Complex Network Synchronizability: The Effect of Coupling Strength
In this paper, the effect of the coupling strength to the complex network synchronizability is investigated. For a given network with identical node dynamics, it is shown that the coupling strength among the nodes is one of key factors influencing the network synchronizability besides the network inner linking matrix and the eigenvalues of the network topological matrix. It is point that if the synchronized region is an unbounded sector, for achieving synchronizability, the coupling strength must be greater than or equal to the minimum coupling strength, and with the increasing of the coupling strength, network synchronizability is improved; if is a bounded sector, for achieving network synchronizability, the coupling strength must be in a certain range, and the larger coupling strength does not necessarily indicate better synchronizability.
