The robust synchronization of hyperchaotic systems with uncertainties and external disturbances is investigated. Based on the Lyapunov stability theory, the appropriate adaptive controllers and parameter update laws are designed to achieve the synchronization of uncertain hyperchaotic systems. The robust synchronization of two hyperchaotic Chen systems is taken as an example to verify the feasibility of the presented schemes. The size of the subcontroller gain’s influences on the convergence speed is discussed. Finally, numerical simulations are given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed synchronization schemes.
