The paper analyzes some fundamental properties of the solution semiflow of nonsymmetric cooperative standard (S) cellular neural networks (CNNs) with a typical three-segment piecewise-linear (pwl) neuron activation. Two relevant subclasses of SCNNs, corresponding to one-dimensional circular SCNNs with two-sided or single-sided positive interconnections between nearest neighboring neurons only, are considered. For these subclasses it is shown that the associated solution semiflow satisfies the fundamental properties of the CONVERGENCE CRITERION, the NONORDERING OF LIMIT SETS and the LIMIT SET DICHOTOMY, and that this is true although the semiflow is not eventually strongly monotone. As a consequence such CNNs are almost convergent, i.e., almost all solutions converge toward an equilibrium point as time tends to infinity. To the authors' knowledge the paper is the first rigorous investigation on the geometry of limit sets and convergence properties of cooperative SCNNs with a pwl neuron activation. All available convergence results in the literature indeed concern a modified cooperative CNN model where the original pwl activation of the SCNN model is replaced by a continuously differentiable strictly increasing sigmoid function. The main results in the paper are established by conducting a deep analysis of the properties of the omega-limit sets of the solution semiflow defined by the considered subclasses of SCNNs. In doing so the paper exploits and extends some mathematical tools for monotone systems in order that they can be applied to pwl vector fields that govern the dynamics of SCNNs. By using some transformations and referring to specific examples it is also shown that the treatment in the paper can be extended to other subclasses of SCNNs.
