Dynamics of a network of interacting phase oscillators with dynamic couplings

We investigate dynamical states formed in a network of coupled phase oscillators in which strength of interactions between oscillators evolve dynamically depending on their relative phases. The feature of the system is co-evolution of coupling weights and states of elements. It is ascertained that depending on the parameters the network exhibit several types of behavior: globally synchronized state, two-cluster and multi-cluster states, various synchronized states with a fixed phase relationship between oscillators and desynchronized state.
