We review the major ideas involved in the control of chaos. We present the Ott-Grebogi-Yorke (OGY) method of controlling chaos, which is a particular case of the pole placement technique, but which is the one leading to the shortest time to achieve the control of chaotic systems. Implementation using only measured time series in experimental settings is also described. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
