Dynamics of the finite-dimensional Kuramoto model: Global and cluster synchronization
Synchronization phenomena in networks of globally coupled non-identical oscillators have been one of the key problems in nonlinear dynamics over the years. The main model used within this framework is the Kuramoto model. This model shows three main types of behavior: global synchronization, cluster synchronization including chimera states and totally incoherent behavior. We present new sufficient conditions for phase synchronization and conditions for an asynchronous mode in the finite-size Kuramoto model. In order to find these conditions for constant and time varying frequency mismatch, we propose a simple method of comparison which allows one to obtain an explicit estimate of the phase synchronization range. Theoretical results are supported by numerical simulations.
