Exotic equilibria of Harary graphs and a new minimum degree lower bound for synchronization
Abstract© 2015 AIP Publishing LLC. This work is concerned with stability of equilibria in the homogeneous (equal frequencies) Kuramoto model of weakly coupled oscillators. In 2012 [R. Taylor, J. Phys. A: Math. Theor. 45, 1-15 (2012)], a sufficient condition for almost global synchronization was found in terms of the minimum degree-order ratio of the graph. In this work, a new lower bound for this ratio is given. The improvement is achieved by a concrete infinite sequence of regular graphs. Besides, non standard unstable equilibria of the graphs studied in Wiley et al. [Chaos 16, 015103 (2006)] are shown to exist as conjectured in that work.
