This paper proposes a new neural network H∞ synchronization (NNHS) scheme for unknown chaotic systems. In the proposed framework, a dynamic neural network is constructed as an alternative to approximate the chaotic system. Based on this neural network and linear matrix inequality (LMI) formulation, the NNHS controller and the learning law are presented to reduce the effect of disturbance to an H∞ norm constraint. It is shown that finding the NNHS controller and the learning law can be transformed into the LMI problem and solved using the convex optimization method. A numerical example is presented to demonstrate the validity of the proposed NNHS scheme.
