On the complete phase synchronization for the Kuramoto model in the mean-field limit
Pages: 1775 – 1786
We study the Kuramoto model for coupled oscillators. For the case of identical natural frequencies, we give a new proof of the complete frequency synchronization for all initial data; extending this result to the continuous version of the model, we manage to prove the complete phase synchronization for any non-atomic measure-valued initial datum. We also discuss the relation between the boundedness of the entropy and the convergence to an incoherent state for the case of non identical natural frequencies.
