Synchronization of coupled oscillators is a paradigm for complexity in many areas of science and engineering. Any realistic network model should include noise effects. We present a description in terms of phase and amplitude deviation for nonlinear oscillators coupled together through noisy interactions. In particular, the coupling is assumed to be modulated by white Gaussian noise. The equations derived for the amplitude deviation and the phase are rigorous, and their validity is not limited…

Influence of Noise on the Phase and Amplitude of Second-Order Oscillators

It is shown that phase noise in an oscillator is a convection-diffusion problem, i.e., noise is responsible for both phase diffusion and frequency shift and the magnitude of a noise-induced frequency shift depends on both the noise intensity and on the curvature of iscohrons.

Analysis of white and f-α noise in oscillators

The Langevin equations describing the deterministic and stochastic behaviour of an oscillator by perturbation methods are derived and applied to a Van der Pol oscillator exhibiting parametric sideband amplification and to a realized oscillator demonstrating the applicability of the theory to technically relevant circuits.

Noise-induced synchronization and clustering in ensembles of uncoupled limit-cycle oscillators.
