Abstract

The alternative theory of existence of cluster structures in lattices of dynamical systems (oscillators) is proposed. This theory is based on representation of structures as a result of classical (full) synchronization of structural objects called cluster oscillators (C-oscillators). Different types of C-oscillators, whose number is defined by the geometrical properties of lattices (dimensions and forms) are introduced. The completeness of all types of C-oscillators for lattices of different dimensions is proven. This fact provides a full set of types of cluster structures that can be realized in a given lattice. The solution is derived without the necessity to verify the existence of invariant (cluster) manifolds. The principles of coupling of C-oscillators into the cluster structures and principles of transformations of such structures are described. Having interpreted the processes of structuring in terms of the classical synchronization of C-oscillators, one can solve the problem of fusion of lattices with pre-described properties at the engineering level.
