In this work we study the dynamics of Kuramoto oscillators on a stochastically evolving network whose evolution is governed by the phases of the individual oscillators and degree distribution. Synchronization is achieved after a threshold connection density is reached. This cumulative effect of topology and dynamics has many real-world implications, where synchronization in a system emerges as a collective property of its components in a self-organizing manner. The synchronous state remains…

The effect of topology on organization of synchronous behavior in dynamical networks with adaptive couplings

Abstract We study the influence of the initial topology of connections on the organization of synchronous behavior in networks of phase oscillators with adaptive couplings. We found that networks

Development of structural correlations and synchronization from adaptive rewiring in networks of Kuramoto oscillators

This work finds that a simple rule can cause initially disordered networks to organize into more structured topologies that support enhanced synchronization dynamics, and offers a mechanism through which emergent phenomena and organization can arise in complex systems utilizing local rules.



Synchronization of Kuramoto oscillators in scale-free networks

It is found that the resynchronization time of a perturbed node decays as a power law of its connectivity, providing a simple analytical explanation to this interesting behavior.

Evolving mortal networks.

Critical behavior is observed in the long-time coordination number distribution of the system; associated exponents are universal in one part of parameter space, but depend on the ratio of birth and death parameters elsewhere.

The critical coupling strength and the order-parameter critical exponent derived by the mean-field approach depend on the degree exponent lambda, which implies a close connection between structural organization and the emergence of dynamical order in complex systems.

The Kuramoto model: A simple paradigm for synchronization phenomena

Synchronization phenomena in large populations of interacting elements are the subject of intense research efforts in physical, biological, chemical, and social systems. A successful approach to the

Explosive synchronization in adaptive and multilayer networks.

This work shows that explosive synchronization of networked oscillators is far more general and can occur in adaptive and multilayer networks in the absence of such correlation properties, and provides a rigorous, analytical treatment to properly ground all of the observed scenarios.

This work presents a classical Hamiltonian system with 2N state variables that in its action-angle representation exactly yields Kuramoto dynamics on N-dimensional invariant manifolds and reveals the global synchronization transition point for finite N more precisely than the standard Kuramoto order parameter.

Onset of synchronization in large networks of coupled oscillators.

The theory of the transition from incoherence to coherence in large networks of coupled phase oscillators is studied and it is found that the theory describes the transition well in situations in which the mean-field approximation fails.

Stochastically evolving networks.

We discuss a class of models for the evolution of networks in which new nodes are recruited into the network at random times, and links between existing nodes that are not yet directly connected may

Synchronization - A Universal Concept in Nonlinear Sciences

This work discusseschronization of complex dynamics by external forces, which involves synchronization of self-sustained oscillators and their phase, and its applications in oscillatory media and complex systems.
