Complex Ginzburg-Landau equation on networks and its non-uniform dynamics

  • Hiroya Nakao
Part of the following topical collections:
  1. Resilient Power Grids and Extreme Events


Dynamics of the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation describing networks of diffusively coupled limit-cycle oscillators near the Hopf bifurcation is reviewed. It is shown that the Benjamin-Feir instability destabilizes the uniformly synchronized state and leads to non-uniform pattern dynamics on general networks. Nonlinear dynamics on several network topologies, i.e., local, nonlocal, global, and random networks, are briefly illustrated by numerical simulations.
