We suggest a new line of research that we hope will appeal to the nonlinear dynamics community, especially the readers of this Focus Issue. Consider a network of identical oscillators. Suppose the synchronous state is locally stable but not globally stable; it competes with other attractors for the available phase space. How likely is the system to synchronize, starting from a random initial condition? And how does the probability of synchronization depend on the way the network is connected… Expand
The size of the sync basin revisited.
TLDR
The equal-frequency Kuramoto model on a cycle is considered and it is found that the basin volumes scale as (1-4q/n)n, contrasting with the Gaussian behavior postulated in the study by Wiley et al. Expand
When is sync globally stable in sparse networks of identical Kuramoto oscillators?
TLDR
A partial answer to when the synchronized state is not globally stable is provided, if a graph allows a cyclic graph clustering with a sufficient number of clusters or contains a sufficiently long induced subpath without cut vertices of the graph then there is a non-synchronous stable phase-locked solution.

On the Basin of Attractors for the Unidirectionally Coupled Kuramoto Model in a Ring
We present the long-time dynamics of unidirectionally coupled identical Kuramoto oscillators in a ring, when each oscillator is influenced sinusoidally by a single preassigned oscillator. In thisExpand
Synchronization in time-varying networks.
TLDR
It is found that the time taken to reach synchronization is lowered and the stability range of the synchronized state increases considerably in dynamic networks, and so the linear stability analysis and the basin stability criterion provide complementary indicators of stability. Expand
Diversity enhanced synchronization in a small-world network of phase oscillators
In this work, we study the synchronization of a group of phase oscillators (rotors) in the small-world (SW) networks. The distribution of intrinsic angular frequency of the rotors are given by aExpand
Small-world networks of Kuramoto oscillators
TLDR
Two complementary approaches for studying q -twisted states in the coupled oscillator model on SW graphs are developed: linear stability analysis and numerical continuation, which show that long-range random connections in the SW graphs promote synchronization and yields the estimate of the synchronization rate as a function of the SW randomization parameter. Expand
Noise-induced desynchronization and stochastic escape from equilibrium in complex networks.
TLDR
It is found that, quite counterintuitively, systems with inertia leave their initial basin faster than or at the same time as systems without inertia, except for strong white-noise perturbations. Expand
Bifurcations in the Kuramoto model on graphs.
TLDR
This work studies several model problems illustrating the link between network topology and synchronization in coupled dynamical systems, and identifies several families of graphs for which the transition to synchronization in the Kuramoto model starts at the same critical value of the coupling strength and proceeds in a similar manner.

Stability in the Kuramoto–Sakaguchi model for finite networks of identical oscillators
We study the Kuramoto–Sakaguchi model composed by N identical phase oscillators symmetrically coupled. Ranging from local (one-to-one, \(R=1\)) to global (all-to-all, \(R=N/2\)) couplings, we deriveExpand
Synchronization in complex networks of phase oscillators: A survey
TLDR
This survey reviews the vast literature on the theory and the applications of complex oscillator networks, focusing on phase oscillator models that are widespread in real-world synchronization phenomena, that generalize the celebrated Kuramoto model, and that feature a rich phenomenology. Expand

Perturbing the Regular Topology of Cellular Automata: Implications for the Dynamics
TLDR
An algorithm able to re-direct the links without changing the connectivity degree of the nodes is presented, and the effects of small topological perturbations of a regular lattice upon the system dynamical properties in the case where the transition function is the majority rule are analyzed. Expand
Synchronization in small-world systems.
TLDR
Applied to networks of low redundancy, the small-world route produces synchronizability more efficiently than standard deterministic graphs, purely random graphs, and ideal constructive schemes. Expand
Collective dynamics of ‘small-world’ networks
TLDR
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. Expand
Synchronization, diversity, and topology of networks of integrate and fire oscillators
TLDR
The analysis shows that regular lattices perform better than a disordered network and this fact can be understood by considering the variability in the number of links between two adjacent neighbors. Expand

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. Expand

TLDR
Phase synchronization is observed to emerge in the presence of even a tiny fraction P of shortcuts and to display saturated behavior for P > or similar to 0.5, indicating that the same synchronizability as the random network (P=1) can be achieved with relatively small number of shortcuts. Expand
Network synchronization, diffusion, and the paradox of heterogeneity.
TLDR
This analysis reveals a striking relation between this process and the condition for the linear stability of the synchronized states and shows that, for a given degree distribution, the maximum synchronizability is achieved when the network of coupling is weighted and directed and the overall cost involved in the couplings is minimum.

TLDR
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. Expand
Synchronization in Small-World Dynamical Networks
TLDR
It is shown that, for any given coupling strength and a suciently large number of cells, the small-world dynamical network will synchronize, even if the original nearest-neighbor coupled network cannot achieve synchronization under the same condition. Expand
