Cluster synchronization in networks of structured communities
Ruiz Silva, Adriana
Barajas Ramírez, Juan Gonzalo
"We investigate the synchronization problem for a network of subnetwork with community structure. We consider a model with different levels of interconnection: At the first, strongly coupled adjacent nodes are modeled as a compact unit (CU) where connections are uniformed and undirected. A second level of connection occurs as CUs with similar dynamic behaviors from communities by weighted and undirected interactions. Finally a third level of connection, where directed and weighted connections between these communities form the entire network of subnetworks. Using the Lyapunov approach we show that cluster synchronization is possible for our network model where even though all nodes are interconnected each community achieves complete synchronization within, while the behavior between communities is not synchronized. Our main results are illustrated using numerical simulations of well-known benchmark systems."
