When the coexistence of multiple types of interactions truly matters for the synchronization of interacting complex systems. The structure of many real-world systems is best captured by networks consisting of several interaction layers. Understanding how a multilayered structure of connections affects the synchronization properties of dynamical systems evolving on top of it is a highly relevant endeavor in mathematics and physics and has potential applications in several socially relevant… 

Mean-field nature of synchronization stability in networks with multiple interaction layers

A mean-field theory of synchronization for networks with multiple interaction layers is developed and it is shown that this applies to both homogeneous and heterogeneous layers, lowering computational complexity.

When multilayer links exchange their roles in synchronization.

An approximation method is proposed which significantly enhances the predictive power of the master stability function for stable synchronization in multilayer networks and reduces the complex stability analysis to simply solving a set of linear algebraic equations for saddle-focus oscillators.

Stability of synchronization in simplicial complexes with multiple interaction layers.

It is shown that the synchronization state exists as an invariant solution and derive the necessary condition for a stable synchronization state in the presence of general coupling functions and is generalizes the well-known master stability function scheme to higher-order structures with multiple interaction layers.

Dynamics of multilayer networks with amplification.

Using other systems with different topologies, an in-depth study on the case of a network of Rössler oscillators using a master stability function and order parameter leads to several phenomena such as complete synchronization, generalized, cluster, and phase synchronization with amplification.

Emergence of synchronization in multiplex networks of mobile Rössler oscillators.

This work concentrating on exploring the emergence of interlayer and intralayer synchronization states in a multiplex dynamical network comprising of layers having mobile nodes performing two-dimensional lattice random walk finds interesting results on interlayer synchronization for a continuous removal of the interlayer links as well as for progressively created static nodes.

Stability of synchronization in simplicial complexes

It is shown that complete synchronization exists as an invariant solution, and the necessary condition for it to be observed as a stable state is given, and in some relevant instances, such a necessary condition takes the form of a Master Stability Function.

Inter-layer synchronization in non-identical multi-layer networks

By the use of multiplexed layers of electronic circuits, the inter-layer synchronization as a function of the removed links is studied, and a non-trivial relationship connecting the betweenness centrality of the missing links and the intra-layer coupling strength is identified.

Symmetry-Independent Stability Analysis of Synchronization Patterns

A generalization of the MSF formalism is established that can characterize the stability of any cluster synchronization pattern, even when the oscillators and/or their interactions are nonidentical, and leads to an algorithm that is error-tolerant and orders of magnitude faster than existing symmetry-based algorithms.



Synchronization of hypernetworks of coupled dynamical systems

We consider the synchronization of coupled dynamical systems when different types of interactions are simultaneously present. We assume that a set of dynamical systems is coupled through 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.

Enhancing the stability of the synchronization of multivariable coupled oscillators.

This work reports on the existence of an optimal coupling transference that maximizes the stability of the synchronous state in a network of Rössler-like oscillators and designs an experimental implementation which grounds the robustness of the theoretical predictions against parameter mismatches, as well as against intrinsic noise of the system.

Complex Networks: Structure and Dynamics

The major concepts and results recently achieved in the study of the structure and dynamics of complex networks are reviewed, and the relevant applications of these ideas in many different disciplines are summarized, ranging from nonlinear science to biology, from statistical mechanics to medicine and engineering.

Complex networks: Structure and dynamics

Network synchronization landscape reveals compensatory structures, quantization, and the positive effect of negative interactions

It is shown that networks with best complete synchronization, least coupling cost, and maximum dynamical robustness, have arbitrary complexity but quantized total interaction strength, which constrains the allowed number of connections.

Layer–layer competition in multiplex complex networks

The results indicate that there is a transition from localization (use of a preferred layer) to delocalization (combined usage of both layers) and that the prevalence of a particular layer (in the localized state) depends on the structural properties.

Control of coupled oscillator networks with application to microgrid technologies

This work develops a method for control based on identifying and stabilizing problematic oscillators, resulting in a stable spectrum of eigenvalues, and in turn a linearly stable synchronized state.

Synchronization of interconnected networks: the role of connector nodes.

The functional relation between synchronizability and size for a given network of networks, and the existence of the optimal connector link weights for the different interconnection strategies are found.

Control of Multilayer Networks

This work builds a theoretical framework for the linear controllability of multilayer networks by mapping the problem into a combinatorial matching problem and finds that correlating the external signals in the different layers can significantly reduce the multiplex network robustness to node removal.
