In this paper, stochastic synchronization is studied for complex networks with delayed coupling and mixed impulses. Mixed impulses are composed of desynchronizing and synchronizing impulses. The delayed coupling term involves transmission delay and self-feedback delay. By using the average impulsive interval approach and the comparison principle, several conditions are derived to guarantee thatexponential synchronization of complex networks is achieved in the mean square. The derived conditions are closely related to the impulsive strengths, the frequency of impulse occurrence, and the coupling structure of complex networks. Numerical simulations are presented to further demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
