Scaling-Base Drive Function Projective Synchronization between Different Fractional-Order Chaotic Systems
A new function projective synchronization scheme between different fractional-order chaotic systems, called scaling-base drive function projective synchronization (SBDFPS), is discussed. In this SBDFPS scheme, one fractional-order chaotic system is chosen as scaling drive system, one fractional-order chaotic system is chosen as base drive systems, and another fractional-order chaotic system is chosen as response system. The SBDFPS technique scheme is based on the stability theory of nonlinear fractional-order systems, and the synchronization technique is theoretically rigorous. Numerical experiments are presented and show the effectiveness of the SBDFPS scheme.
In the past twenty years, many synchronization schemes for chaotic systems have been presented [1–9]. However, the function projective synchronization (FPS) scheme for chaotic systems is extensively considered due to its potential applications in secure communication. Because the drive and response systems could be synchronized with a scaling function matrix in FPS, the unpredictability of the scaling function matrix in FPS scheme can enhance the security in secure communication. In FPS, only two chaotic systems (one drive system and one response system) are considered, and the function matrix comes from one drive system. Therefore, more than one drive system (two or three drive systems or four drive systems, etc.) and one response system in FPS, and the scaling function matrix coming from multidrive systems, are general case. Moreover, multidrive systems in FPS scheme can additionally enhance the security of communication; this is due to the fact that the transmitted signals can be split into several parts, and each part can be loaded in different drive systems, or the transmitted signals can be divided time into different intervals, and the signals in different intervals can be loaded in different drive systems .
Motivated by the previous part, we demonstrated a new function projective synchronization scheme between different fractional-order chaotic systems in this paper, which is called scaling-base drive function projective synchronization (briefly denoted by SBDFPS). In SBDFPS scheme, there are two drive systems, which are called the scaling drive system and the base drive system, respectively. The proposed SBDFPS technique is based on the stability theory of nonlinear fractional-order systems and is theoretically rigorous. The SBDFPS between two-driver chaotic systems (fractional-order Lorenz chaotic system as scaling drive system and fractional-order Lu chaotic system as base drive system) and one response chaotic system (fractional-order Chen chaotic system) is achieved. Numerical experiments show the effectiveness of the SBDFPS scheme.
This paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, the SBDFPS scheme between different fractional-order chaotic systems is demonstrated. In Section 3, some examples are considered and show the effectiveness of the SBDFPS scheme. Finally, the conclusion ends the paper in Section 4.
2. The Scaling-Base Drive Function Projective Synchronization (SBDFPS) between Different Fractional-Order Chaotic Systems
The Caputo definition of the fractional derivative is used, which is where is called the Caputo operator, is the first integer which is not less than , and is the -order derivative for ; that is, .
Now, the SBDFPS scheme between different fractional-order chaotic systems will be established. Consider the fractional-order scaling drive chaotic system and base drive chaotic system and one response chaotic system described by systems (2), (3), and (4), respectively as follows: where and are fractional-order. , , and are state vectors of fractional-order chaotic systems (2)–(4). and are differential nonlinear functions. is a vector controller and will be designed.
Definition 1. Give the scaling drive system (2), the base drive systems (3), and the response system (4). It is said to scaling-base drive function projective synchronization (SBDFPS) if there exist real nonzero constant matrix and nonzero scaling function matrix such that where represents the Euclidean norm.
Remark 2. If , , then the SBDFPS scheme will be turned into FPS. If , then the SBDFPS scheme will be turned into a chaos control problem.
Now, choose vector controller as where feedback controller will be designed later.
In this paper, we assume that where . In fact, many fractional-order chaotic (hyperchaotic) systems satisfy this assumption.
By (10), the SBDFPS between the scaling drive system (2), base drive systems (3), and response system (4) is turned into the following problem: select suitable such that the system (10) asymptotically converges to zero.
Theorem 4. Select suitable matrix such that satisfy the following conditions: (1) (2) (all are not equal to zero),
where are the entries of . Then the SBDFPS between the scaling drive system (2), base drive systems (3), and response system (4) can be reached.
Proof. Let be one of the eigenvalues of matrix and the corresponding nonzero eigenvector. So, we have
By (11), taking conjugate transpose on both sides of (11), one can obtain where denotes conjugate transpose.
Now, (12) multiplied right by plus (11) multiplied left by . Thus
Using , so
Because (all are not equal to zero), we have
According to the stability theorem for nonlinear fractional-order systems [9–11], (18) indicates that the equilibrium point in system (10) is asymptotically stable; that is,
Equation (19) demonstrates that the SBDFPS between the scaling drive system (2), base drive systems (3), and response system (4) can be received. The proof is completed.
3. Illustrative Examples
To illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed synchronization scheme, some examples are given and the numerical simulations are yielded.
First, the improved version of Adams-Bashforth-Moulton numerical algorithm  for fractional-order nonlinear systems is introduced. Now, consider the nonlinear fractional-order system with initial condition . Let and (). Then, nonlinear fractional-order system (20) is discretized as follows: where The error of this approximation is The fractional-order Lorenz chaotic system  is depicted as
The fractional-order Chen chaotic system  is
Now, the fractional-order Lorenz chaotic system (25) is selected as the scaling drive system, the fractional-order Lu chaotic system (26) is selected as the base drive system, and the fractional-order Chen chaotic system (27) is selected as response system. Our goal is to realize the SBDFPS between the scaling drive system (25), the base drive system (26), and response system (27).
According to the results in Section 2, we derive that where, are the elements of matrix . are real nonzero constant matrix.
Now, we select matrix as follows:
According to Theorem 4, we can obtain the following:
This result means that
For example, let
The initial conditions are , , and , respectively. The numerical experiments are illustrated in Figure 4.
In this paper, the scaling-base drive function projective synchronization (SBDFPS) is presented. The SBDFPS scheme is different from the FPS scheme because the scaling function matrix comes from more than one chaotic system (the scaling drive system and the base drive system). The SBDFPS between the fractional-order Lorenz chaotic system (scaling drive system), the fractional-order Lu chaotic system (base drive system), and the fractional-order Chen chaotic system (response system) is taken for example. Numerical experiments show the effectiveness of the SBDFPS scheme.
