The problems of synchronization and pinning control for general time-delay complex dynamical networks are investigated. In this paper, less conservative criterions for both continuous-time and discrete-time complex dynamical networks with time delay are obtained. Pinning control strategies are respectively, designed to make these complex dynamical networks synchronized. Moreover, the problems of designing controllers are converted into solving optimal problems of a series of linear matrix inequalities, which reduces the computation complexity. Finally, numerical simulations verify the effectiveness of our methodology. (C) 2009 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of the present paper was to examine the disposition of individuals in Hunan, China who are found not criminally responsible due to a mental disorder or defect. METHOD: Self-developed questionnaires were mailed to the family members of 240 patients who had received forensic psychiatric evaluations at the forensic psychiatric assessment center of Central South University, between 2001 and 2002. RESULTS: One hundred and seventy questionnaires were fully completed and returned by the patients' family members. According to the answers, 64.1% (109 patients) were found not criminally responsible due to a mental disorder or defect. In 87.6% of the cases, a judgement of guilty was in agreement with the psychiatrist's recommendation concerning criminal responsibility. A total of 61.8% of the patients found not guilty were discharged to their families and did not receive any further psychiatric treatment. CONCLUSION: In most cases, judicial decisions are consistent with a psychiatrist's opinion of criminal responsibility due to a mental disorder or defect. After such adjudication, further psychiatric treatment is often neglected due to the lack of resources and information. Hunan, China must make a continued investment into the availability and quality of outpatient mental health treatment for forensic patients after they have been discharged.
