Synchronization of chaos in simultaneous time-frequency domain Academic Article uri icon


  • Synchronization of chaos presents many challenges for controller design. The novel notion of exerting concurrent control in the joint time-frequency domain is applied to formulate a chaos synchronization scheme that requires no linearization or heuristic trial-and-errors for nonlinear controller design. The concept is conceived through recognizing the basic attributes inherent of all chaotic systems, including the simultaneous deterioration of dynamics in both the time and frequency domains when bifurcates, nonstationarity, and sensitivity to initial conditions. Having its philosophical bases established in simultaneous time-frequency control, on-line system identification, and adaptive control, the chaos synchronization scheme incorporates multiresolution analysis, adaptive filters, and filtered-x Least Mean Square algorithm as its physical features. Without A priori knowledge of the driven system parameters, synchronization is invariably achieved regardless of the initial and forcing conditions the response system is subjected to. In addition, driving and driven trajectories are seen robustly synchronized with negligible errors in spite of the infliction of high frequency noise. 2013 Elsevier Inc.
