Effects of noise on the outer synchronization of two unidirectionally coupled complex dynamical networks

Yongzheng Sun, Donghua Zhao


We study the effect of noise on the outer synchronization between two unidirectionally coupled complex networks and find analytically that outer synchronization could be achieved via white-noise-based coupling. It is also demonstrated that, if two networks have both conventional linear coupling and white-noise-based coupling, the critical deterministic coupling strength between two complex networks for synchronization transition decreases with an increase in the intensity of noise. We provide numerical results to illustrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the theoretical results.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
