Abstract

We investigate a non-Abelian generalization of the Kuramoto model proposed by Lohe and given by N quantum oscillators ('nodes') connected by a quantum network where the wavefunction at each node is distributed over quantum channels to all other connected nodes. It leads to a system of Schrö dinger equations coupled by nonlinear self-interacting potentials given by their correlations. We give a complete picture of synchronization results, given on the relative size of the natural frequency and the coupling constant, for two non-identical oscillators and show complete phase synchronization for arbitrary N > 2 identical oscillators. Our results are mainly based on the analysis of the ODE system satisfied by the correlations and on the introduction of a quantum order parameter, which is analogous to the one defined by Kuramoto in the classical model. As a consequence of the previous results, we obtain the synchronization of the probability and the current densities defined via the Madelung transformations.
