Linear systems analysis of the giant component of the gap junction network.

(a). Survival function of the eigenvalue spectrum (blue). The algebraic connectivity, , is and the spectral radius, , is . A time scale associated with the decay constant is also given. (b). Scatterplot showing the norm and decay constant of the eigenmodes of the Laplacian. The fastest modes from Figure 3 in Text S4 are marked in red. The sparsest and slowest modes, most amenable to biological analysis, are located in the lower-left corner of the diagram. (c). Eigenmode of Laplacian corresponding to (marked green in panel (b)). (d). Eigenmode of Laplacian corresponding to (marked cyan in panel (b)).
