In this paper we propose a method for enhancing synchronizability using convex optimization. This method is based on adding new edges to the network, later the performance of the proposed method is tested through providing some numerical examples. Furthermore, a comparison with another method for adding edges, namely edge addition using an eigenvector criterion is presented. Moreover, the extension of the proposed method to the networks with different edge weights is described.
