Synchronization in chaotic systems has become an active area of research since the pioneering work of Pecora and Carroll. Most existing works, however, rely on a passive approach: A coupling between chaotic systems is necessary for their mutual synchronization. We describe here a feedback approach for synchronizing chaotic systems that is applicable in high dimensions. We show how two chaotic systems can be synchronized by applying small feedback perturbations to one of them. We detail our strategy to design the control based on the pole-placement method, and give numerical examples.
