Grass-roots optimization of coupled oscillator networks

  title={Grass-roots optimization of coupled oscillator networks},
  author={Pranick R. Chamlagai and Dane Taylor and Per Sebastian Skardal},
Despite the prevalence of biological and physical systems for which synchronization is critical, existing theory for optimizing synchrony depends on global information and does not explore local mechanisms that enhance synchronization. Thus, there is a lack of understanding for the self-organized, collective processes that aim to optimize/repair synchronous systems, e.g., the dynamics of paracrine signaling within cardiac cells. Here we present “grass-roots” optimization of synchronization… Expand

A two-variable model of cardiac action potential with controlled pacemaker activity and ionic current interpretation
A two state-variable model of cardiac action potentials from which the above mentioned models can be derived for particular values of its parameters and improves that model, being capable of pacemaker activity as it is shown using the phase plane representation and a bifurcation analysis. Expand
Geometric unfolding of synchronization dynamics on networks.
We study the synchronized state in a population of network-coupled, heterogeneous oscillators. In particular, we show that the steady-state solution of the linearized dynamics may be written as aExpand
Synchronized Cardiac Impulses Emerge From Heterogeneous Local Calcium Signals Within and Among Cells of Pacemaker Tissue.
The study has discovered a novel, microscopic Ca2+ signaling paradigm of SAN operation that has escaped detection using low-resolution, macroscopic tissue isochrones employed in prior studies: synchronized APs emerge from heterogeneous subcellular subthreshold Ca2- signals, resembling multiscale complex processes of impulse generation within clusters of neurons in neuronal networks.

Synchronization of Network-Coupled Oscillators with Uncertain Dynamics
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
Optimal phase synchronization in networks of phase-coherent chaotic oscillators.
It is shown by means of numerical and experimental results that it is possible to define a synchrony alignment function J(ω,L) linking the natural frequencies of a set of non-identical phase-coherent chaotic oscillators with the topology of the Laplacian matrix L, the latter accounting for the specific organization of the network of interactions between oscillators.

Emerging Concepts in Paracrine Mechanisms in Regenerative Cardiovascular Medicine and Biology.
The data suggest the existence of a tissue microenvironment where stem cell factors influence cell survival, inflammation, angiogenesis, repair, and regeneration in a temporal and spatial manner. Expand
Optimal synchronization of directed complex networks.
Using the generalized synchrony alignment function, it is shown that a network's synchronization properties can be systematically optimized and promoted by a strong alignment of the natural frequencies with the left singular vectors corresponding to the largest singular values of the Laplacian matrix.

Synchronization of Heterogeneous Oscillators Under Network Modifications: Perturbation and Optimization of the Synchrony Alignment Function
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
Control of coupled oscillator networks with application to microgrid technologies
This work develops a method for control based on identifying and stabilizing problematic oscillators, resulting in a stable spectrum of eigenvalues, and in turn a linearly stable synchronized state. Expand
