Title  Synchronisation of Diffusely Coupled Oscillators

The synchronization of complex networks can be observed in a wide range of engineered and biological systems, from electric power networks to the human brain. Synchronization in a neuronal network is highly essential to the proper functioning of the brain. However, synchronization of the brain network is detrimental during tremors like epilepsy and Parkinson's disease. We leverage the Master Stability Function (MSF) method to study the stability of the synchronous manifold of coupled oscillators. We will also compare the MSF method to a contraction based method.
