Master-Slave Synchronization and the Lorenz Equations

        Since the seminal remark by Pecora and Carroll that one can synchronize chaotic systems, the main example in the related literature has been the Lorenz equations. Yet this literature contains a mixture of true and false, and of justified and unsubstantiated claims about the synchronization properties of the Lorenz equations. In this note we clarify some of the confusion.
