J. Comput. Nonlinear Dynam 8(3), 031005 (Nov 28, 2012) (7 pages) Paper No: CND-12-1089; doi: 10.1115/1.4007910 History: Received June 11, 2012; Revised October 07, 2012

This paper proposes a three-dimensional autonomous chaotic system which displays some interest dynamical behaviors such as invariable Lyapunov exponent spectrums and controllable signal amplitude. The corresponding fractional version of the proposed system is obtained. A single state controller for synchronization of this fractional-order chaotic system is developed based on the techniques of sliding mode control and adaptive control. Numerical simulations are provided to demonstrate the feasibility of the presented synchronization method.
