In drive-response complex-variable systems, projective synchronization with respect to a real number, real matrix, or even real function means that drive-response systems evolve simultaneously along the same or inverse direction in a complex plane. However, in many practical situations, the drive-response systems may evolve in different directions with a constant intersection angle. Therefore, this paper investigates projective synchronization in drive-response networks of coupled complex-variable chaotic systems with respect to complex numbers, called complex projective synchronization (CPS). The adaptive feedback control method is adopted first to achieve CPS in a general drive-response network. For a special class of drive-response networks, the CPS is achieved via pinning control. Furthermore, a universal pinning control scheme is proposed via the adaptive coupling strength method, several simple and useful criteria for CPS are obtained, and all results are illustrated by numerical examples.
