In this paper, a class of discrete Hopfield-type neural networks with time delays is consid-ered. Sufficient and necessary conditions for global attractivity and stability of the equilibrium of the discrete Hopfield-type neural networks are given by using a class of n-dimensional nonlinear algebraic equations and M-matrix theory.
