Synchronization of fractional order chaotic systems. (English) Zbl 1197.37040

Summary: The chaotic dynamics of fractional order systems have attracted much attentions recently. In this Letter, we study the synchronization of the fractional order chaotic systems with a unidirectional linear error feedback coupling. The numerical results show that the fractional order chaotic systems can also be synchronized.
