Abstract

We model the collective clapping of spectators by globally coupled two-mode stochastic oscillators. All distinct experimentally observable clapping modes are successfully reproduced. Surprisingly, it is found that in an extended region of the parameter space the periodicity of the collective output is strongly enhanced by the considered coupling. The model offers a realistic way to generate periodic dynamics by coupling largely stochastic units.
