These Departmental Seminars are for everyone in Maths. We encourage anyone interested in the subject in general, or in the particular subject of the seminar, to come along. It's a great opportunity to meet people in the Maths Department and join in with our community.

Coupled Oscillator Networks: Structure, Interactions, and Dynamics

The collective dynamics of coupled oscillatory processes govern many aspects crucial to our lives, whether it is the synchronous beating of our heart cells, collective activity of neurons in the brain, or power grid networks that operate in a stable frequency regime.

In this talk we discuss how the collective network dynamics are shaped by the network structure (what oscillator is coupled to what other oscillator) and the network interactions (how one oscillator is coupled to another). We discuss in particular how ""higher-order"" interactions, which have attracted tremendous attention in recent years, give rise to heteroclinic and chaotic dynamics.
