We consider networks with a general topology which consist of nonlinear systems that interact via diffusive coupling with constant time-delays. Using the notion of (semi-)passivity we prove under some mild assumptions that passive systems will synchronize and that the solutions of interconnected semi-passive systems will be bounded. Furthermore we prove that identical strictly semi-passive systems, whose internal dynamics are stable, always will synchronize given that the coupling between the… CONTINUE READING
