Thus, there exists σ3 > 0 such that lim sup y3 (t ) = σ 3 (> 0) t →∞ (24) This means that the unique equilibrium point is unstable. Since all solutions of system (5) are bounded, the instability of the trivial solution implies that system (5) generates a permanent oscillation, means that system (3) has a periodic solution. 4 Numerical Simulations We use system (8) as our simulation model. In figure 1 and figure 2, the activation function is tanh(u); in figure 3 and figure 4, the activation function is arctan(u).
