A new Rössler-like system is constructed by the linear feedback control scheme in this paper. As well, it exhibits complex dynamical behaviors, such as bifurcation, chaos, and strange attractor. By virtue of the normal form theory, its Hopf bifurcation and stability are investigated in detail. Consequently, the stable periodic orbits are bifurcated. Furthermore, the anticontrol of Hopf circles is achieved between the new Rössler-like system and the original Rössler one via a modified projective synchronization scheme. As a result, a stable Hopf circle is created in the controlled Rössler system. The corresponding numerical simulations are presented, which agree with the theoretical analysis.
