Cluster synchronization analysis of complex dynamical networks by input-to-state stability
Cluster synchronization is an interesting issue in complex dynamical networks with community structure. In this paper, we study cluster synchronization of complex networks with non-identical systems by input-to-state stability. Some sufficient conditions that ensure cluster synchronization of complex networks are provided. We show that the cluster synchronization is difficult to achieve if there are some links among different clusters. The analysis is then extended to the case where the outer coupling strengths are adaptive. Finally, numerical simulations are given to validate our theoretical analysis.
