Optimizing spatially embedded networks for synchronization

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

In this paper we consider the problem of organizing networks of spatially embedded oscillators to maximize the propensity for synchronization for limited availability of wire, needed to realize the physical connections between the oscillators. We consider two extensions of previous work (Brede, 2010b): (i) oscillators that can flexibly arrange in space during the optimization process and (ii) a generalization to weighted networks. In the first case, we discuss the emergence of spatially and relationally modular network organizations, while in the second case the emphasis of our analysis is on link heterogeneity and the particular organization of strong and weak links that facilitates synchronization in space.
