Nonlinear Dynamic Analysis and Synchronization of FourDimensional LorenzStenflo System and Its Circuit Experimental Implementation
Abstract
Recently many chaotic systemsā circuits are designed to generate phenomenon of chaos signals. The ability to synchronize chaotic circuits opens a great number of ways to use them in application signals masking. In this paper, first a new nonlinear chaotic dynamical system had be design, analyze and build circuit. Second, using GYC, partial region stability theory is applied to adaptive control for two identical chaotic systems with uncertain parameters. The results of numerical simulation are performed to verify examples of the proposed nonlinear controllers.
1. Introduction
Chaotic systems provide a rich mechanism for signal design and generation, with potential applications to communications and signal processing. Because chaotic signals are typically broadband, noiselike, and difficult to predict, they can be used in various contexts for masking information bearing waveforms. They can also be used as modulating waveforms in spread spectrum systems.
This can be useful in many practical circumstances like securing communication channels [1], masking signals [2], spreading data sequence, or for generating random signals [3]. Of course, chaos is an unwanted phenomenon in many situations. The essential problem which is faced here is how to distinguish such motion from long transient behavior. A spectrum called Lyapunov exponents (LE) is often used as a quantifier [4] of chaotic motion or regular motion. These real numbers measure the average ratio of the exponential separation of the two neighborhood trajectories. For chaos it is necessary to have at least one positive of Lyapunov exponents; the second one represents a direction of the flow and must converge to zero. The last one must be negative with the largest absolute value, since the flow is dissipative. Circuits of nonlinear dynamic system provide an excellent tool for the study of chaotic behavior. Some of these circuits treat time as a discrete variable, employing sampleandhold subcircuits and analog multipliers to model iterated maps such as the logistic map [5, 6].
In this paper, an adaptive generalized synchronization of the fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system [7ā12] with uncertain chaotic parameters strategy by GYC partial region stability theory is proposed [13ā16]. By using the GYC partial region stability theory the Lyapunov function is a simple linear homogeneous function of states and the structure of controllers are simpler and have less simulation error because they are in lower order than that of traditional controllers design.
This paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, the fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system analyzes characteristics of nonlinear dynamic behavior, construction realization circuit of the fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system. In Section 3, adaptive generalized chaos synchronization with uncertain parameters strategy by GCY partial region stability theory is proposed. In Section 4, numerical results of adaptive generalized synchronization of the fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system with uncertain chaotic parameters using GYC partial region stability. Finally, some concluding remarks are given in Section 5.

2.1. Phase Portraits and PoincarĆ© Map
The LorenzStenflo system is described as [7, 8] where is Prandtl number, is rotation number, is Rayleigh number, and is geometric parameter.
The of LorenzStenflo system from first item changes to third item, new fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system.
Consider
The LorenzStenflo system has many dynamical behaviors that are one chaotic motion and six different periodic motions as shown in Figure 1. To have a better understanding of the fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system, we use an innovative technique to present the threedimensional phase portraits shown in Figure 2. These figures plot three dimensions phase portraits and their projection simultaneously. Thus, we can comprehend the fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system much easier.

2.2. Equilibrium Analysis
The equilibrium points of the system are shown as follows: The parameters of fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system are , , , and , so the equilibrium points become
For the equilibrium point , the Jacobian matrix of the system is The eigenvalues of the Jacobian matrix below are obvious:
Then we linearize the system about the nonzero equilibrium points and obtaine the Jacobian matrix: The eigenvalues are
By letting , the eigenvalues of the matrix at each equilibrium point can be obtained as shown in Table 1. The eigenvalues of each equilibrium point are the same. And all the equilibrium points are unstable, since at least one eigenvalue has positive real part for each equilibrium point.

2.3. Divergence Analysis
The divergence represents the volume density of the outward flux of a vector field. The divergence of a system implies whether this system dissipative or not. For the fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system, its divergence is where .
The parameters are taken as , , , and ; hence, the divergence of the system becomes So, (2) is dissipative, with an exponential contraction rate:
So, a volume element is contracted by the flow into a volume element in time. All orbits of (2) are ultimately confined to a set having zero volume and asymptotic motion settles onto an attractor. The fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system has bund system.
2.4. Bifurcation Diagram

The bifurcation diagrams of the fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system are plotted in Figure 3(a) to Figure 6(a). The parameters , , , and in (2) will be varied, respectively, for plotting the bifurcation diagrams.

