We study the Kuramoto model on complex networks, in which natural frequencies of phase oscillators and the vertex degrees are correlated. Using the annealed network approximation and numerical simulations, we explore a special case in which the natural frequencies of the oscillators and the vertex degrees are linearly coupled. We find that in uncorrelated scale-free networks with the degree distribution exponent $2l\ensuremath{\gamma}l3$, the model undergoes a first-order phase transition…

Synchronization in the random-field Kuramoto model on complex networks.

This work considers random fields with uniformly distributed directions and homogeneous and heterogeneous (Gaussian) field magnitude distribution and applies the Ott-Antonsen method and the annealed-network approximation to find the critical behavior of the order parameter.

Transition to synchrony in degree-frequency correlated Sakaguchi-Kuramoto model.

This work analytically derive self-consistent equations for group angular velocity and order parameter for the model in the thermodynamic limit and observes that the critical coupling strength for the onset of synchronization is decreased by phase-frustration parameter in case of SF network where as in ER network, the phase-Frustration delays the arrival of synchronization.

Synchronization transition in Sakaguchi-Kuramoto model on complex networks with partial degree-frequency correlation.

Interestingly, explosive synchronization (ES) has been observed in both networks for different ranges of values of α and f and critical coupling strengths for transition to synchronization computed from the analytically derived self-consistent equations show a very good agreement with the numerical results.

Explosive synchronization transitions in complex neural networks.

It is shown that, if natural frequencies of the oscillations are positively correlated with node degrees and the width of the frequency distribution is larger than a threshold value, a strong hysteresis loop arises in the synchronization diagram of BA networks, indicating the evidence of an explosive transition towards synchronization of relaxation oscillators system.

Mean field theory of assortative networks of phase oscillators

Employing the Kuramoto model as an illustrative example, we show how the use of the mean-field approximation can be applied to large networks of phase oscillators with assortativity. We then use the

Reduction of oscillator dynamics on complex networks to dynamics on complete graphs through virtual frequencies.

The virtual frequency distribution encodes both the natural frequency distribution (dynamics) and the degree distribution (topology) and gives direct explanations to a variety of phenomena that have been observed in complex networks, such as explosive synchronization and vanishing synchronization onset.

Low dimensional behavior of explosive synchronization on star graphs

Explosive synchronization (ES) on heterogenous networks is a hot topic in the study of complex networks in recent years. In this paper, we introduce an analytical framework to study the ES of

Effects of Reduced Frequency on Network Configuration and Synchronization Transition

The concept of 'reduced frequency', a measure which can quantify natural frequencies of each pair of oscillators, is proposed and an evolving network whose linking rules are controlled by its own dynamical property is introduced.

Explosive phenomena in complex networks

The vast literature on explosive phenomena in networked systems is reviewed to provide a coherent overview and perspective for future research to address the many vital questions that remained unanswered and to classify explosive phenomena based on underlying mechanisms.



Chemical oscillations

A chemical reaction is usually thought of as coming together of reactant molecules to form products. The concentrations of initial components (reactants) decrease, and concentrations of products
