We explore the synchronization behavior in interdependent systems, where the one-dimensional (1D) network (the intranetwork coupling strength J(I)) is ferromagnetically intercoupled (the strength J) to the Watts-Strogatz (WS) small-world network (the intranetwork coupling strength J(II)). In the absence of the internetwork coupling (J=0), the former network is well known not to exhibit the synchronized phase at any finite coupling strength, whereas the latter displays the mean-field transition…

Synchronization of interconnected heterogeneous networks: The role of network sizes

This work model such NONs as star-like motifs to analytically derive the critical values of both the internal and the external coupling strengths, at which a phase transition from synchronization to incoherence occurs, which indicates the irrationality of previous studies that assume the network sizes to be the same.

Asymptotically local synchronization in interdependent networks with unidirectional interlinks

The result indicates that the influence of interlinks can be decreased and the proposed scheme can guarantee the synchronization in one sub-network at least, and the robust of the control scheme against the cascading failure.

Effective Subnetwork Topology for Synchronizing Interconnected Networks of Coupled Phase Oscillators

This work considers NoNs consisting of heterogeneous phase oscillators and investigates how the topology of subnetworks affects the global synchrony of the network, providing novel insights into the topological basis of coordinated dynamics in such networks.

Synchronizability of two-layer networks

In this paper, we investigate the synchronizability of two-layer networks according to the master stability method. We define three particular couplings: positively correlated, randomly correlated

Dynamic interdependence and competition in multilayer networks

This work presents a dynamic dependency framework that can capture interdependent and competitive interactions between dynamic systems, which it uses to study synchronization and spreading processes in multilayer networks with interacting layers and is used to study spreading phenomena.

Breakdown of interdependent directed networks

A theoretical framework based on generating functions and percolation theory is developed and found that for interdependent Erdős–Rényi networks the directionality within each network increases their vulnerability and exhibits hybrid phase transitions, and the robustness of interdependent heterogeneous networks increases, whereas that of inter dependent homogeneous networks with strong coupling strengths decreases with in-degree and out-degree correlations.

Neural Network Spectral Robustness under Perturbations of the Underlying Graph

This article studies the connections between edge configuration and dynamics in a simple oriented network composed of two interconnected cliques (representative of brain feedback regulatory circuitry) and suggests potential applications to understanding synaptic restructuring in learning networks and the effects of network configuration on function of regulatory neural circuits.

From a single network to a network of networks

Network science has attracted much attention in recent years due to its interdisciplinary applications. We witnessed the revolution of network science in 1998 and 1999 started with small-world and



Synchronizability determined by coupling strengths and topology on complex networks.

The present work investigates the synchronization of networks with modular structure and concludes that, in these cases, local synchronization is first attained at the most internal level of organization of modules, progressively evolving to the outer levels as the coupling constant is increased.

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.

Catastrophic cascade of failures in interdependent networks

This work develops a framework for understanding the robustness of interacting networks subject to cascading failures and presents exact analytical solutions for the critical fraction of nodes that, on removal, will lead to a failure cascade and to a complete fragmentation of two interdependent networks.

Collective synchronization in spatially extended systems of coupled oscillators with random frequencies.

Collective behavior of locally coupled limit-cycle oscillators with random intrinsic frequencies, spatially extended over d -dimensional hypercubic lattices is studied and critical behavior near the synchronization transition into the fully random phase is unveiled via numerical investigation.

Synchronization transition of identical phase oscillators in a directed small-world network.

A directed small-world network consisting of attractively coupled, identical phase oscillators is numerically studied and a discontinuous transition in the ability of the system to synchronize is observed.

Universality in the one-dimensional chain of phase-coupled oscillators.

This work uses the RG flow to derive how the correlation length scales with the width of the coupling distribution in the limit of large coupling, which leads to the identification of a universality class of distributions with the same critical exponent nu .

Paths to synchronization on complex networks.

It is shown how for fixed coupling strengths local patterns of synchronization emerge differently in homogeneous and heterogeneous complex networks, driving the process towards a certain global synchronization degree following different paths.

Collective dynamics of ‘small-world’ networks

Simple models of networks that can be tuned through this middle ground: regular networks ‘rewired’ to introduce increasing amounts of disorder are explored, finding that these systems can be highly clustered, like regular lattices, yet have small characteristic path lengths, like random graphs.

Critical effect of dependency groups on the function of networks

It is shown that a synergy exists between the failure of connectivity and dependency links that leads to an iterative process of cascading failures that has a devastating effect on the network stability.
