Controlling Chaos by Synchronization

We show how synchronization {\it {\`a} la} Pecora and Carroll allows one to control a seemingly large class of dynamical systems, and, in particular, chaotic ones. The method we propose permits one to stabilize periodic orbits and equilibria, and to target them. In the case that the dynamics are described by differential equations, the method does not require one to consider a first return map.
