This paper investigates the global exponential synchronization and quasi-synchronization of inertial memristive neural networks with time-varying delays. By using a variable transmission, the original second-order system can be transformed into first-order differential system. Then, two types of drive-response systems of inertial memristive neural networks are studied, one is the system with parameter mismatch, the other is the system with matched parameters. By constructing Lyapunov functional and designing feedback controllers, several sufficient conditions are derived respectively for the synchronization of these two types of drive-response systems. Finally, corresponding simulation results are given to show the effectiveness of the proposed method derived in this paper.
