Design of Exponential State Estimators for Neutral-Type Neural Networks with Mixed Time Delays

Bo Du

In this paper, the state estimation problem is dealt with for a class of neutral-type neural networks with mixed time delays. We aim at designing a state estimator to estimate the neuron states, through available output measurements, such that the dynamics of the estimation error is globally exponentially stable in the presence of mixed time delays. By using the Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional, a linear matrix inequality (LMI) approach is developed to establish sucient conditions to guarantee the existence of the state estimators. A simulation example is exploited to show the usefulness of the derived LMI-based stability conditions.
