complex-valued neural network model, discrete delay, distributed delay, periodic oscillation


In this paper, a complex-valued neural network model with discrete and distributed delays is investigated under the assumption that the activation function can be separated into its real and imaginary parts. Based on the mathematical analysis method, some sufficient conditions to guarantee the existence of periodic oscillatory solutions are established. Computer simulation is given to illustrate the validity of the theoretical results.
