Abstract : "Up to now, the research topic about fractional-order complex networks is mainly focused on the synchronization. In this paper, synchronization for a class of fractional-order linear complex networks is realized via impulsive control. The general expression of solution for a fractional-order impulsive error system is deduced by utilizing iteration algorithm. Some inequality conditions are established to guarantee that the largest Lyapunov exponents of each node are negative, which means that the corresponding error system is asymptotic stable and
synchronization is realized. It is the first time to achieve the synchronization of fractional-order systems based on the largest Lyapunov exponent. Finally, examples are present to illustrate the validity and effectiveness of proposed
conclusions. Numerical simulations also indicate that the fractional-order parameter has a great influence on the largest Lyapunov exponent, although it is not reflected in the theoretical analysis."
