Emerging Meso- and Macroscales from Synchronization of Adaptive Networks

We consider a set of interacting phase oscillators, with a coupling between synchronized nodes adaptively reinforced, and the constraint of a limited resource for a node to establish connections with the other units of the network. We show that such a competitive mechanism leads to the emergence of a rich modular structure underlying cluster synchronization, and to a scale-free distribution for the connection strengths of the units.
