Title: Inter-layer synchronization in multiplex networks of identical layers

Abstract

Inter-layer synchronization is a distinctive process of multiplex networks whereby each node in a given layer evolves synchronously with all its replicas in other layers, irrespective of whether or not it is synchronized with the other units of the same layer. We analytically derive the necessary conditions for the existence and stability of such a state, and verify numerically the analytical predictions in several cases where such a state emerges. We further inspect its robustness against a progressive de-multiplexing of the network, and provide experimental evidence by means of multiplexes of nonlinear electronic circuits affected by intrinsic noise and parameter mismatch.

  • Reliability, reliability with repair, and availability concepts for specific configurations of four identical element systems, including series, parallel, and multiplex systems, are developed using a continuous time Markov process. As the number of systems components increases, the Markov approach leads to complex sets of differential equations that require computer solution. The multiplex system availability, reliability with repair, and reliability are superior to that of both the parallel and series systems. Multiplexing offers the opportunity for reliability improvement in the design of nuclear safety systems.
  • We examine synchronization between identical chaotic systems. A rigorous criteria is presented which, if satisfied, guarantees that the coupling produces linearly stable synchronous motion. The criteria can also be used to design couplings that lead to stable synchronous motion. Analytical results from a dynamical system are presented. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • We numerically study a directed small-world network consisting of attractively coupled, identical phase oscillators. While complete synchronization is always stable, it is not always reachable from random initial conditions. Depending on the shortcut density and on the asymmetry of the phase coupling function, there exists a regime of persistent chaotic dynamics. By increasing the density of shortcuts or decreasing the asymmetry of the phase coupling function, we observe a discontinuous transition in the ability of the system to synchronize. Using a control technique, we identify the bifurcation scenario of the order parameter. We also discuss the relation between dynamics andmore » topology and remark on the similarity of the synchronization transition to directed percolation.« less
  • This paper studies chaos-based data gathering scheme in multiple sink wireless sensor networks. In the proposed scheme, each wireless sensor node has a simple chaotic oscillator. The oscillators generate spike signals with chaotic interspike intervals, and are impulsively coupled by the signals via wireless communication. Each wireless sensor node transmits and receives sensor information only in the timing of the couplings. The proposed scheme can exhibit various chaos synchronous phenomena and their breakdown phenomena, and can effectively gather sensor information with the significantly small number of transmissions and receptions compared with the conventional scheme. Also, the proposed scheme can flexiblymore » adapt various wireless sensor networks not only with a single sink node but also with multiple sink nodes. This paper introduces our previous works. Through simulation experiments, we show effectiveness of the proposed scheme and discuss its development potential.« less
