We present a scalable approach for simplifying the stability analysis of cluster synchronization patterns on directed networks. When a network has directional couplings, decomposition of the coupling matrix into independent blocks (which in turn decouples the variational equation) is no longer adequate to reveal the full relations among perturbation modes. Instead, it is often necessary to introduce directional dependencies among the blocks and establish hierarchies among perturbation modes…

Unified treatment of synchronization patterns in generalized networks with higher-order, multilayer, and temporal interactions

TLDR
A unified framework is established to simplify the stability analysis of cluster synchronization patterns for a wide range of generalized networks, including hypergraphs, multilayer networks, and temporal networks and demonstrates the existence of chimera states that emerge exclusively in the presence of higher-order interactions.

Analyzing states beyond full synchronization on hypergraphs requires methods beyond projected networks

TLDR
Considering the full hypergraph is required for analyzing the most general types of dynamics on hypergraphs and it is shown that a formulation based on node clusters and the corresponding edge clusters induced by the node partitioning enables the analysis of admissible patterns of cluster synchronization and their effective dynamics.

Do higher-order interactions promote synchronization?

Understanding how nonpairwise interactions alter dynamical processes in networks is of funda-mental importance to the characterization and control of many coupled systems. Recent discoveries of

Comment on "Failure of the simultaneous block diagonalization technique applied to complete and cluster synchronization of random networks"

TLDR
Although the results in Panahi et al. are technically valid, their interpretations are misleading and akin to claiming a community detection algorithm to be a failure because it does not find any meaningful communities in Erdős-Rényi networks.

Graph partitions and cluster synchronization in networks of oscillators

TLDR
This work derives conditions and properties of networks in which such clustered behavior emerges and shows that the ensuing dynamics is the result of the localization of the eigenvectors of the associated graph Laplacians linked to the existence of invariant subspaces.

One-way dependent clusters and stability of cluster synchronization in directed networks

TLDR
The main contribution of this paper is a method to transform the cluster stability problem in an irreducible form and decompose the original problem into subproblems of the lowest dimension, which allows to immediately detect inter-dependencies among clusters.

TLDR
A general framework to study stability of the synchronous solution for a hypernetwork of coupled dynamical systems is presented and the dimensionality of the problem is reduced by using simultaneous block diagonalization of matrices.

Symmetry-Independent Stability Analysis of Synchronization Patterns

TLDR
A generalization of the MSF formalism is established that can characterize the stability of any cluster synchronization pattern, even when the oscillators and/or their interactions are nonidentical, and leads to an algorithm that is error-tolerant and orders of magnitude faster than existing symmetry-based algorithms.

Cluster synchronization on hypergraphs

TLDR
The analysis here enables the study of detailed patterns of synchronization on hypergraphs beyond full synchronization and extends the analysis of cluster synchronization to beyond purely dyadic interactions.

Synchronization and equitable partitions in weighted networks.

The work presented in this paper has two purposes. One is to expose that the coupled cell network formalism of Golubitsky, Stewart, and collaborators accommodates in a natural way the weighted

Cluster synchronization and isolated desynchronization in complex networks with symmetries.

TLDR
A new framework and techniques are presented and techniques for the analysis of network dynamics that shows the connection between network symmetries and cluster formation are developed that could guide the design of new power grid systems or lead to new understanding of the dynamical behaviour of networks ranging from neural to social.

Cluster and group synchronization in delay-coupled networks.

TLDR
This work investigates the stability of synchronized states in delay-coupled networks where synchronization takes place in groups of different local dynamics or in cluster states in networks with identical local dynamics and finds that the master stability function shows a discrete rotational symmetry depending on the number of groups.
