Abstract : This paper investigates the generalized synchronization of the multiplex networks with time-varying delay by using the auxiliary-system approach. A delay-dependent controller is first proposed by adding feedback interactions between the response and auxiliary networks. With the fixed-time synchronization theory, the controlled systems can achieve generalized synchronization where the error between the response and auxiliary networks converges exactly to zero in a finite amount of time that is independent of the initial condition. In addition, a delay-independent control law is also designed to decrease the control complexity. This work provides engineers a convenient approach to realize the harmonious coexistence of various complex systems within a fixed time interval.
