In science:

Since the effective potential is confining, non-synchronous molecules with insufficient energy to reach the top of the potential must oscillate about the synchronous molecule.
Preparation and manipulation of molecules for fundamental physics tests
Perhaps surprisingly, two nearby rotating helices are seen to not synchronize if the helices are perfectly rigid [238], and some mechanical flexibility is necessary for flow-based synchronization to occur [239].

Call this kind of set a synchronization and let S be the set of all synchronizations.
Quantitative testing semantics for non-interleaving
Consider the synchronization s k u represented by the graph in Fig. 1, where actions are hidden after they have synchronized. A scheduler resolves the choices of actions in the two states reachable in one probabilistic step from the initial state of the graph s k u, thus yielding a fully probabilistic system.
Testing Reactive Probabilistic Processes
We first point out that, under the condition that a test “knows” the current set of actions on which it can synchronize with the system (i.e. the menu of actions-candidates for synchronization), there exists a statistical procedure to estimate the result of testing a system with a given test.
Testing Reactive Probabilistic Processes
Namely, when the process and the test synchronize on an action, the resulting transition is labeled with a “weighting factor”, containing information about the way this synchronization happened.
Testing Reactive Probabilistic Processes
Synchronicity of causally independent events/systems is up to the observer. A set of synchronous events/systems crossing the whole circuit is a leaf of a foliation, as in the TomonagaSchwinger quantum relativistic approach.
Physics as quantum information processing
Indeed, to synchronize distant clocks we need to know a speed, and to measure a speed we need synchronized clocks.

An important problem about oscillators networks is to determine conditions for having complete synchronization that is the stability of the synchronous state.
Nonlinear Synchronization on Connected Undirected Networks
The first one gives a condition on synchronization strength for having a global synchronization of oscillators.
Nonlinear Synchronization on Connected Undirected Networks
In Section 3, after precising the assumptions on the synchronization term, main results, that is conditions for having complete synchronization of the system of oscillators, are presented.
Nonlinear Synchronization on Connected Undirected Networks
The complete synchronization of all oscillators can occur whatever their initial states are, in this case, the synchronization is said global; otherwise it is said local.
Nonlinear Synchronization on Connected Undirected Networks
Two results for proving the complete synchronization are then proposed: the first one gives a global criterion and the second one deals with local synchronization, that is when the tra jectories lie in a neighborhood of the synchronization variety.
Nonlinear Synchronization on Connected Undirected Networks
The system is thus perfectly synchronized as the planet - which is already in synchronization and the star always show each other the same sides.

However, for a very dissipative M-dwarf and a Jupiter mass planet the stellar synchronization timescale is short enough to lead to a perfect synchronized system (as we will discuss in Section 4.3.2).
