SYNCHRONIZATION VIA DIFFUSION

The type of connection

Isolated nodes represent identical and autonomous dynamical systems

)( )()( ii xfx =& , ni Rx ∈)( , 2≥n , Ni ,,2,1 K=

The isolated system )(xfx =& is an oscillator (periodic or chaotic).

The network is undirected, unweighted and connected.

The coupling is of diffusive (i.e. linear) nature, i.e.

The type of synchronization

We consider the strongest (and simplest) case: complete synchronization. The n -dimensional synchronization (linear) manifold

Note: the synchronous solution )()()()( )()2()1( txtxtxtx N ==== L , 0≥t , is a solution of the isolated system )(xfx =& and is assumed to converge to a synchronous attractor A (periodic or chaotic). Note: this framework seems rather restricted, but there are many interesting applications (in physics, biology, ecology, mechanics,…see [Boccaletti et al. 2006 PR and refs therein]). There are also several extensions (see last page).

An example [Belykh et al. 2009 JBD]

Each node represents a geographic location (island, patch) that is the habitat of a three-trophic food chain (resource R, consumer C, predator P).The isolated demographic dynamics are described with the classical Rosenzweig-MacArthur model:

H is diagonal. It says which are the species that disperse and sets the relative dispersal rates, e.g.

• [ ]001diagHH =′= , only R disperses (e.g. seeds transported by the wind) • [ ]010diagHH =′′= , only C disperses (e.g. planktonic feeders predated by trouts) • [ ]100diagHH =′′′= , only P disperses (e.g. herbivores)

LOCAL STABILITY OF SYNCHRONIZATION AND THE MSF APPROACH Local stability and Lyapunov exponents (LEs)

By linearizing around a synchronous chaotic solution )(tx , one can compute nN LEs, n of which are the exponents

000 1

F. Dercole – Politecnico di Milano – ver. 28/01/2013 11/22

The MSF approach [Pecora and Carroll 1998 PRL, Jansen and Lloyd 2000 JMB]

It exploits the spectral properties of the laplacian matrix L • L is real and symmetric ⇒ real eigenvalues and diagonalizable

(N linearly independent and orthogonal eigenvectors) [ ]iT diagTLT λ= , with T = [eigenvectors]T

• L is zero row-sums ⇒ 0 is eigenvalue associated to the eigenvector [ ]T1,,1K • L− is Metzler (i.e. 0≥− ijl for ji ≠ ) and irreducible (⇒ Perron–Frobenius theory)

⇒ the dominant eigenvalue dλ is unique and real ⇒ 0 = min{row-sums} ≤≤ dλ max{row-sums} = 0 ⇒ 0=dλ

Thus, the spectrum of L can be ordered as: Nλλλ ≤≤

F. Dercole – Politecnico di Milano – ver. 28/01/2013 12/22

The MSF also exploits the following “tricky” change of coordinates:

)()()( txx ii −=δ , Ni ,,2,1 K=

The network model gets transformed into

+−= )()()( ))(( iiii vHdvtxJv λ& h.o.t., Ni ,,2,1 K= ,

where xfxJ ∂∂= /)( is the Jacobian of the isolated system.

F. Dercole – Politecnico di Milano – ver. 28/01/2013 13/22

1=i ( 01 =λ ) ⇒ )1()1( ))(( vtxJv =&

yields the LEs nLL ,,1 K of the synchronous attractor A

Ni ,,2 K= ( 0>iλ ) ⇒ local stability of synchronization “requires” the largest LE of )()()( ))(( ii

ii vHdvtxJv λ−=& to be negative

Instead of the above )1( −N linear n-dimensional systems, we can discuss the

Master Stability Equation (MSE): vHvtxJv ε−= ))((& , nRv∈ , 0≥ε and, in particular, draw the

Master Stability Function (MSF): == )(εMSFMSF the largest LE of the MSE Notes:

• 0)0( >MSF ( 0= ) if the synchronous attractor A is chaotic (periodic) • the MSF only depends on the isolated system (f ) and on the diffusion profile (H ),

it is independent on the topology of the network. • drawing the MSF is computationally much heavier than computing 1−N of its values!

Types of MSF

type I synchronization is not possible on any network type II synchronization is possible on any network, provided

2/λε sd > e.g.: sync is easier for large N on complete nets ( N=2λ ) sync is hard for large N on Watts-Strogatz loops ( 02 →λ )

type III (= non type I or II) sync is possible (for suitable d) for networks with 12 ελ >d and 2ελ

F. Dercole – Politecnico di Milano – ver. 28/01/2013 15/22

A type III example

MSFs for coupled Rössler oscillators

Note: sync is favored by rewiring/adding (for type III MSF 2/λλN drops by increasing p).

GLOBAL STABILITY OF SYNCHRONIZATION AND THE CGS METHOD Note: obviously global stability implies local stability. A “strong” assumption

Given the isolated system (f ) and the type of coupling (H ), we assume that the network of two coupled systems “globally synchronizes” for all 02 >> dd . Notes:

• it is a sort of “MSF-type-II” assumption • this must be shown for each given pair (f , H ) • it is the most difficult step, but can be easily tested numerically!

The ecological example [Belykh et al. 2009 JBD, Appendix]

• dispersion profile [ ]111diagH = (the analysis is similar for other profiles) • boundedness of solutions: it can be shown that the region of nonnegative

Notes:

• the EIG condition is similar to the MSF type-II condition ( 2/λε sd > ) • CGS avoids spectra computations and directly links sync with network topology

• the choice of ijP ’s is not unique; shortest paths do not always yield the best bound • overloaded links (involved by many ijP ’s) make sync difficult (high kz ) • adding a link with constant N can only make sync easier • the computation of kk zmax for various network topologies can be found in

COMPARISON AND EXTENSIONS General conclusion: synchronization (when possible) requires

• large coupling when connections are local (small 2λ , large kk zmax ) • small coupling when connections are global (large 2λ , small kk zmax )

MSF / CGS comparison and extensions

MSF Pros

• almost “iff” condition • easy to apply • also nonlinear (diffusive) coupling

Cons

• only local stability • less extensions available

directed and weighted nets – slightly nonidentical oscillators

CGS Pros

• global stability • more extensions available

directed and weighted nets – time-varying coupling – slightly nonidentical oscillators

Cons

• conservative “if” condition • can be difficult to apply • only linear (diffusive) coupling
