Control of Collective Dynamics in a Network of Bistable Time-Delay Systems Coupled via the Mean Field

Background and Objectives: The object of our study is a network of identical bistable time-delayed feedback systems coupled via the mean field and driven by an external harmonic signal. The mean field that provides the global coupling of time-delay systems has its own delay time, which allows one to take into account the final speed of signal propagation and processing in the medium through which the oscillators are connected.
