Synchronization of uncertain chaotic systems via backstepping approach. (English) Zbl 1045.37011

Summary: Adaptive synchronization of two uncertain chaotic systems is presented using adaptive backstepping approach. The master system is any smooth nonlinear chaotic system, while the slave system is a nonlinear chaotic system in the feedback form. Global stability and exponential synchronization between the master and slave systems can be achieved. The proposed approach offers a systematic design procedure for adaptive synchronization of a large class of continuous-time chaotic systems in the chaos research literature. Computer simulations are provided to verify the operation of the designed synchronization scheme.
