Chaos suppression in fractional order systems using state-dependent noise
Noise play a creative role in the evolution of periodic and complex systems which are essential for continuous performance of the system. The interaction of noise generated within one component of a chaotic system with other component in a linear or nonlinear interaction is crucial for system performance and stability. These types of noise are inherent, natural and insidious. This study investigates the effect of state-dependent noise on the bifurcation of two chaotic systems. Circuit realization of the systems were implemented. Numerical simulations were carried out to investigate the influence of state dependent noise on the bifurcation structure of the Chen and Arneodo–Coullet fractional order chaotic systems. Results obtained showed that state dependent noise inhibit the period doubling cascade bifurcation structure of the two systems. These results pose serious challenges to system reliability of chaotic systems in control design, secure communication and power systems.

Fractional order models are best suited to capture the memory effects in mathematical models . The lack of appropriate methods of solution has made fractional order systems unattractive to scientists. However, in recent times, adequate mathematical representation and solutions has created a resurgence and renewed interest in the subject of fractional order. The order of fractional derivative is an index of memory  and as stable as their integer order counterpart . Due to their relevance, fractional order models have been considered in finance , psychology  and electronic systems .
Noise is ubiquitous and inherent in nature. The role of noise in a system depends on how it was introduced and intended function of the system. Noise is desirable in some systems while it is unwanted in others. The threshold of chaos can be increased or reduced through noise perturbations  and synchronization of chaotic oscillators with noise . Chaos suppression due to noise has been reported in the Duffing oscillator  , parametrically driven Lorenz system , Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction  and logistic map . Dennis et al.  suggests that noise cannot induce chaos. However, the introduction of noise has also been found to enhance synchronization of chaotic systems [14, 15] and induce chaos in systems [16, 17, 18]. Gao  showed that noise can induced chaos when the noise level is within a narrow range. It has been posited that real life neurons are robust to noise .
The possibility of generating noise from chaotic systems has been considered. The perceived similarity between chaos and random numbers make chaos a suitable candidate to realize truly random numbers. Murch and Bates  proposed a mechanism for generating coloured noise through by hierarchies of nonlinear recursive loops. This was extended to study the performance of random noise generated by bounded and unbounded chaos with a gaussian noise . A chaotic digital phase-locked loop system has also been developed to generate pseudo-random noise . The successful generation of large scale chaos random number generator was implemented using Duffing oscillators . Random numbers generated from chaotic sequences have been employed in video encryption . By using shifters and multiplexers, the phase space from the Lorenz and Lu systems have been utilized to generate random numbers on Field programmable gate arrays .
The role of different types of noise has been investigated on integer and discrete chaotic systems. There is the need to understand the dynamic influence of noise on the memory effect of fractional order chaotic systems. Since memory is an intrinsic property of a system, it is intuitive to understudy the interaction of noise generated within the system states and the system itself. Previous researches have considered the role of external noise on the dynamics of chaotic system. Although external noises play a significant role, the impact of intrinsic noise cannot be ruled out. In our approach, we aim to generate noise from within a chaotic system and feed the same noise back into the system. This approach is different from the other approaches which uses external noise or generate noise from a chaotic system but do not consider its effect as feedback noise. This research is motivated by the need to understand noise generation by fractional order systems and the influence of the generated noise as a feedback into the system. The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of state-dependent noise in a class of fractional order chaotic systems. The potential of chaotic system in secure communication makes this study important. It will provide information to systems designer on the role of noise in the system, as well as, the impact of internally generated noise on system performance. In Sect. 2, the concept and definition of fractional order systems, state dependent noise, as well as, systems to be considered are introduced. In Sect. 3, we discuss the result of our analysis while our conclusions are presented.

3 Results and discussion
Serletis et al.  used extrinsic additive noise to show that stochastic noise changes the dynamics of low dimension chaotic systems. In this work, we have shown that intrinsic additive noise can also shift bifurcation points and produce noise-induced transitions. The impact of external stochastic noise on the phase space of Chen system has been reported . The distortions reported were found to be distinctly different from what was obtained in this report. In this report, the phase space was found to be distorted while Bashkirtseva et al.  showed that small extrinsic noise perturbation were found to create a stochastic attractor. It was reported in  that delayed self-controlling feedback noise caused stabilization of the system, however, this was not obvious in our analysis.
In this work, we have considered the effect of state dependent noise on the Chen and Arneodo–Coullet chaotic systems. The impact of external noise on the dynamics of chaotic systems have been investigated extensively. The role of internally generated noise fed back into the system has not been given much attention. The noise considered are dependent on feedback from other states of the system as against coloured noise. Hence, they can be regarded as intrinsic noise. The overall effect of state-dependent noise on the system studied is the suppression of chaos. The suppression of chaos by the intrinsic noise considered in this work was done by distortion of the route to chaos and phase space. In the two systems considered, the feedback noise from components of the system was found to break the period-doubling route to chaos. Thus, this approach will prove useful in the understanding of nonlinearity in systems susceptible to interference from other states of the system. The noise proposed in this study can be used as a convenient way to control chaos in a system using the system variables. Further exploration can be made into the role of intrinsic feedback noise, as considered in this work, on the performance of chaotic systems in secure communication implementation. It will also be interesting to investigate stochastic and vibrational resonance in systems with intrinsic chaotic noise .
