Subject Areas: Chaotic System, Anti-Synchronization, Adaptive Control
Since the pioneering work by Pecora and Carroll  , chaos synchronization, a very active topic in nonlinear science, has received increasing attention. The concept of synchronization has been extended in scope, for example to generalized synchronization  -  , phase synchronization  , lag synchronization  , and even anti-phase synchronization (APS)  -  . APS can also be interpreted as anti-synchronization (AS), which is a phenomenon in which the state variables of the synchronized systems have the same amplitude as but opposite signs to those of the driving system. Therefore, the sums of two signals are expected to converge to zero when AS appears. Recently, Singh and Roy generalized active control to AS for two systems  . However, it seems that there are fewer previous results on AS between two different systems with unknown parameters using adaptive control. In this paper, we will focus on the AS of two different systems. Adaptive control methods will be employed; a sufficient condition for anti-synchronization is derived rigorously. Numerical simulations on Chen system and Genesio system are performed, which demonstrate the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposed control technique.
The layout of the rest of the paper is as follows. Section 2 describes the systems and their mathematical models; in Section 3, adaptive anti-synchronization between Chen and Genesio systems is presented; numerical simulation results are given for illustration and verification. Finally, conclusions are drawn in Section 4.
2. Systems Description and Mathematical Models
Consider nonlinear chaotic system as follows.
where are differentiable functions, the first equation in (1) is the drive system, and the second one is the response system, is the control input. Let be the anti-synchro- nization error, our goal is to design controllers such that the trajectory of the response system with initial conditions can asymptotically approach the drive system with initial conditions reversely and implement anti-synchronization finally, in the sense that
where is the Euclidean norm.
The Genesio system, proposed by Genesio and Tesi  , is one of paradigms of chaos since it captures many features of chaotic systems. It includes a simple square part and three simple ordinary differential equations that depend on three negative real parameters. The dynamic equations of the system is given by
where are state variables, when system (2) is chaotic.
Chen system is described by
When, system (3) is chaotic.
In the next section, we will study chaos anti-synchronization between Chen and Genesio systems with known or unknown parameters using adaptive control.
3. Adaptive Anti-Synchronization between Chen and Genesio System with Unknown Parameters
We assume that Genesio system (2) is the drive system, and the controlled Chen system (4) is the response system.
We add (2) from Equation (4) and yield
Our goal is to find the proper controllers and parameter update laws, such that system (4) globally anti-synchronizes system (2) asymptotically. i.e.
Theorem: If the controllers are chosen as
and the update laws of parameters are chosen as
Then system (4) globally anti-synchronizes system (2) asymptotically, where are positive constants, are estimate values of, respectively.
Proof: Applying control laws (6) to (5) yields the resulting error dynamics as follows.
Consider the following Lyapunov function
The time derivative of V along the solution of error dynamical system (8) gives that
Since is positive definite and is negative semi-definite in the neighborhood of zero solution of system (5), it follows that and from (8), we have since, we obtain
where is the minimal eigenvalue of the positive definite matrix P. Thus, by Barbalat’s lemma, we have Therefore, response system (4) can globally anti-synchronize drive system (2) asymptotically. This completes the proof.
In simulation, Fourth order Runge-Kutta integration method is used to solve the systems of differential Equations (2) and (4) with the controllers (6) and the parameter update laws (7). We select the parameters of Genesio system as and the parameters of Chen system as respectively, and The initial values of drive and response systems are
and respectively, while the initial errors of system (5) are and the initial values of estimate parameters are,
The anti-synchronization errors between Chen system and Genesio system are shown in Figure 1, the estimate values of parameters and are shown in Figure 2 and Figure 3, respectively. Obviously, the anti-synchronization errors converge asymptotically to zero and two different systems are indeed achieved chaos anti-synchronization. Furthermore, the estimates of parameter converge to their true values.
