Frequency entrainment in long chains of oscillators with random natural frequencies in the weak coupling limit
(2004) In Physical Review E 70(1). Abstract
 We study oscillator chains of the form phi(k)=omega(k)+K[Gamma(phi(k1)phi(k))+Gamma(phi(k+1)phi(k))], where phi(k)is an element of[0,2pi) is the phase of oscillator k. In the thermodynamic limit where the number of oscillators goes to infinity, for suitable choices of Gamma(x), we prove that there is a critical coupling strength Kc, above which a stable frequencyentrained state exists, but below which the probability is zero to have such a state. It is assumed that the natural frequencies are random with finite bandwidth. A crucial condition on Gamma(x) is that it is nonodd, i.e.,Gamma(x)+Gamma(x)not equal0. The interest in the results comes from the fact that any chain of limitcycle oscillators can be described by equations of the... (More)
