The paper gives an overview on methods for the synchronization of coupled Lur’e systems. An individual Lur’e system is described by the equation \(x'=Ax + B \sigma(Cx)\), where \(x\in \mathbb R^n\), \(A\), \(B\) and \(C\) are matrices, the nonlinearity \(\sigma\) is diagonal and satisfies a sector condition. An example of a Lur’e system is Chua’s circuit. The authors consider three different coupling schemes: master-slave coupling, master-slave coupling with delay, and impulsive control.
The synchronization of master-slave systems is discussed by analysing the global asymptotic stability of the error system. Also, nonlinear \(H_\infty\)-synchronization is explained. Finally, a number of illustrations are given.
