Abstract

Neural networks with memristors are promising candidates to overcome the limitations of traditional von Neumann machines via the implementation of novel analog and parallel computation schemes based on the in-memory computing principle. Of special importance are neural networks with generic or extended memristor models that are suited to accurately describe real memristor devices. The manuscript considers a general class of delayed neural networks where the memristors obey the relevant and widely used generic memristor model, the voltage threshold adaptive memristor (VTEAM) model. Due to physical limitations, the memristor state variables evolve in a closed compact subset of the space; therefore, the network can be mathematically described by a special class of differential inclusions named differential variational inequalities (DVIs). By using the theory of DVI, and the Lyapunov approach, the paper proves some fundamental results on convergence of solutions toward equilibrium points, a dynamic property that is extremely useful in neural network applications to content addressable memories and signal-processing in real time. The conditions for convergence, which hold in the general nonsymmetric case and for any constant delay, are given in the form of a linear matrix inequality (LMI) and can be readily checked numerically. To the authors knowledge, the obtained results are the only ones available in the literature on the convergence of neural networks with real generic memristors.
