Synchronization of nonlinearly coupled networks of Chua oscillators

The paper develops new sufficient conditions for synchronization of a network of N nonlinearly coupled Chua oscillators. The nonlinear coupling strength results in a sector, which is bounded from above and below by linear functions. The derived sufficient conditions provide a trade-off between the characteristics of the sector and the interconnection topology of the network to guarantee the synchronization of the oscillators.
