Synchronization of Chaotic Systems

(Invited Minisymposium)

4:15 PM-6:15 PM
Room: Atlanta 3

This minisymposium will present an overview of some recent theoretical and mathematical developments related to the synchronization of chaotic systems, particularly those involved with the concept of generalized synchronization. The speakers will examine definitions, numerical techniques, and procedures for analyzing experimental data, and connect theoretical issues with experimental observations. They will present a review of experiments on synchronization in chaotic physical systems, discuss applications of synchronization, and describe recent experiments on communication with chaotic systems.
