Cluster synchronization for linearly coupled complex networks

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, the cluster synchronization for an array of linearly coupled identical chaotic systems is investigated. New coupling schemes (or coupling matrices) are proposed, by which global cluster synchronization of linearly coupled chaotic systems can be realized. Here, the number and the size of clusters (or groups) can be arbitrary. Some sufficient criteria to ensure global cluster synchronization are derived. Moreover, for any given coupling matrix, new coupled complex networks with adaptive coupling strengths are proposed, which can synchronize coupled chaotic systems by clusters. Numerical simulations are finally given to show the validity of the theoretical results.
