Abstract

Different from the most existing results, in this paper an intermittent control scheme is designed to achieve lag synchronization of coupled hyperchaotic systems. Several sufficient conditions ensuring lag synchronization are proposed by rigorous theoretical analysis with the help of the Lyapunov stability theory. Numerical simulations are also presented to show the effectiveness and feasibility of the theoretical results.
