This paper treats the problem of chaos synchronization for uncertain Lorenz system via single state variable information of the master system. By the Lyapunov stability theory and adaptive technique, the derived controller is featured as follows: 1) only single state variable information of the master system is needed; 2) chaos synchronization can also be achieved even if the perturbation is occurred in some parameters of the master chaotic system. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed controllers is also illustrated by the simulations as well as rigorous mathematical proofs.
