Nonlinear systems involving impulse effects, appear as a natural description of observed evolution phenomena of several real world problems, for example, many biological phenomena involving thresholds, bursting rhythm models in medicine and biology, optimal control models in economics, population dynamics, etc., do exhibit impulsive effects. In a recent paper [1], both real and complex Van der Pol oscillators were introduced and shown to exhibit chaotic limit cycles and in [2] an active control and chaos synchronization was introduced. In this paper, impulsive synchronization for the real and complex Van der Pol oscillators is systematically investigated. We derive analytical expressions for impulsive control functions and show that the dynamics of error evolution is globally stable, by constructing appropriate Lyapunov functions. This means that, for a relatively large set of initial conditions, the differences between the master and slave systems vanish exponentially and synchronization is achieved. Numerical results are obtained to test the validity of the analytical expressions and illustrate the efficiency of these techniques for inducing chaos synchronization in our nonlinear oscillators.
