Continuum Limits for Adaptive Network Dynamics

  title={Continuum Limits for Adaptive Network Dynamics},
  author={Marios-Antonios Gkogkas and Christian Kuehn and Chuang Xu},
Adaptive (or co-evolutionary) network dynamics, i.e., when changes of the network/graph topology are coupled with changes in the node/vertex dynamics, can give rise to rich and complex dynamical behavior. Even though adaptivity can improve the modelling of collective phenomena, it often complicates the analysis of the corresponding mathematical models significantly. For non-adaptive systems, a possible way to tackle this problem is by passing to so-called continuum or mean-field limits, which…

Phase Oscillator Networks with Nonlocal Higher-Order Interactions: Twisted States, Stability and Bifurcations

. The Kuramoto model provides a prototypical framework to synchronization phenomena in interacting particle systems. Apart from full phase synchrony where all oscillators behave identically,

This paper derives macroscopic equations for processes on large co-evolving networks, examples being opinion polarization with the emergence of filter bubbles or other social processes such as norm development, and proposes a suitable closure at the level of a two-particle distribution.

Mean-field and graph limits for collective dynamics models with time-varying weights

In this paper, we study a model for opinion dynamics where the influence weights of agents evolve in time via an equation which is coupled with the opinions’ evolution. We explore the natural

Graphop Mean-Field Limits for Kuramoto-Type Models

Graphops have recently been proposed as a unifying approach to graph limit theory, and here it is shown that they can be used for differential equations on graphs by introducing operator theory more abstractly into VFPEs by considering graphops.

This paper shows how one may easily enter complex network dynamics via graphops (graph operators) into VFPEs, a much more elegant, and profoundly more general, way available due to recent progress in the theory of graph limits.

Desynchronization Transitions in Adaptive Networks.

This Letter develops the master stability approach for a large class of adaptive networks, which allows for reducing the synchronization problem for adaptive networks to a low-dimensional system, by decoupling topological and dynamical properties.

The Nonlinear Heat Equation on Dense Graphs and Graph Limits

For dynamical networks on convergent sequences of simple and weighted graphs, it is proved that convergence of solutions of the initial-value problems for discrete models to those of the limiting continuous equations.

Power Network Dynamics on Graphons

It is proved that there exists a well-posed continuum limit integral equation approximating the large finite-dimensional case power grid network dynamics, and the linear stability of synchronized solutions is analysed and proved.

Epidemic dynamics on an adaptive network.

This work proposes a low-dimensional model to describe the epidemic dynamics on an adaptive network, where the susceptibles are able to avoid contact with the infected by rewiring their network connections, and presents a full local bifurcation analysis.

Multiclusters in Networks of Adaptively Coupled Phase Oscillators

A paradigmatic system of adaptively coupled phase oscillators inspired by neuronal networks with synaptic plasticity is investigated, which reveals splitting of the network into clusters of oscillators with the same frequencies, where different clusters correspond to different frequencies.
