Complex synchronization: Chemical oscillators communicating by exchange of intermediate species through the surrounding solution form clusters of individuals with synchronized oscillations that are out of phase with other clusters. The system evolves from unsynchronized oscillations at low number density n to four, three, two, and finally one cluster with increasing n (see picture).
