Abstract

We show that a complex network of phase oscillators may display interfaces between domains (clusters) of synchronized oscillations. The emergence and dynamics of these interfaces are studied for graphs composed of either dynamical domains (influenced by different forcing processes), or structural domains (modular networks). The obtained results allow us to give a functional definition of overlapping structures in modular networks, and suggest a practical method able to give information on overlapping clusters in both artificially constructed and real world modular networks.
