Network of Networks and the Climate System

This video was recorded at Kolokviji na Institutu "Jožef Stefan". Synchronization phenomena are abundant in nature, science, engineering and social life, such as in organ pipes, fireflies and even in the mechanics of bridges. But synchronization was first recognized by Christiaan Huygens in 1665 for coupled pendulum clocks; this was the beginning of nonlinear sciences. In the last two decades, this concept has been successfully extended to more complex systems, as coupled chaotic oscillators and even distributed systems as complex networks. Complex networks were first studied by Leonhard Euler in 1736 when he solved the Königsberger Brückenproblem. Recent research has revealed a rich and complicated network topology in various model systems as well as in several fields of applications, such... Show More
