In this paper, the exponential stability of nonlinear discrete-time systems is studied. A novel notion of nonlinear spectral radius is defined. Under the assumption of Lipschitz continuity for the activation function, the developed approach is applied to stability analysis of discrete-time neural networks. A series of sufficient conditions for global exponential stability of the neural networks are established and an estimate of the exponential decay rate is also derived for each case.
