I have carried out research in this topic in collaboration with Dr. J. Güémez (from the Universidad de Cantabria). We introduced a new method to synchronize chaotic systems through driving, that consists in a generalization of the well known Pecora-Carroll method, by relaxing the constraint that the driving signal is slaved in the response system.

The following papers contain our results in this field:
