This work systematically investigates a large number of oscillatory network configurations that are able to describe many real systems such as electric power grids, lasers or even the heart muscle, to name but a few. The book is conceived as an introduction to the field for graduate students in physics and applied mathematics as well as being a compendium for researchers from any field of application interested in quantitative models.

From the reviews:
"The book provides a good survey of published (and some unpublished) results on synchronization in networks of coupled oscillators and excitable systems. ... The ... chapter treats some selected recent results on the impact of complex network topology (e.g., small-world and scale-free networks) on synchronization, which is a topic of great interest that has attracted many researchers in recent years." (Takashi Nishikawa, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2008 k)
"The book is composed of 14 chapters, with 221 figures and a list of 573 references. ... This excellent book is conceived as an introduction to the field for graduate students in physics and applied mathematics as well as being a compendium for researchers from any field of application interested in quantitative models." (A. A. Martynyuk, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1137 (15), 2008)
