Of the three defining properties of circadian rhythmicity—persisting free‐running rhythm, temperature compensation, and entrainment—the last is often poorly understood by many chronobiologists. This paper gives an overview of entrainment. Where have we been? Where are we now? Whence should we be going? Particular emphasis is given to a discussion of the Discrete vs. Continuous models for entrainment. We provide an integrated mechanism for entrainment from a limit‐cycle perspective. 
Phase Sensitivity Analysis of Circadian Rhythm Entrainment
TLDR
A novel sensitivity analysis is developed to study the circadian entrainment in silico based on a limit cycle approach and applied to a model of Drosophila circadian rhythm, and comparative analyses of complete and skeleton photoperiods suggest a trade-off between the contribution of period modulation and phase shift.
Entrainment Maps : A New Tool for Understanding Properties of Circadian Oscillator Models
Circadian oscillators found across a variety of species are subject to periodic external light-dark forcing. Entrainment to light-dark cycles enables the circadian system to align biological
Entrainment Maps
TLDR
A new tool is developed that overcomes this limitation of PRCs and can assess whether, and at what phase, a circadian oscillator entrains to external forcing with any photoperiod and yields more accurate predictions for phase locking than methods based on the PRC.
Isochron-based phase response analysis of circadian rhythms.
TLDR
Two phase analyses of oscillatory systems for infinitesimal and finite perturbations based on isochrons as a phase metric of a limit cycle are presented and experimentally testable hypotheses for the control mechanisms of circadian phase responses are given.

TLDR
If you sleep well and abstain from flying around the globe or working rotating shift schedules, this pervasive influence ofadian clocks may be easy to take for granted.
Synchronizing the Neurospora crassa circadian clock with the rhythmic environment.
TLDR
This review summarizes the current understanding of the general and molecular principles of entrainment in the model organism Neurospora crassa, a simple eukaryote that has one of the best-studied circadian systems and light-signalling pathways.
Tuning the phase of circadian entrainment
TLDR
The theory provides the potential to explore seasonal variations of circadian rhythms, jet lag and shift work in forthcoming studies and finds that mathematical models can explain not only the stable asymptotic phase of entrainment, but also transient phase dynamics.
A Circadian Surface of Entrainment: Varying T, τ, and Photoperiod in Neurospora crassa
TLDR
The authors investigated phase of entrainment for 162 combinations of T, τ, and photoperiod in Neurospora crassa, which lends itself to a high-throughput approach and suggests that the traditional entrainments paradigms using the PRC and τDD have to be reevaluated.
A solvable model of entrainment ranges for the circadian rhythm under light/dark cycles
TLDR
Simulation results near a critical value were comparable with the experimental results of the entrainment manners of plant circadian rhythms, suggesting the compatibility of self-oscillation and a strong light/dark response in plants.
Exceptional Entrainment of Circadian Activity Rhythms With Manipulations of Rhythm Waveform in Male Syrian Hamsters
TLDR
The formal nature of entrainment to extreme non-24 h days in male Syrian hamsters is evaluated and reveals a latent plasticity in mammalian circadian systems that can be realized in the absence of pharmacological or genetic manipulations.

TLDR
It is only by virtue of entrainment that programs in behavior and physiology produced by endogenous circadian systems can be properly timed, crucial for the advantages in natural selection.
Circadian Systems: Entrainment
TLDR
The circadian rhythmicity of eukaroytic organisms is dictated by an innate program that specifies the time course through the day of many aspects of metabolism and behavior, and this program is subject to entrainment by one or more of the external cycles whose period it closely approximates.
Assignment of circadian function for the Neurospora clock gene frequency
TLDR
Traditional circadian entrainment protocols are used to distinguish between under- or overexpression of a gene product can result in arrhythmicity, whether the protein is part of the oscillator or substantially part of a rhythmically expressed input pathway.

TLDR
The mechanism of entrainment of circadian rhythms by the natural cycle of light and darkness has received considerable interest, and one of the main obstacles has been ignorance about both the photoreceptors involved and the sensory pathways to the circadian pacemakers.
How temperature changes reset a circadian oscillator.
TLDR
Moderate temperature changes could dominate light-to-dark shifts in the influence of circadian timing and how single transitions can initiate rhythmicity from characteristic circadian phases.
