Abstract:

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.
