Abstract: Currently, synchronizability of networks is mainly studied in terms of the eigen ratio of the coupling matrix, which is a pure property of network topology. In this work, we clarify that although the eigen ratio is relevant to the possible range of coupling strength for achieving synchronization, it cannot fully determine the latter. The magnitude of the eigenvalues also plays a decisive role. We emphasize that synchronizability of networks is inherently related to the local dynamics on networks. It is not appropriate to discuss synchronizability of networks without considering the specific dynamics on them. For three typical types of local dynamics, we discuss the implication of synchronizability of networks. © 2009 World Scientific Publishing Company.
