The notion of a part of phase space containing desired (or allowed) states of a dynamical system is important in a wide range of complex systems research. It has been called the safe operating space, the viability kernel or the sunny region. In this paper we define the notion of survivability: Given a random initial condition, what is the likelihood that the transient behaviour of a deterministic system does not leave a region of desirable states. We demonstrate the utility of this novel… 

How to find simple nonlocal stability and resilience measures

This work constructs simple nonlocal stability and resilience measures that record a systems ability to tackle both large and small perturbations, and concludes that the suggested measures detect dynamic behaviour, crucial for a systems Stability and resilience, which can be completely missed by local measures.

How to find simple nonlocal stability and resilience measures

Stability of dynamical systems is a central topic with applications in widespread areas such as economy, biology, physics and mechanical engineering. The dynamics of nonlinear systems may completely

Stability of dynamical processes on complex networks

inspired by the concept of ecological resilience, it is asserted that the stability of the different attractors of a multistable system is determined by the overall structure of their respective basins of attraction, which relates to the speed of return of the system to its equilibrium, following a perturbation.

Dynamic Perturbation Spreading in Networks

This work derives analytic estimators for the peak response based on effective expectation values used to characterize the typical time and magnitude of the response of a unit by interpreting the system's response as a probability distribution over time and suggests that perturbations spread ballistically in networks with diffusive coupling.

Stability of meshed DC microgrids using Probabilistic Analysis

We analyze the stability of meshed DC microgrids using the proposed Probabilistic Analysis of Deterministic Systems (PADeS). By sampling a random distribution of networks as well as disturbances, we

Local versus global stability in dynamical systems with consecutive Hopf-Bifurcations

Quantifying the stability of an equilibrium is central in the theory of dynamical systems as well as in engineering and control. A comprehensive picture must include the response to both small and

Review of sample-based methods used in an analysis of multistable dynamical systems.

This study describes the sample-based methods and presents their advantages and disadvantages for the archetypal nonlinear oscillator with multiple coexisting attractors to give helpful information in selecting the best method or methods for analyzing the dynamical system.

Recovery time after localized perturbations in complex dynamical networks

The framework of single-node recovery time (SNRT) is proposed which provides an estimate of the relative time scales underlying the transient dynamics of the nodes of a network during its restoration to synchrony and is extended to a measure of resilience of the different nodes of an networked dynamical system.

Bounding the first exit from the basin: Independence times and finite-time basin stability.

The derivation of a lower bound for the probability of the system to remain in the basin, given that perturbations are rare enough is derived, which is efficient to evaluate numerically and a novel probabilistic stability measure on its own.

Probabilistic Stability Assessment for Active Distribution Grids

The results of a large-scale survivability analysis reveal a broad field of application for probabilistic stability analysis and that new non-intuitive stability correlations can be obtained, and the proposed method shows strong potential to efficiently conduct power system stability analysis in active distribution grids.



How basin stability complements the linear-stability paradigm

Linear-stability measures for assessing the state of a dynamical system are inherently local, and thus insufficient to quantify stability against substantial perturbations. The volume of a state’s

The impact of model detail on power grid resilience measures

This model has been found to give an accurate picture of the long term evolution of synchronous machines in the engineering literature for post fault studies and is studied to find evidence that some stable fix points of the swing equation become unstable when the authors add voltage dynamics.

A random growth model for power grids and other spatially embedded infrastructure networks

It is shown that the resulting degree distribution has an exponential tail and may show a maximum at degree two, suitable to observations of real-world power grid networks.

Chimera states are chaotic transients.

The results indicate that chimera states can be considered as chaotic transients, showing the same properties as type-II supertransients in coupled map lattices.

Transient scaling and resurgence of chimera states in coupled Boolean phase oscillators

The average transient time increases exponentially with the network size and can be modeled as a Poisson process, which is a result of a synchronization rate that follows a power law of the phase-space volume.

Comparative analysis of existing models for power-grid synchronization

The dynamics of power-grid networks is becoming an increasingly active area of research within the physics and network science communities. The results from such studies are typically insightful and

The Nature of Attractor Basins in multistable Systems

In systems that exhibit multistability, namely those that have more than one coexisting attractor, the basins of attraction evolve in specific ways with the creation of each new attractor. These
