This paper studies the stability of synchronized states in networks, where couplings between nodes are characterized by some distributed time delay, and develops a generalized master stability function approach. Using a generic example of Stuart-Landau oscillators, it is shown how the stability of synchronized solutions in networks with distributed delay coupling can be determined through a semi-analytic computation of Floquet exponents. The analysis of stability of fully synchronized and of…

Dynamics of coupled Kuramoto oscillators with distributed delays.
The results show that while having the distribution inside the coupling function only changes parameter regions where phase-locked solutions exist, when the distribution is taken outside the couplingfunction, it affects both the existence, as well as stability properties of in- and anti-phase states.
Adaptively Controlled Synchronization of Delay-Coupled Networks
An adaptive control delay-coupled networks of Stuart-Landau oscillators, an expansion of systems close to a Hopf bifurcation, is discussed and it is found that the emerging topology of the network is modulated by the coupling delay.
Complex partial synchronization patterns in networks of delay-coupled neurons
The spatio-temporal dynamics of a multiplex network of delay-coupled FitzHugh–Nagumo oscillators with non-local and fractal connectivities are studied and a new regime of coexistence of slow and fast oscillations is found.
Stability switches and bifurcation in a system of four coupled neural networks with multiple time delays
This paper reveals the dynamical behaviors of a coupled network consisting of four neural sub-networks and multiple two-way couplings of neurons between the individual sub-networks. Different types
Transitions between dynamical behaviors of oscillator networks induced by diversity of nodes and edges.
It is shown that the probability for a network to exhibit a certain dynamical behavior (network susceptibility) is affected differently by dynamical and structural heterogeneity and depends on the respective homogeneous dynamics.
Effect of diluted connectivities on cluster synchronization of adaptively coupled oscillator networks
This work investigates the robustness of multicluster states on networks of adaptively coupled Kuramoto-Sakaguchi oscillators against the random dilution of the underlying network topology, utilizing the master stability approach for adaptive networks in order to highlight the interplay between adaptivity and topology.
Periodic solutions for neutral coupled oscillators network with feedback and time-varying delay
This paper is considered to be about the existence of periodic solutions for neutral coupled oscillators network with feedback control and time-varying delay (NCONFT). Based on the systematic method
Dynamics of unidirectionally-coupled ring neural network with discrete and distributed delays
In this paper, a ring neural network with one-way distributed-delay coupling between the neurons and a discrete delayed self-feedback is considered and a subset of the amplitude death regions depending on even (odd) number of neurons in the network is found.
Aging transition in systems of oscillators with global distributed-delay coupling.
A globally coupled network of active and inactive oscillators with distributed-delay coupling is considered and it is suggested that for the uniform distribution increasing the width of distribution for the same mean delay allows aging transition to happen for a smaller coupling strength and a smaller proportion of inactive elements.


Controlling synchrony by delay coupling in networks: from in-phase to splay and cluster states.
This work proposes the coupling phase as a crucial control parameter to switch between in-phase synchronization or desynchronization for general network topologies or betweenin-phase, cluster, or splay states in unidirectional rings.
Loss of synchronization in complex neuronal networks with delay
Compared to random networks, it is found that small-world topologies are more susceptible to desynchronization via inhibition and the scaling of the critical value in dependence on network properties is explored.
Amplitude death in oscillator networks with variable-delay coupling.
This work analyzes the regimes of amplitude death in a ring network of Stuart-Landau oscillators and demonstrates the superiority of the proposed method with respect to the constant delay case.
Synchronizing distant nodes: a universal classification of networks.
It is shown that for large coupling delays synchronizability relates in a simple way to the spectral properties of the network topology that allows a universal classification of networks with respect to their synchronization properties and solves the problem of complete synchronization in networks with strongly delayed coupling.
Cluster and group synchronization in delay-coupled networks.
This work investigates the stability of synchronized states in delay-coupled networks where synchronization takes place in groups of different local dynamics or in cluster states in networks with identical local dynamics and finds that the master stability function shows a discrete rotational symmetry depending on the number of groups.
Synchronization properties of network motifs: influence of coupling delay and symmetry.
The relation between the theoretical results on delay-coupled Kuramoto oscillators and the synchronization properties of networks consisting of real-world delay-Coupled oscillators, such as semiconductor laser arrays and neuronal circuits is discussed.

Networks of nonlinear units with time-delayed couplings can synchronize to a common chaotic trajectory and analytic results are derived for the stability of the chaotic synchronization manifold from the theory of polynomials.
Synchronization of networks of chaotic units with time-delayed couplings.
A network of chaotic units is investigated where the units are coupled by signals with a transmission delay and it is shown that chaotic trajectories cannot be synchronized if the transmission delay is larger than the time scales of the individual units.

A stability criterion for the synchronous state in networks of identical phase oscillators with delayed coupling is derived and any network in which each oscillator receives delayed signals from k others is considered.
Synchronization-desynchronization transitions in complex networks: an interplay of distributed time delay and inhibitory nodes.
It is found that beyond a critical inhibition ratio, synchronization tends to be unstable, however, increasing distributional widths can counteract this trend, leading to multiple resynchronization transitions at relatively high inhibition ratios.
