From the flashes of fireflies to Josephson junctions and power infrastructure, networks of coupled phase oscillators provide a powerful framework to describe synchronization phenomena in many natural and engineered systems. Most real-world networks are under the influence of noisy, random inputs, potentially inhibiting synchronization. While noise is unavoidable, here we show that there exist optimal noise patterns which minimize desynchronizing effects and even enhance order. Specifically… Expand

Coherent Dynamics Enhanced by Uncorrelated Noise.

- Computer Science, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 2020

It is shown that uncorrelated noise can in fact enhance synchronization when the oscillators are coupled, and that the same effect can be harnessed in engineered systems. Expand

Competitive interplay of repulsive coupling and cross-correlated noises in bistable systems.

- Medicine
- Chaos
- 2021

It is demonstrated that the competitive interplay of noise and coupling gives rise to phenomena ranging from the usual synchronized state to the uncommon anti-synchronized state where the coupled bistable systems are pushed to different wells, and the robustness of synchronization obtained in the idealized scenario of perfectly correlated noise is shed.

Network desynchronization by non-Gaussian fluctuations.

- Physics, Computer Science
- Physical review. E
- 2019

A general theory for inertial oscillator network desynchronization by non-Gaussian noise is built and it is shown that higher moments of noise enter at specific powers of coupling: either speeding up or slowing down the rate exponentially depending on how noise statistics match the statistics of a network's slowest mode.

Optimal noise-canceling networks

- Computer Science, Mathematics
- Physical review letters
- 2018

This work investigates the design, efficiency, and topology of noise-canceling networks and finds that when the input fluctuations become more correlated in space or time, optimal network architectures become sparser and more hierarchically organized, resembling the vasculature in plants or animals.

Design of oscillator networks with enhanced synchronization tolerance against noise.

- 2012

The optimization process using the stochastic Markov Chain Monte Carlo method with replica exchange to design networks of phase oscillators with increased tolerance against noise finds that the synchronization of a network can be increased up to 40%, as compared to that of the randomly generated networks, when the optimization is applied.

On the topology of synchrony optimized networks of a Kuramoto-model with non-identical oscillators.

- Mathematics, Medicine
- Chaos

It is demonstrated that synchrony optimized networks can be generated much more cost efficiently by minimization of an energy-like quantity E and subsequent random rewires to control the average path length, and are characterized by a balance between two opposing structural properties. Expand

Abstract We review the behavior of theoretical models of excitable systems driven by Gaussian white noise. We focus mainly on those general properties of such systems that are due to noise, and… Expand

Influence of noise on the synchronization of the stochastic Kuramoto model.

- Physical review. E, Statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics
- 2007

The Kuramoto model of globally coupled phase oscillators subject to Ornstein-Uhlenbeck and non-Gaussian colored noise is considered and the dependence of the threshold as well as the maximum degree of synchronization on the correlation time and the strength of the noise is studied. Expand

Synchronization by uncorrelated noise: interacting rhythms in interconnected oscillator networks

- Physics, Medicine
- Scientific Reports
- 2018

It is shown that for strong, inhibitory coupling rhythms can become synchronized by noise, in contrast to stochastic synchronization, this new mechanism synchronizes the rhythms even if the noisy inputs to different oscillators are completely uncorrelated. Expand

It is proved that the multi-rate Kuramoto model is locally topologically conjugate to a first-order Kuramoto models with scaled natural frequencies, and necessary and sufficient conditions for almost global phase synchronization and local frequency synchronization are presented. Expand
