Synchronization phenomena is evident in a number of different processes, both natural
and artificial. The present thesis aims to investigate such phenomena by looking at what
the necessary parameters are for the modeling of such phenomena and what models that
have been proposed. The phenomena as such is then applied in the treatment of synchronizing
an audio-recording that is off-time to a metronome in 4/4 running at 120 bpm.
The thesis introduces the notion of synchronization first and foremost and then gives
background on what the necessary tools are for the scientific study of synchronization.
The background given allows one to construct a mathematical framework for modeling
synchronization and the thesis thus arrives at the Kuramoto Model. The Kuramoto
model is applied in the treatment of the audio and metronome. With a coupling strength
of K = 1 in the Kuramoto model, near-perfect synchrony is achieved immediately after
just one iteration of the model with phase-coherence = 0:9999. Changing the coupling
strength to K = 0:5, synchrony arises after 6 iterations of the model for which the process
develops smoothly. Synchrony can be achieved for any coupling strength K for this
particular problem as both audio and metronome run at an angular frequency ! = 2=s
