Eigenvalue decomposition as a generalized synchronization cluster analysis

Allefeld, C. ORCID: 0000-0002-1037-2735, Mueller, M. & Kurths, J. (2007). Eigenvalue decomposition as a generalized synchronization cluster analysis. International Journal of Bifurcation and Chaos, 17(10), pp. 3493-3497. doi: 10.1142/s0218127407019251


We report results on the synchronization of two organ pipes positioned side by side. Special attention is put on the synchronization of the higher harmonics. As possible explanation, classical theory provides the amplitude death as explanation for the reduction to almost silence of two coupled organ pipes. With our measurements we exclude this scenario. The higher harmonics show a behavior in perfect coincidence with synchronization theory. In addition we investigate the dependence on the coupling of two pipes by varying their distance. In the context of synchronization in networks, a new synchronization effect is observed for extended systems with two distributed, slightly different delays.
