A robust control approach is presented to study the problem of Q-S synchronization between Integer-order and fractional-order chaotic systems with different dimensions. Based on Laplace transformation and stability theory of linear integer-order dynamical systems, a new control law is proposed to guarantee the Q-S synchronization between -dimensional integer-order master system and -dimensional fractional-order slave system. This paper provides further contribution to the topic of Q-S chaos synchronization between integer-order and fractional-order systems and introduces a general control scheme that can be applied to wide classes of chaotic and hyperchaotic systems. Illustrative example and numerical simulations are used to show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
