On the chaos synchronization phenomena. (English) Zbl 0936.37010

Summary: Chaos synchronization is an important problem in the nonlinear science. However, several phenomena can be found in the synchronization systems. Here, we discuss several phenomena involved with the chaos synchronization problem. Between the involved phenomena, one can find: complete, practical and partial synchronization. A feedback controller is used to illustrate such synchronization phenomena. The feedback was recently reported and involves robustness features. Such control actions can induce one more phenomena: the almost synchronization (AS). In addition, it is shown that the AS can be found if the master and slave models are strictly different.
