Title: Explosive synchronization coexists with classical synchronization in the Kuramoto model

Abstract

Explosive synchronization has recently been reported in a system of adaptively coupled Kuramoto oscillators, without any conditions on the frequency or degree of the nodes. Here, we find that, in fact, the explosive phase coexists with the standard phase of the Kuramoto oscillators. We determine this by extending the mean-field theory of adaptively coupled oscillators with full coupling to the case with partial coupling of a fraction f. This analysis shows that a metastable region exists for all finite values of f > 0, and therefore explosive synchronization is expected for any perturbation of adaptively coupling added to the standard Kuramoto model. We verify this theory with GPU-accelerated simulations on very large networks (N ∼ 10{sup 6}) and find that, in fact, an explosive transition with hysteresis is observed for all finite couplings. By demonstrating that explosive transitions coexist with standard transitions in the limit of f → 0, we show that this behavior is far more likely to occur naturally than was previously believed.

  • Colossal magnetoresistance, whereby the application of a magnetic field reduces the resistivity of a manganite by orders of magnitude, is generally believed to occur because of coexisting phases. Development of a complete theory to explain the phenomenon requires that the exact nature of these phases be known. We used resonant elastic soft x-ray scattering to examine the superlattice order that exists in La{sub 0.35}Pr{sub 0.275}Ca{sub 0.375}MnO{sub 3} above and below the Curie temperature. By measuring the resonance profile of the scattered x-rays at different values of q, we disentangle the contributions of orbital order and antiferromagnetism to the scattering signalmore » above the Curie temperature. Below the Curie temperature, we see no signal from orbital order, and only antiferromagnetism coexists with the dominant ferromagnetic metallic phase.« less
  • When salinity, or an equivalent variable, is increased, microemulsions generally undergo orderly transitions from a lower- to middle- to upper-phase. Even though the significance of such multiphase behavior has been well recognized in the design of surfactant flood processes, their quantitative nature in terms of the molecular structures of the surfactant lipophile, hydrophile, and the oil and brine salinity has not been fully understood. A theory of lower- and upper-phase microemulsions that gives reasonable predictions of their interfacial tensions (IFT's) and phase behavior is presented. In the theory, the surfactant monomers adsorbed at oil/brine interface cause the interface to bendmore » as a result of an imbalance between the hydrophile/brine interaction on the one hand and lipophile/oil interaction on the other. With sufficient imbalance, high local curvature causes small drops of one phase to disperse into the other. In addition, interactions between these drops are taken into account for the microemulsion equilibrium. The theory also offers a possibility of being able to describe the hydrophile/ lipophile-balanced state (optimal salinity state of Healy and Reed/sup 1/) in terms of the tendency of surfactant layer at the oil/brine interface to bend.« less
  • This paper presents a new method for analysis of frequency synchronization of lossless power networks whose sources are frequency-droop controlled inverters. Unlike most existing approaches, our method focuses on the interaction between inverters and the network to provide new physical insight into how those interactions create frequency synchronization. We introduce two structure-preserving models of such a network (one bus-oriented and one line-oriented), and show that frequency synchronization corresponds to convergence to an equilibrium of these models. We derive a necessary condition for existence of such equilibria, and determine a simple test for their local stability. Finally, we introduce a sufficientmore » condition for frequency synchronization of such networks, and show that it consists of a set of local criteria which can each be determined from local measurements.« less
  • The three-dimensional motions in a tidally distorted binary component when the initial degree of nonsynchronism is small is studied. A boundary layer analysis is used to investigate the mechanism by which this large-scale transient flow tends to sychronize the axial motion of the gaseous body with its orbital motion. The formation of an Ekman-type suction layer is found to induce a large-scale flow of matter within the practically inviscid interior of the star. Detailed calculations show that this time-dependent advection of matter and angular momentum brings effective synchronization within a time that is much shorter than those associated with othermore » mechanisms. 22 refs.« less