2.5. Lyapunov Exponent and Lyapunov Dimension
The Lyapunov exponent may be used to measure the sensitive dependence on initial conditions. Once the Lyapunov exponent is greater than zero at specific value of parameters, it is said to be chaos, otherwise, periodic solution. The Lyapunov exponents diagrams of the fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system are shown in Figure 3(b) to Figure 6(b). In order to verify the chaotic behavior of the system, Lyapunov exponents diagrams and bifurcation diagrams can be compared together.
The Lyapunov dimension has been proposed by Frederickson et al. [17] to measure the complexity of the attractor. The relation between Lyapunov dimension and Lyapunov exponent is where is the largest Lyapunov exponent and is defined by the condition as The Lyapunov dimension diagrams are plotted in Figure 7.

2.6. Electronic Circuit Implementation
The fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system can be modeled by an electronic circuit [18ā21]. The main electronic components in the circuit are integrated amplifiers and inverting amplifiers. In this circuit simulation, we use electronic circuit simulation software named Multisim. All the parameters and initial conditions are the same as numerical simulation. But here we modify the value of capacitors to decrease the output voltage within a range from ā12.0 to 12.0, and all the state values reduced tenfold in circuit simulation. The chaotic circuit configuration diagram is shown in Figure 8, and the governing integral equation of the circuit can be written as
Components of the chaotic system circuit are chosen to be , , , , , , and . The voltage output signals of the chaotic circuit simulated in Multisim software are shown in Figure 9. In addition, the real circuit of the fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system was constructed on a breadboard shown in Figure 13. The apparatus and the components used in the circuit are listed in Table 2. The experimental setup is shown in Figure 11 and the experimental results are shown in Figure 12.

3. Adaptive Generalized Synchronization of the FourDimensional LorenzStenflo System with Uncertain Chaotic Parameters via GYC Partial Region Stability Theory Strategy
Consider the master system and the slave system where and denote the master state vector and slave state vector, respectively, is nonlinear vector functions, is uncertain chaotic parameter in , is estimates of uncertain chaotic parameter in , and is a control input vector.
Our goal is to design a controller so that the state vector of the slave system (16) asymptotically approaches the state vector of the master system (15) plus a given vector function which is either a regular or a chaotic function of time, and finally the synchronization will be accomplished in the sense that the limit of the error vector approaches zero: where . The are positive constants which make the error dynamics always happens in the first quadrant.
From (17) we have Introducing (15) and (16) in (18), we get
A Lyapunov function is chosen as a positive definite function in the first quadrant.

By using the GYC partial region stability theory, the Lyapunov function is easier to find, since the terms of first degree can be used to construct the definite Lyapunov function and the controller can be designed in lower order.

The generalized synchronization error functions are The addition of constant makes the error states always greater than zero. As Figure 15 shows, we can confirm that the error states are always greater than zero. From (29), we get the following error dynamics: where ,ā , and . The addition of constant makes the update laws always greater than zero. As Figure 17 shows, we can confirm that the update laws are always greater than zero.

Substituting (33) and (34) into (32), we obtain which is a negativedefinite function of and. The numerical simulation results are shown in Figures 14, 15, 16, and 17.

5. Conclusions
In summary, the paper has studied the nonlinear dynamical behaviors of the new chaotic attractor, including some basic dynamical properties, bifurcations, Lyapunov exponents, Lyapunov dimension, periodic motion, and routes to chaos motion. Also, the fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system based realization circuit has been constructed to implement various wing butterfly attractors. Furthermore, by electronic circuit implementation of the proposed fourdimensional LorenzStenflo system, it is shown that the chaotic attractors do physically exist. A new strategy, the GYC partial region stability theory, is proposed to achieve adaptive chaos synchronization with uncertain chaotic parameters.
