synchronization of spatial structures

Mutual synchronization of complex structures in interacting ensembles of non-locally coupled rotators

Background and Objectives: One of the actual problems in nonlinear dynamics is the formation and interaction of complex spatial structures such as chimeras and solitary states arising in multicomponent systems. Chimera states are typical for ensembles of identical oscillators with regular, chaotic, and even stochastic behavior in a case of nonlocal interaction of the elements. They represent cluster structures, including groups of elements with synchronous and non-synchronous oscillations.
