In this paper, we introduce a new method for feedback controller design for the complex distributed parameter networks governed by wave equations, which ensures the stability of the closed loop system. This method is based on the uniqueness theory of ordinary differential equations and cutting-edge approach in the graph theory, but it is not a simple extension. As a realization of this idea, we investigate a bush-type wave network. The well-posedness of the closed loop system is obtained via Lax-Milgram’s lemma and semigroup theory. The validity of cutting-edge method is proved by spectral analysis approach. In particular, we give a detailed procedure of cutting-edge for the bush-type wave networks. The results show that if we impose feedback controllers, consisting of velocity and position terms, at all the boundary vertices and at most three velocity feedback controllers on the cycle, the system is asymptotically stabilized. Finally, some examples are given.
