Abstract or Additional Information

A coupled cell system is a network of interacting dynamical systems. Coupled cell models assume that the output from each cell is important and that signals from two or more cells can be compared so that patterns of synchrony can emerge. This talk will focus on a result (joint with David Romano and Yunjiao Wang) that classifies rigid patterns of phase-shift synchrony in time-periodic solutions of coupled cell systems and on some neuroscience applications.
