The energy-optimal entraining of the dynamics of a periodically driven oscillator, moving it from a chaotic attractor to a coexisting stable limit cycle, is investigated via analysis of fluctuational transitions between the two states. The deterministic optimal control function is identified with the corresponding optimal fluctuational force, which is found by numerical and analog simulations.
