#### Abstract

The existence and exponential stability of periodic solutions for inertial type BAM Cohen-Grossberg neural networks are investigated. First, by properly choosing variable substitution, the system is transformed to first order differential equation. Second, some sufficient conditions that ensure the existence and exponential stability of periodic solutions for the system are obtained by constructing suitable Lyapunov functional and using differential mean value theorem and inequality technique. Finally, two examples are given to illustrate the effectiveness of the results.

#### 1. Introduction

The Cohen-Grossberg-type BAM neural networks model is initially proposed by Cohen and Grossberg [1], has their promising potential for the tasks of parallel computation, associative memory, and has great ability to solve difficult optimization problems. Thus, the analysis of the dynamical behaviors of bidirectional associative memory neural networks and Cohen-Grossberg neural networks is important and necessary. In recent years, many researchers have studied the stability and other dynamical behaviors of the Cohen-Grossberg-type BAM neural networks; see [2–10].

On the other hand, some authors studied neural networks, added the inertia, and obtained some results. For example, Li et al. [11] added the inertia to a delay differential equation which can be described by and obtained obvious chaotic behavior. Liu et al. [12, 13] found chaotic behavior of the inertial two-neuron system with time through numerical simulation and gave that the system will lose its stability when the time delay is increased and will rise a quasiperiodic motion and chaos under the interaction of the periodic excitation. Wheeler and Schieve [14] added the inertia to a continuous-time Hopfield effective-neuron system which is shown to exhibit chaos. They explain that the chaos is confirmed by Lyapunov exponents, power spectra, and phase space plotsthis system is described by Babcock and Westervelt [15] studied the electronic neural networks with added inertia and found that when the neuron couplings are of an inertial nature, the dynamics can be complex, in contrast to the simpler behavior displayed when they of the standard resistor-capacitor variety. For various values of the neuron gain and the quality factor of the couplings, they find ringing about the stationary points, instability and spontaneous oscillation, intertwined basins of attraction, and chaotic response to a harmonic drive. Ge and Xu [16] considered an inertial four-neuron delayed bidirectional associative memory model. Weak resonant double Hopf bifurcations are completely analyzed in the parameter space of the coupling weight and the coupling delay by the perturbation-incremental scheme. Others, Liu et al. [17, 18], investigated the Hopf bifurcation and dynamics of an inertial two-neuron system or in a single inertial neuron mode. Zhao et al. [19] investigated the stability and the bifurcation of a class of inertial neural networks. The authors Ke and Miao [20, 21] investigated stability of equilibrium point and periodic solutions in inertial BAM neural networks with time delays, respectively. From the above, the inertia can be considered a useful tool that is added to help in the generation of chaos in neural systems. Horikawa and Kitajima [22] investigated a kinematical description of traveling waves of the oscillations in neural networks with inertia. When the inertia is below a critical value and the state of each neuron is overdamped, properties of the networks are the same as those without inertia. The duration of the transient oscillations increases with inertia, and the increasing rate of the logarithm of the duration becomes more than double. When the inertia exceeds a critical value and the state of each neuron becomes underdamped, properties of the networks qualitatively change. The periodic solution is stabilized through the pitchfork bifurcation as inertia increases. More bifurcations occur so that various periodic solutions are generated, and the stability of the periodic solutions changes alternately. Ke and Miao [23] investigated the stability of inertial Cohen-Grossberg-type neural networks with time delays. To the best of our knowledge, the question on the periodic solutions of inertial type BAM Cohen-Grossberg neural networks with time delays is still open. To provide the theoretical basis of practical application, this paper is devoted to present a sufficient criterion to ensure the existence and exponential stability of periodic solutions for inertial type BAM Cohen-Grossberg neural networks with time delays.

We consider the following inertial type BAM Cohen-Grossberg neural networks with time delays: for , , where the second derivative is called an inertial term of system (3); , are constants; and are the states of the neuron from the neural field and the th neuron from the neural field at the time , respectively; , denote the activation functions of neuron from and the neuron from , respectively; weights the strength of the neuron on the neuron at the time ; weights the strength of the neuron on the neuron at the time ; and ; , denote the external inputs on the neuron from and the neuron from at the time , respectively; and represent amplification functions; and are appropriately behaved functions such that the solutions of model (3) remain bounded.

The initial conditions of system (3) are given by where , , , and are bounded and continuous functions.

This paper is organized as follows. Some preliminaries are given in Section 2. In Section 3, the sufficient conditions are derived which ensure the existence and exponential stability of periodic solutions for inertial Cohen-Grossberg-type BAM neural networks. In Section 4, two illustrative examples are given to show the effectiveness of the proposed theory.
