The input passivity and output passivity are investigated for a generalized complex dynamical network,
in which the coupling may be nonlinear, time-varying, and nonsymmetric. By constructing some suitable Lyapunov
functionals, some input and output passivity criteria are derived in form of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs) for complex
dynamical network. Finally, a numerical example and its simulation are given to illustrate the efficiency of the derived
