The study of synchronization has received much attention in a variety of applications, ranging from coordinating sensors in wireless networks to models of fireflies flashing in unison in biology. The inverse problem of desynchronization, however, has received little notice. Desynchronization is a powerful primitive: given a set of identical oscillators, applying a desynchronization primitive spreads them throughout the period, resulting in a round-robin schedule. This can be useful in several… CONTINUE READING
