In this Letter a feedback linearizing adaptive control system for the control of Chua's circuits is presented. It is assumed that all the parameters of the system are unknown. Using a backstepping design procedure, an adaptive control system is designed which accomplishes trajectory control of the chosen node voltage by an independent voltage source. Simulation results are presented which show precise trajectory tracking and regulation of the state vector to the desired terminal state.
