This paper investigates the robust synchronization problem for a class of fractional-order hyperchaotic systems subjected to unmatched uncertainties and input nonlinearity. Based on the sliding mode control (SMC) technique, this approach only uses a single controller to achieve chaos synchronization, which reduces the cost and complexity for synchronization control implementation. As expected, the error states can be driven to zero or into predictable bounds for matched and unmatched perturbations, respectively, even with input nonlinearity.
