This paper introduces a modified master-slave synchronization scheme for dynamical systems. In contrast to the standard configuration, the slave system does not receive any driving signal from the master, but rather the interaction is through a linear dynamical system. The key feature of the proposed coupling scheme is that it induces synchronization in certain systems that cannot be synchronized when using the classical static interconnection. Likewise, the dynamic coupling achieves synchronization for arbitrarily large coupling strength values in certain systems for which the classical configuration is applicable only within a narrow interval of coupling strength values. The performance of the synchronization scheme is illustrated in pairs of identical chaotic and mechanical oscillators.
