Stability of a Parametrically Driven, Coupled Oscillator System: An Auxillary Function Method Approach

  title={Stability of a Parametrically Driven, Coupled Oscillator System: An Auxillary Function Method Approach},
  author={Andrew M. McMillan and Yin Lu Young and Mary E. Robinson},
Coupled, nonlinear oscillators are often studied in applied biology, physics, fluids, and many other disciplines. In this paper, we study a parametrically driven, coupled oscillator system where the individual oscillators are subjected to varying frequency and phase with a focus on the influence of the damping and coupling parameters away from parametric resonance frequencies. In particular, we study the key long-term statistics of the oscillator system’s trajectories and stability. We present…

Response of parametrically driven nonlinear coupled oscillators with application to micromechanical and nanomechanical resonator arrays
The response of a coupled array of nonlinear oscillators to parametric excitation is calculated in the weak nonlinear limit using secular perturbation theory. Exact results for small arrays of
Theory of coupled parametric oscillators beyond coupled Ising spins
Periodically driven parametric oscillators offer a convenient way to simulate classical Ising spins. When many parametric oscillators are coupled dissipatively, they can be analogous to networks of
Stability Theory of Synchronized Motion in Coupled-Oscillator Systems
The general stability theory of the synchronized motions of the coupled· oscillator systems is developed with the use of the extended Lyapunov matrix approach. We give the explicit formula for a
Stability of incoherence in a population of coupled oscillators
We analyze a mean-field model of coupled oscillators with randomly distributed frequencies. This system is known to exhibit a transition to collective oscillations: for small coupling, the system is
Frequency lock-in is caused by coupled-mode flutter
The mechanism underlying the lock-in of frequencies in flow-induced vibrations is analysed using elementary linear dynamics. Considering the case of lock-in in vortex-induced vibrations (VIV), we use
The Theory of Weakly Coupled Oscillators
This chapter focuses on the application of phase response curves (PRCs) in predicting the phase locking behavior in networks of periodically oscillating neurons using the theory of weakly coupled
From Kuramoto to Crawford: exploring the onset of synchronization in populations of coupled oscillators
The Kuramoto model describes a large population of coupled limit-cycle oscillators whose natural frequencies are drawn from some prescribed distribution. If the coupling strength exceeds a certain

In the process of developing a theory of the three-oscillator probe, it is shown that several regimes of asymptotic coupling can be derived for the array classes, including the case of large imaginary coupling, which apparently has not been explored.
Structure of long-term average frequencies for Kuramoto oscillator systems.
The long-term average frequency as a function of the natural frequency for Kuramoto oscillators with periodic coefficients is studied; it is proved it is strictly increasing between these plateaus.
