    Abstract

    In this article, we present and evaluate an epidemic scheme for the synchronization of coupled Kuramoto oscillators in communication networks. It addresses the problem of efficiently providing globally synchronous time epochs in complex, dynamic Peer-to-Peer network topologies. Rather than the usual model of continuously coupled nodes, a discretized version with sporadic message-based couplings to nearest neighbors is considered. This article empirically studies the emergence of coherent oscillator states for different network topologies, coupling functions, and sporadic coupling intensities. It further investigates the protocol's minimum bandwidth requirements in small-world network topologies. Synchronization resilience under the effect of random perturbations is studied for two coupling variations. Finally, the potential utilization of the scheme for a local inference of global network topology characteristics is discussed.
