When two characteristically different chaotic oscillators are coupled, generalized synchronization can occur. Motivated by the phenomena that common noise can induce and enhance complete synchronization or phase synchronization in chaotic systems, we investigate the effect of noise on generalized chaotic synchronization. We develop a phase-space analysis, which suggests that the effect can be system dependent in that common noise can either induce/enhance or destroy generalized synchronization. A prototype model consisting of a Lorenz oscillator coupled with a dynamo system is used to illustrate these phenomena.
