Synchronization in complex networks by time-varying couplings
- 96 Downloads
Synchronization in networks of complex topologies using couplings of time-varying strength is numerically investigated. The time-dependencies of coupling strengths are coupled to the dynamics of the nodes in a way to enhance synchronization. By time-varying couplings, oscillators are found to take quite a short time to reach synchronization state when the couplings are relatively strong. Even when a nearly regular networks of large-size with few shortcuts is difficult to be synchronized by fixed couplings, the time-varying couplings can easily enhance the emergence of synchronization.
