In science:

We demonstrate with typical examples that the conditional Lyapunov exponents (CLEs) play an important role in distinguishing between intermittent and permanent synchronizations, when the analytic conditions for chaos synchronization are not uniformly obeyed.
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
We show that intermittent synchronization can occur when CLEs are very small positive or negative values close to zero while permanent synchronization occurs when CLEs take sufficiently large negative values.
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
There is also strong evidence for the fact that for permanent synchronization the time of synchronization is relatively low while it is high for intermittent synchronization.
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
Also there are situations where one can observe intermittent or round-off induced synchronization phenomenon[7, 8, 9] where locking occurs at certain time intervals only, so that the synchronization of chaos need not be always permanent.
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
It is therefore important to understand clearly the conditions under which chaos synchronization can occur and to know how to distinguish between permanent and intermittent synchronizations exhibited by coupled chaotic systems.
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
In this paper, the analytic conditions for synchronization in coupled chaotic systems are revisited to show the difficulties in distinguishing between intermittent and permanent synchronizations which we illustrate by using simple chaotic systems.
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
We demonstrate that the conditional Lyapunov exponents (CLEs) play an important role in distinguishing between intermittent and permanent synchronization, when the analytic conditions for chaos synchronization are not uniformly obeyed.
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
II, we describe briefly the notion of chaos synchronization and the analytic conditions for synchronization which are to be uniformly obeyed as well as the existence of negative conditional Lyapunov exponents, with reference to a simple coupled system of autonomous Duffing-van der Pol (ADVP) oscillators[10, 11].
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
We also show how the time of synchronization can be used qualitatively to check the presence or absence of intermittent synchronization.
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
The criterion introduced by Fujisaka and Yamada [12, 13] for high quality synchronization requires that the largest eigenvalue of the Jacobian matrix corresponding to the flow evaluated on the synchronization manifold be negative.
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
In fact, recent studies show that in certain specific systems the observed synchronization is not always a perfect one and rather one can have an intermittent synchronization [7, 17] even when all the CLEs are negative.
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
On careful observation, by examining the synchronization error η with the addition of a small amount of noise at every integration step, one finds that perfect synchronization will occur in the coupled ADVP oscillators for ε ≥ 0.65 only.
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
The absence of the intermittent synchronization has been verified upto 2 × 106 drive cycles even with the addition of tiny noise levels showing that permanent synchronization does occur for this value of c.
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
Next we calculate the time of synchronization (ts ), that is, the time taken by the system for which the synchronization error becomes zero.
On the conditions for synchronization in unidirectionally coupled chaotic oscillators
In particular, we have pointed out that when the CLEs become very close to zero (either positive or negative) one can have intermittent synchronization while permanent synchronization does occur when the CLEs become large negative.
