Abstract:
We will review some results about the relation between dynamical and spectral properties of complex networks.
From the dynamical point of view we will focus on the time the whole population needs to be completely
synchronized and how partial synchronization of more tightly connected clusters (communities or modules)
appears. This properties can be related with the eigenvalues of the the Laplacian matrix of the network.
