Bassett and Fabio Pasqualetti}, journal={IEEE Transactions on Control of Network Systems}, year={2020}, volume={7}, pages={302-314} }

In this paper, we study cluster synchronization in networks of oscillators with heterogenous Kuramoto dynamics, where multiple groups of oscillators with identical phases coexist in a connected network. Cluster synchronization is at the basis of several biological and technological processes; yet, the underlying mechanisms to enable the cluster synchronization of Kuramoto oscillators have remained elusive. In this paper, we derive quantitative conditions on the network weights, cluster… Expand
