Abstract : A synchronized nonlinear dynamical physical system is composed of first and second parts which produce output responses synchronized with respect to each other. The first part comprises a plurality of interconnected components producing intermediated responses at the junctions between the components; and the second part corresponds to a subpart of the first part selected so that the sub-Lyapunov exponents of the second part are all negative when the second part is driven by a selected at least one intermediate response applied at the at least one component junction in the second part corresponding to the at least one component junction in the first part at which the selected at least one intermediate response is produced.
