The adaptive pinning synchronization is investigated for complex networks with nondelayed and delayed couplings and vector-form stochastic perturbations. Two kinds of adaptive pinning controllers are designed. Based on an Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional and the stochastic stability analysis theory, several sufficient conditions are developed to guarantee the synchronization of the proposed complex networks even if partial states of the nodes are coupled. Furthermore, three examples with their numerical simulations are employed to show the effectiveness of the theoretical results.
