This paper investigates the fixed-time synchronization problem of complex networks.A novel switching controller is proposed to solve the problem.The designed controller in this paper only needs intermittently to pin a few of nodes,which could reduce the control time and save the system's energy.Moreover,compared with the existing control methods for the fixed-time synchronization,the novel controller does not use the sign function,which could avoid the chattering behaviors.By constructing a Lyapunov function and designing a comparison system,some sufficient conditions are obtained to achieve the fixed-time synchronization.Finally,the numerical simulations could verify the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposed control approaches.
