shows superior performance.
Key words: Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional, chaotic neural networks, anti-synchronization, time-varying delay, linear matrix inequality.
