    • Abstract


      In this paper, we study the synchronization behaviour of two linearly coupled parametrically excited chaotic pendula. The stability of the synchronized state is examined using Lyapunov stability theory and linear matrix inequality (LMI); and some sufficient criteria for global asymptotic synchronization are derived from which an estimated critical coupling is determined. Numerical solutions are presented to verify the theoretical analysis. We also examined the transition to stable synchronous state and show that this corresponds to a boundary crisis of the chaotic attractor.
