Difference feedback control described as \(u(t)=x(t)-x(t-T)\) with \(u\in R\), \(x\in R\) and \(T>0\), which is also named as time-delayed feedback control, has been an effective method for stabilizing unstable periodic orbits of chaotic dynamics [1] and stabilizing an equilibrium point for a normal dynamical system [2].
