Synchronization of chimera states in multiplex networks of logistic maps — Marius Winkler, •Jakub Sawicki, Iryna Omelchenko, Anna Zakharova, and Eckehard Schöll — Institute of Theoretical Physics, Technische Universität Berlin, Germany
Complex networks consisting of several interacting layers allow for remote synchronization of distant layers via an intermediate relay layer. We extend the notion of relay synchronization to chimera states, and study the scenarios of relay synchronization in a three-layer network of logistic maps, where each layer has a nonlocal coupling topology. Varying the coupling strength in the inter-and intra-layer connections, we observe various complex spatio-temporal patterns of coexisting coherent and incoherent domains, i.e., chimera states, in the outer network layers. Special regimes where only the coherent domains of chimeras are synchronized, and the incoherent domains remain desynchronized, as well as transitions between different synchronization regimes are analyzed.
