Detecting phase synchronization by localized maps: Application to neural networks
Universität Potsdam, Institut für Physik Am Neuen Palais 10 - D-14469 Potsdam, Germany
Accepted: 20 December 2006
We present an approach which enables to state about the existence of phase synchronization in coupled chaotic oscillators without having to measure the phase. This is done by observing the oscillators at special times, and analyzing whether this set of points is localized. In particular, we show that this approach is fruitful to analyze the onset of phase synchronization in chaotic attractors whose phases are not well defined, as well as, in networks of non-identical spiking/bursting neurons connected by chemical synapses.
