Adaptive Isochronal Synchronization in Mutually Coupled Chaotic Systems


This paper studies the problem of isochronal synchronization of chaotic systems with time-delayed mutual coupling. Based on the invariance principle of differential equations, an adaptive feedback scheme is proposed for the stability of isochronal synchronization between two identical chaotic systems. Unlike the usual linear feedback, the variable feedback strength is automatically adapted to isochronally synchronize two identical chaotic systems with delay-coupled, so this scheme is analytical, and simple to implement in practice. Simulation results show that the isochronal synchronization behavior is determined by time delay.
