Nonlinear control is applied to coupled oscillator networks to attain full synchronization. The control of complex systems and network-coupled dynamical systems is a topic of vital theoretical importance in mathematics and physics with a wide range of applications in engineering and various other sciences. Motivated by recent research into smart grid technologies, we study the control of synchronization and consider the important case of networks of coupled phase oscillators with nonlinear… Expand
On controlling networks of limit-cycle oscillators.
TLDR
The control of network-coupled limit cycle oscillators is studied, extending the previous work that focused on phase oscillators, and aims to attain complete frequency synchronization by applying control to as few oscillators as possible. Expand
Synchronization of Network-Coupled Oscillators with Uncertain Dynamics
TLDR
This work extends the Synchrony Alignment Function (SAF) framework to analyze network-coupled oscillators with heterogeneous natural frequencies that are drawn as a multivariate random vector and obtains expressions for the expectation and variance of the SAF for given network structures. Expand
Network Synchronization with Uncertain Dynamics
Synchronization of network-coupled dynamical units is important to a variety of natural and engineered processes including circadian rhythms, cardiac function, neural processing, and power grids.Expand
Synchronization of Heterogeneous Oscillators Under Network Modifications: Perturbation and Optimization of the Synchrony Alignment Function
TLDR
This work studies how network modifications affect the synchronization properties of network-coupled dynamical systems that have heterogeneous node dynamics (e.g., phase oscillators with non-identical frequencies), which is often the case for real-world systems. Expand
On mathematical analysis of synchronization to bidirectionally coupled Kuramoto oscillators
Abstract This article is concerned about the synchronization problem of the bidirectionally coupled Kuramoto model. In this model, each oscillator only interacts with the oscillators with adjacentExpand
Enhancing network synchronizability by strengthening a single node.
TLDR
A single-node-based scheme for improving synchronization is proposed: the eigenvector-centrality-based strengthening scheme, which has a clear advantage over the conventional ones based on betweenness, closeness, and degree centralities. Expand
Conditions for Feedback Linearization of Network Systems
TLDR
Novel conditions to test whether a nonlinear network is feedback-linearizable are provided, given some dedicated control inputs injected to a set of network nodes, which provide an easy-to-check algebraic condition that can be tested on the Jacobian matrix of the network dynamics evaluated at some desired working point.

Controlling and enhancing synchronization through adaptive phase lags.
TLDR
The threshold for instability for the adaptive lag model shows robustness against variations in the associated time constant down to lower densities of controlled oscillators and a simple intuitive model emerges based on the interaction between splayed clusters close to a critical point. Expand
