This proposal aims to develop a rigorous dimension reduction principle for dynamical systems coupled on complex networks by comparing the low-degree-node dynamics against a reference random dynamical system (RDS). A recent breakthrough due to Pereira, van Strien, and Tanzi proved the dimension reduction for a special class of heterogeneously coupled maps, relying crucially on global hyperbolicity properties of the network dynamics. In particular, this means that their result does not apply in power-law graphs, which constitute important examples of real-world networks. Our strategy removes the restrictive conditions of global hyperbolicity, and introduces noise to dynamics on the low-degree nodes. Specifically, we propose the following objectives.1- Merge a probabilistic argument and a topological one.2- Large-scale numerics for heterogeneously coupled hyperbolic systems.These objectives will, on the one hand, significantly extend the dimension reduction results to realistic networks including power-law and hierarchical graph models, and on the other hand, pro- vide theoretical framework for applications including reconstruction problems where the isolated dynamics are high-dimensional and possess both expanding and contracting directions.
