—This paper investigates complete synchronization of unidirectionally and adaptively coupled systems with discrete and distributed time delays. Instead of the conventional hypothesis of a uniform Lipschitz condition on the system's vector fields, only a local Lipschitz condition is adopted. It is proved that the local complete synchronization can be(More)
We articulate an adaptive and reference-free framework based on the principle of random switching to detect and control unstable steady states in high-dimensional nonlinear dynamical systems, without requiring any a priori information about the system or about the target steady state. Starting from an arbitrary initial condition, a proper control signal(More)
Detecting unstable periodic orbits (UPOs) in chaotic systems based solely on time series is a fundamental but extremely challenging problem in nonlinear dynamics. Previous approaches were applicable but mostly for low-dimensional chaotic systems. We develop a framework, integrating approximation theory of neural networks and adaptive synchronization, to(More)
This paper develops an adaptive synchronization strategy to identify both discrete and distributed time delays in nonlinear dynamical models. In contrast with adaptive techniques for parameter estimation in the literature, the adaptive strategy developed here for time-delay identification invites more precise results that have physical and dynamical(More)
Finding unstable periodic orbits (UPOs) is always a challenging demand in biophysics and computational biology, which needs efficient algorithms. To meet this need, an approach to locating unstable periodic orbits in chaotic dynamical system is presented. The uniqueness of the approach lies in the introduction of adaptive rules for both feedback gain and(More)
