This paper presents an active backstepping design method for synchronization and anti-synchronization of two identical hyperchaotic Chen systems. The proposed control method, combining backstepping design and active control approach, extends the application of backstepping technique in chaos control. Based on this method, different combinations of controllers can be designed to meet the needs of different applications. Numerical simulations are shown to verify the results.


Key words: Synchronization, anti-synchronization, hyperchaotic system, active backstepping design.
