- TITLE: Oscillators as systems and synchrony as a design principle
- AUTHORS: R. Sepulchre
- ABSTRACT: The paper presents an expository survey
of ongoing research by the author on a system theory for oscillators. Oscillators
are regarded as open systems that can be interconnected to robustly stabilize
ensemble phenomena characterized by a certain level of
synchrony. The first part of the paper provides examples of design (stabilization)
problems in which synchrony plays an important
role. The second part of the paper shows that dissipativity theory provides
an interconnection theory for oscillators.
- STATUS: To appear in the proceedings of the ACTRA workshop
