Necessary conditions for stabilisation of a complex network with quadratic performance are derived as a convex LMI representation. In addition, a centralised static output feedback controller is designed and its quadratic performance is compared with that of the decentralised one. Strict positive realness conditions on the node level dynamics allow nonlinearities/uncertainties, which satisfy sector conditions, to be considered. Two examples are used to demonstrate the efficacy of the approach. The first one is a randomly generated academic example with 10 nodes. The second example is based on a network formed from the interconnection of 20 Chua circuits. In both cases controllers are developed with 2 bounded performance using only measured output information
