This paper studies the control and synchronization of hyperchaotic memoristive circuits with unknown parameters using adaptive control approach. The designed adaptive nonlinear controllers globally control and synchronize two identical hyperchaotic memoristive systems evolving from different initial conditions. The adaptive approach is suitable for addressing uncertainties in systems parameters and environmental disturbances that can badly affect control and synchronization performance. The effectiveness and feasibility of the designed nonlinear controllers is verified and demonstrated numerically.
