The dynamics of Kuramoto oscillators is investigated in terms of the exact response theory based on the Dissipation Function, which has been introduced in the field of nonequilibrium molecular dynamics.

Abstract

The dynamics of Kuramoto oscillators is investigated in terms of the exact response theory based on the Dissipation Function, which has been introduced in the field of nonequilibrium molecular dynamics. While linear response theory is a cornerstone of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, it does not apply, in general, to systems undergoing phase transitions. Indeed, even a small perturbation may in that case result in a large modification of the state. An exact theory is instead expected to handle such situations. The Kuramoto dynamics, which undergoes synchronization transitions, is thus investigated analytically and numerically as a testbed for the exact theory mentioned above. A comparison between the two approaches shows how the linear theory fails, while the exact theory yields the correct response.
