Abstract : "This paper introduced a new class of Complex Dynamic Networks (CDNs) with hybrid Time-Varying
Delay (TVD) and Non-Time-Varying Delay (NTVD) nodes. Exponential Synchronization (ES) and Generalized
Synchronization(GS) problems are studied by using a novel coupling Intermittent Periodically Adaptive Pinning
Control (IPAPC) with these CDNs. Meanwhile, IPAPC has new characteristics with three switched intervals in
every period. Based on IPAPC method, Kronecker product rules and Lyapunov Stability Theory (LST), necessary
and sufficient conditions for ES and GS with IPAPC criteria of such CDNs have been deduced theoretically. Moreover,
to verify the practicability and effectiveness of the proposed theoretical results and method, Nearest-Neighbor
Network (NNN) and Barabási-Albert Network (BAN) consisting of coupled delay and non-delayed Lee chaotic
attractor are finally given as the examples."
