#### Abstract

In this work, input-to-state stability of Lur’e hyperbolic distributed *complex-valued* parameter control systems has been addressed. Using comparison principle, delay-dependent sufficient conditions for the input-to-state stability in complex Hilbert spaces are established in terms of linear operator inequalities. Finally, numerical computation
illustrates our result.

#### 1. Introduction

Up to now, the overwhelming majority of stability analysis and control theory concerning the distributed parameter systems are all limited to the case where distributed parameter is * real valued *[1, 2]*.* In this work, * complex-valued* systems that appear in such fields as quantum mechanics [3] and neural network [4] have been, for the first time, extended to the case of distributed * complex-valued* parameter systems where delay-dependent sufficient conditions for the input-to-state stability in complex Hilbert spaces are established in terms of linear operator inequality.

In this work, two new crucial lemmas used in complex Hilbert spaces will be developed and thereby our main results are given with detailed illustrations.

#### 2. Preliminaries

Quantum control system, one of the major study intensities of control system, is a typical complex-valued distributed parameter system as also complex-valued neural network. Owing to the significance of this type of distributed parameter system, in view of the typical nonlinearity of Lur'e control system, consider the following Lur'e hyperbolic distributed * complex-valued* parameter control systems:
with the Neumann boundary condition and the initial condition in complex Hilbert spaces
where is the complex-valued state, is the imaginary unit, , and
and where is an abstract nonlinear function satisfying the following sector condition:
with operators
Before proceeding, we shall introduce some notations and definitions as follows.

The set of such controls that are measurable and locally essentially bounded in complex Hilbert spaces with the supremum norm is denoted by .

For each and , we denote by the solution trajectory of systems (1) with initial state and control input .

*Definition 1. *A function is said to be a class -function if it is continuous, zero at zero and strictly increasing. A function is said to be a class -function if for each fixed , the function is a class -function and for each fixed , the function is decreasing and as .

In what follows, we will have a position to define the concept of input-to-state stability (ISS) in complex Hilbert spaces.

*Definition 2. *System (1) is called input-to-state stable (ISS) in complex Hilbert spaces if there exist a class -function and a class -function such that for any initial state and any bounded control input , it holds that
where .

As a key tool for developing the input-to-state stability in this work, some lemmas will be presented and proved as follows.

Lemma 3 (See [5]). *The following inequality holds:
*

Lemma 4 (see [5]). *The following inequality holds:
*

Lemma 5 (see comparison principle [6]). *If the function is continuous and satisfies a Lipschitz condition, then the implication
**
is true for continuous functions and .*

In the sequel, we shall give our main results using Lemmas 3, 4, and 5.

#### 3. Main Results

Theorem 6. *Given a scalar , if there exist scalars and positive definite real-valued matrices and such that the following LMIs hold:
**
where
**
Then system (1) is input-to-state stable with decay rate .*

*Proof. * Using the loop transformation technique [7], it comes to conclude that the absolute input-to-state stability of system (1) in the sector is equivalent to that of the following system:
in the sector , where abstract nonlinear function satisfies
Choose the following Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional in complex Hilbert spaces:

It follows from (18) that
where

Taking the operators

the proof is given in the following steps.*Step 1.* To prove that operator is self-adjoint positive definite operator:

Using Lemmas 3 and 4 and inequality (10), we have that
from which it follows that
In view of LMI (13), positive definiteness of operator is verified.*Step 2. *In view of Lemmas 3 and 4 and inequalities (11)-(12), direct computation can obtain that
from which it is easy to obtain, in view of LMI (14), that
which implies that the inequality holds for any satisfying (17) and hence along the solution trajectories of system (16), by virtue of Lemma 5, we have that
It follows from (27) that
And hence from Definition 2, the proof is completed.

*Remark 7. *To illustrate the utility of stability criteria established in this paper, applying Theorem 6 to the Lur'e distributed complex-valued parameter control systems (1) with coefficients , and yields that system (1) is input-to-state stable with decay rate and maximum delay .
