# Existence and Global Uniform Asymptotic Stability of Pseudo Almost Periodic Solutions for Cohen-Grossberg Neural Networks with Discrete and Distributed Delays

**Academic Editor:**Zhichun Yang

#### Abstract

This paper studies the existence and uniform asymptotic stability of pseudo almost periodic solutions to Cohen-Grossberg neural networks (CGNNs) with discrete and distributed delays by applying Schauder fixed point theorem and constructing a suitable Lyapunov functional. An example is given to show the effectiveness of the main results.

#### 1. Introduction

Since the model of Cohen-Grossberg neural networks (CGNNs) was first proposed and studied by Cohen and Grossberg [1], it has been widely investigated because of the theoretical interest as well as the application considerations such as optimization, pattern recognition, automatic control, image processing, and associative memories. In recent years, there are many important results on dynamic behaviors of CGNNs. For instance, many sufficient conditions have been successively obtained to ensure the existence and stability of equilibrium point of CGNNs [1–10]. Some attractivity and asymptotic stability results have also been published [3, 11–14]. Many authors specially devote themselves to study the existence and global exponential stability of periodic or almost periodic solution to CGNNs [15–30]; for the other dynamic properties, see also the literatures [31, 32]. However, to the best of our knowledge, few authors have discussed the existence and the global uniform asymptotic stability of pseudo almost periodic solutions to CGNNs.

In this paper, we discuss the existence and the global uniform asymptotic stability of pseudo almost periodic solutions to the following CGNNs: where , , , , are pseudo almost periodic functions.

The organization of this paper is as follows. In Section 2, some basic definitions, marks, and lemmas are given. In Section 3, some results are given to ascertain the existence of pseudo almost periodic solution to the system (1) by applying Schauder fixed point theorem. In Section 4, the global uniform asymptotic stability of pseudo almost periodic solutions to the system (1) is obtained. In Section 5, an example is provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the main results. In Section 6, the final conclusions are drawn.

#### 2. Preliminaries

In this section, some basic definitions, lemmas, and assumptions are introduced.

*Definition 1 (see [33]). * is said to be Bohr almost periodic if, for all , set
is relatively dense. Namely, for any there exists a number such that every interval contains at least one point of such that for every . The collection of those functions is denoted by . Define the class of functions as follows:

*Definition 2 (see [34]). *A function is called pseudo almost periodic if it can be expressed as
where and . The collection of such functions will be denoted by .

*Remark 3. *From the definitions above, we have .

Lemma 4 (see [3]). *PAP is a Banach space with the norm .*

Lemma 5 (see [19]). *If , where is an open set in or , denote continuous function class. Suppose satisfies the Lipschitz condition
**
if , then the composite function . Suppose ; then the equation

is called lagging-type almost periodic differential equation. The following system (7) is defined as the product systems of (6):
*

Lemma 6. *Suppose ; then for all .*

*Proof. *From Definition 2 of the , we have , where and . Clearly ; it is easy to know and
This indicates that . So .

*Definition 7. *Assume that is a pseudo almost periodic solution of system (1). By a translation transformation , system (1) is transformed into a new system. If the zero solution of new system is globally uniformly asymptotically stable, then the pseudo almost periodic solution of system (1) is said to be globally uniformly asymptotically stable. As for the uniform asymptotical stability, see [35].

Lemma 8 (see [33]). *There is a continuous functional for , , , such that* *;

Throughout this paper, we make the following assumptions. : Functions are continuous bounded and there are positive constants such that : Functions and there exist positive constants such that : , , , , are pseudo almost periodic functions: where , . : Delay kernel functions are piecewise continuous and integrable : Functions satisfy the Lipschitz condition; namely, there exist nonnegative constants , , and such that

#### 3. The Existence of Pseudo Almost Periodic Solution

In this section, we study the existence of pseudo almost periodic solution to system (1).

It follows from that the antiderivative of exists. Then we choose an antiderivative of that satisfies . Clearly, . Because , is increasing about and the inverse function of is existential, continuous, and differential. Then . Denote ; we get . Substituting these equations into system (1), we get the following equivalent equation: From (14), we get , where . Putting it into (14), we obtain Thus, system (1) has at least one pseudo almost periodic solution if and only if the system (15) has at least one pseudo almost periodic solution. So we only consider the pseudo almost periodic solution of system (15). By Lagrange theorem, we have Again by , we get Combined with , we have : .

In order to prove the main results, we give the following lemma.

Lemma 9. *Suppose that assumptions hold and if , then
*

*Proof. *From Definition 2, we have ; then

Firstly, we prove . For any , there exists a number such that every interval contains at least one point of such that for every . Therefore, from , we obtain
so that .

And then we show that because
Thus . So .

Theorem 10. *Suppose that and hold; if
**
then the system (1) has at least one pseudo almost periodic solution.*

*Proof. *For all , we define the nonlinear operator , where
Now, we prove that
Let

For , conditions ()–(), Lemmas 5, 6, and 9, and the composition theorem in [16], we will get , .

From Definition 2, we have , . Where and . Then
where and .

Because , for any , there exists a number such that every interval contains at least one point of such that for every and . Hence, we obtain
so that .

And because
thus . So . Therefore .

From Lemma 9, is a Banach space. If
then there exists a sufficiently large such that
where
We choose a closed subset

Firstly, we prove that ; that is, .

From (29)–(32) and for , we get

Secondly, we prove that the mapping is completely continuous.

By the continuity of the function , , , for any , there is such that
Let , , and ; then and ; then, for any , we get . So, we have
Thus
Therefore, is continuous.

Thirdly, we show that is compact.

Let , where to be any constant. We denote . Then we have
Hence, is uniformly bounded. Then, from (23), we get
where
Therefore, is equicontinuous. By the Ascoli-Arzela theorem, the operator is compact; then it is completely continuous. By the Schauder fixed point theorem, the system (1) has at least one pseudo almost periodic solution.

#### 4. The Global Uniform Asymptotic Stability of Pseudo Almost Periodic Solution

In order to discuss the global uniform asymptotic stability of pseudo almost periodic solution to system (1), we give the following assumptions: : delay functions satisfy that , ; : , where .

Theorem 11. *Assume that ()–() and ()-() hold; then the pseudo almost periodic solution of system (1) is globally uniformly asymptotically stable.*

*Proof. *The product system of the system (1) is
In order to apply the conclusion of Lemma 8, we construct a Lyapunov functional about product system (40)
where

Let and . For product system , we receive
where and . Let and ; we easily know it satisfies condition of Lemma 8. Then we obtain
We also know that it satisfies condition of Lemma 8.

Calculating the upright derivative of , , and along the system (40), respectively, and noting that , we have
Combining (45) and assumptions and , we get
From assumption , we have .

By Lemma 8, the pseudo almost periodic solutions of system (1) are globally uniformly asymptotically stable. This completes the proof.
