Enhancing synchronizability of weighted dynamical networks using betweenness centrality

By considering the eigenratio of the Laplacian of the connection graph as a synchronizability measure, we propose a procedure for weighting dynamical networks to enhance their synchronizability. The method is based on node and edge betweenness centrality measures and is tested on artificially constructed scale-free, Watts- Strogatz, and random networks as well as on some real-world graphs. It is also numerically shown that the same procedure could be used to enhance the phase synchronizability of networks of nonidentical oscillators.
