Synchronization of infections spread processes in populations interacting: Modeling by lattices of cellular automata

Purpose. Study of synchronization of oscillations in ensembles of probabilistic cellular automata that simulate the spread of infections in biological populations. Method. Numerical simulation of the square lattice of cellular automata by means of the Monte Carlo method, investigation of synchronization of oscillations by time-series analisys and by the coherence function. Results. The effect has been found of synchronization of irregular oscillations, similar to the phenomenon of synchronization of chaos in dynamical systems.
