We investigate collective behaviors of coupled phase oscillators on an extended network model which can develop two fundamentally different topologies, scale-free or exponential. Each component of the network is assumed as an oscillator and that each interacts with the others following the Kuramoto model. The order parameters that measure synchronization of phases and frequencies are computed by means of dynamic simulations. It is found that system's collective behaviors exhibit strong dependence on local events: addition of new links will improve network synchronizability while rewiring of links will decrease synchronization. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.
