Populations of interacting oscillators and circadian rhythms

, : Populations of interacting oscillators and circadian rhythms. Journal of Theoretical Biology 22(3): 418-436

This paper considers a population of interacting oscillators which simulate the main features of circadian rhythms. It is shown that under strong coupling the oscillators oscillate at only a fraction of the frequency that each one of them would oscillate if they were not interconnected. This suggests a possible mechanism for obtaining 24-hour periods from biochemical oscillators whose period is only a few minutes. The frequency of the population is a function of the number of the individual oscillators, and this gives an additional degree of freedom to the system.
