We address the fundamental issue of network scalability in terms of dynamics and topology. In particular, we consider different network topologies and investigate, for every given topology, the dependence of certain dynamical properties on the network size. By focusing on network synchronizability, we find both analytically and numerically that globally coupled networks and random networks are scalable, but locally coupled regular networks are not. Scale-free networks are scalable for certain… CONTINUE READING
