Lag quasisynchronization of coupled delayed systems with parameter mismatch by periodically intermittent control


This paper further investigates the lag synchronization of coupled delayed systems with parameter mismatch. Different from the most existing results, we formulate the intermittent control system that governs the dynamics of the synchronization error. As a result of parameter mismatch, complete lag synchronization cannot be achieved. In this paper, a lag quasisynchronization scheme is proposed to ensure that coupled systems are in a state of lag synchronization with an error level. We estimate the error bound of lag synchronization by rigorously theoretical analysis. Numerical simulations are presented to verify the theoretical results.
