We consider a system of phase oscillators with random intrinsic frequencies coupled through sparse random networks and investigate how the connectivity disorder affects the nature of collective synchronization transitions. Various distribution types of intrinsic frequencies are considered: uniform, unimodal, and bimodal distribution. We employ a heterogeneous mean-field approximation based on the annealed networks and also perform numerical simulations on the quenched Erdös-Rényi networks. We… CONTINUE READING
