Synchronization in a Kuramoto Mean Field Game


The classical Kuramoto model is studied in the setting of an infinite horizon mean field game. The system is shown to exhibit both synchronization and phase transition. Incoherence below a critical value of the interaction parameter is demonstrated by the stability of the uniform distribution. Above this value, the game bifurcates and develops self-organizing time homogeneous Nash equilibria. As interactions become stronger, these stationary solutions become fully synchronized. Results are proved by an amalgam of techniques from nonlinear partial differential equations, viscosity solutions, stochastic optimal control and stochastic processes.
