We aim to study robust impulsive synchronization problem for uncertain discrete dynamical networks. For the discrete dynamical networks with unknown but bounded network coupling, we will design some robust impulsive controllers which ensure that the state of a discrete dynamical network asymptotically synchronize with an arbitrarily assigned state of an isolate node of the network. Three representative examples are also worked through to illustrate our results.
