This letter addresses the problem of robust adaptive control for synchronization of continuous-time coupled chaotic systems, which may be subjected to disturbances. A general model is studied via two different approaches, using either state feedback or measured output feedback controls. Adaptive controllers are designed, in which a sliding mode structure is employed to increase the robustness of the closed-loop systems. When only output variables are measurable for synchronization, the adaptive controllers are designed by incorporating with a filter and using the so-called σ-modification technique. Several numerical examples are presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed chaos synchronization methods.
