In science:

But φiλ and φi,aρπ3 are strongly mutually synchronous regularity preserving, so it follows that La,i,λ is synchronously regular.
Automatic Rees matrix semigroups over categories
Hence, La is a finite union of synchronously regular binary relations, and by Lemma 2.1(iv) is synchronously regular as required.
Automatic Rees matrix semigroups over categories
If bσ is an identity arrow, then it follows easily from the fact that K= is synchronously regular that Kb is synchronously regular, and we are done.
Automatic Rees matrix semigroups over categories
From our argument in the proof of Theorem 4.3, we know that φiλ is strongly synchronous regularity preserving, and we know that K= is synchronously regular, so it follows that each Li,λ is synchronously regular.
Automatic Rees matrix semigroups over categories
Hence, L= ∩ (A+ × A+ ) is a finite union of synchronously regular binary relations, and by Lemma 2.1(iv) is synchronously regular as required.
Automatic Rees matrix semigroups over categories
L × {z}) = {(z , z )} so that the first four components of the union are synchronously regular. = ∩ (A+ × A+) is synchronously regular.
Automatic Rees matrix semigroups over categories
Since φ is also synchronous regularity preserving, it follows that each Kλ,i,b is synchronously regular.
Automatic Rees matrix semigroups over categories
We know that L is regular and that L= is synchronously regular, so it follows by Lemma 2.1(ii), (iii) and (iv) and the fact that φ is strongly synchronous regularity preserving that K ′ c ∩ ({x} × K ) is synchronously regular.
Automatic Rees matrix semigroups over categories

Automatic Rees matrix semigroups over categories
We study the model for the mean field case of allto-all coupling, deriving results for the initial onset of synchronization as the coupling or nonlinearity increase, and conditions for the existence of the completely synchronized state when all the oscillators evolve with the same frequency.
Synchronization by Reactive Coupling and Nonlinear Frequency Pulling
Synchronization is also important in biological systems where the collective behaviors in populations of animals, such as the synchronized flashing of fireflies or the coherent oscillations observed in the brain, serve as examples.
Synchronization by Reactive Coupling and Nonlinear Frequency Pulling
In the large N limit, we could use a nonzero value of the order parameter at each time as the basic criterion for a synchronized state. A synchronized periodic state with frequency Ω would then have Ψ(t) = R eiΩt with R, Ω constants.
Synchronization by Reactive Coupling and Nonlinear Frequency Pulling
For a synchronized periodic state we could require that the time average (cid:10)e−iΩ(N )tΨ(cid:11)t scales as N as the number of oscillators changes for some frequency Ω(N ) that becomes constant for large enough N , and use this as a measure of the synchronization.
Synchronization by Reactive Coupling and Nonlinear Frequency Pulling
