Effects of parameter mismatches in synchronized time series are studied first for an analytical non-linear dynamical system (coupled logistic map, CLM) and then in a real system (Electroencephalograph (EEG) signals). The internal system parameters derived from GP analysis are shown to be quite effective in understanding aspects of synchronization and non-synchronization in the two systems considered. In particular, GP is also successful in generating the CLM coupled equations to a very good accuracy with reasonable multi-step predictions. It is shown that synchronization in the above two systems is well understood in terms of parameter mismatches in the system equations derived by GP approach.
