Recent Advances in Chaotic Systems and Synchronization: From Theory to Real World Applications is a major reference for scientists and engineers interested in applying new computational and mathematical tools for solving complex problems related to modeling, analyzing and synchronizing chaotic systems. Furthermore, it offers an array of new, real-world applications in the field. Written by eminent scientists in the field of control theory and nonlinear systems from 19 countries (Cameroon, China, Ethiopia, France, Greece, India, Italia, Iran, Japan, Mexico, and more), this book covers the latest advances in chaos theory, along with the efficiency of novel synchronization approaches. Readers will find the fundamentals and algorithms related to the analysis and synchronization of chaotic systems, along with key applications, including electronic design, text and image encryption, and robot control and tracking.
