Springer Complexity
Springer Complexity is a publication program, cutting across all traditional disciplines
of sciences as well as engineering, economics, medicine, psychology and computer
sciences, which is aimed at researchers, students and practitioners working in the field
of complex systems.ComplexSystemsare systems that comprisemany interactingparts
with the ability to generate a new quality of macroscopic collective behavior through
self-organization, e.g., the spontaneous formation of temporal, spatial or functional
structures. This recognition, that the collective behavior of the whole system cannot be
simply inferred from the understanding of the behavior of the individual components,
has led to various new concepts and sophisticated tools of complexity. The main
concepts and tools – with sometimes overlapping contents and methodologies – are
the theories of self-organization, complex systems, synergetics, dynamical systems,
turbulence, catastrophes, instabilities, nonlinearity, stochastic processes, chaos, neural
networks, cellular automata, adaptive systems, and genetic algorithms.

The topics treated within Springer Complexity are as diverse as lasers or fluids in
physics, machine cutting phenomena of workpieces or electric circuits with feedback
in engineering, growth of crystals or pattern formation in chemistry, morphogenesis in
biology, brain function in neurology, behavior of stock exchange rates in economics, or
the formation of public opinion in sociology. All these seemingly quite different kinds
of structure formation have a number of important features and underlying structures
in common. These deep structural similarities can be exploited to transfer analytical
methods and understanding from one field to another. The Springer Complexity pro-
gram therefore seeks to foster cross-fertilization between the disciplines and a dialogue
between theoreticians and experimentalists for a deeper understanding of the general
structure and behavior of complex systems.

The program consists of individual books, books series such as “Springer Series
in Synergetics”, “Institute of Nonlinear Science”, “Physics of Neural Networks”, and
“Understanding Complex Systems”, as well as various journals.

6.6 The Phase-Locked State of N Neurons. Two Delay Times 117

We introduce the new variable x by means of

φ̇ = c+ x(t); c = C/γ (6.90)

so that (6.85) is transformed into

ẋ(t) + γx(t) = A1f(φ(t− τ1)) +A2f(φ(t− τ2)) . (6.91)

In the following we first assume that the r.h.s. is a given function of time t.
Because of the δ-function character of f , we distinguish between the following
four cases, where we incidentally write down the corresponding solutions of

I : tn + τ

1 < t < tn + τ

2 : x(t) = e

−γ(t−tn−τ1)x(tn + τ

1 + ) , (6.92)

II : tn + τ

2 ∓ : x(tn + τ

2 + ) = x(tn + τ

2 − ) +A2 , (6.93)

III: tn + τ

2 < t < tn+1 + τ

1 : x(t) = e


2)x(tn + τ

2 + ) , (6.94)

IV: tn+1 + τ

1 ± : x(tn+1 + τ

1 + ) = x(tn+1 + τ

1 − ) +A1 . (6.95)

Combining the results (6.92)–(6.95), we find the following recursion relation

x(tn+1 + τ

1 + ) = e

−γ∆x(tn + τ

1 + ) + e

−γ(∆+τ ′1−τ

2)A2 +A1 . (6.96)

Under the assumption of a steady state, we may immediately solve (6.96)
and obtain

x(tn+1 + τ

1 + ) =

1− e−γ∆

)−1 (
A1 + e

−γ(∆+τ ′1−τ


. (6.97)

The only unknown quantity is ∆. To this end, we require, as usual,


φ̇dt = 2π , (6.98)

i.e. that φ increases by 2π. In order to evaluate (6.98) by means of (6.91), we
start from (6.91), which we integrate on both sides over time t


(ẋ(t) + γx(t))dt =


(A1f(φ(t− τ1)) +A2f(φ(t− τ2))) dt (6.99)

Because of the steady-state assumption, we have


ẋ(t)dt = x(tn+1)− x(tn) = 0 (6.100)

so that (6.99) reduces to



x(t)dt = A1 +A2 . (6.101)

Using this result as well as (6.90) in (6.98), we obtain

c∆+ (A1 +A2)/γ = 2π (6.102)

which can be solved for the time interval ∆ to yield

∆ =

(2π − (A1 +A2)/γ) . (6.103)

We can also determine the values of x(t) in the whole interval by using the
relations (6.92)–(6.95). Because the time interval ∆ must be positive, we may
suspect that ∆ = 0 or, according to (6.103),

(2π − (A1 +A2)/γ) = 0 (6.104)

represents the stability limit of the stationary phase-locked state. We will
study this relationship in Sect. 6.10.

6.7 Stability of the Phase-Locked State.
Two Delay Times*

In order to study this problem, we assume as initial conditions

φ̇j(0) = φj(0) = 0 (6.105)

and integrate (6.4) over time, thus obtaining

φ̇j(t) + γφj(t) =


J(φk(t− τ
)) + Cjt+Bj(t) , (6.106)

where J has been defined in (6.19). We include the fluctuating forces, put

Bj(t) =


F̂j(σ)dσ , (6.107)

and assume that Cj in (6.7) is time-independent. The phase-locked state

φ̇(t) + γφ(t) =


J(φ(t− τ
)) + Ct . (6.108)
