l Dynamics
of a delayed network of two neurons with both selffeedback and interaction
described by an allornone threshold function. l Global
exponential stability and global exponentially convergent rate of Hopfield
neural networks with general activation functions. Main mathematics tools
involve topological degree, matrix theory, and inequality analysis techniques. l
Stability and bifurcation of a ring of
identical neurons with delayed coupling. Main mathematics tools involve the
standard Hopf bifurcation theory, normal form, center manifold theory, Floquet theory,
monotone dynamical systems theory, the symmetric bifurcation theory of delay
differential equations, and representation theory of standard dihedral groups. l
Equivariant normal form theory and equivarant bifurcation theory for functional differential equations. Conference and
