Title: Synchronization in complex networks

Place:   Building 28, Room 2.123, Campus Golm, Universitaet Potsdam


We study the relationship between topological scales and
dynamic time scales in complex networks. The analysis is based on the
full dynamics towards synchronization of a system of coupled
oscillators. In the synchronization process, modular structures
corresponding to well-defined communities of nodes emerge in different
time scales, ordered in a hierarchical way. The analysis also provides
a useful connection between synchronization dynamics, complex networks
topology, and spectral graph analysis.
