Abstract

Maximum entropy principle (MEP) analysis with few non-zero effective interactions successfully characterizes the distribution of dynamical states of pulse-coupled networks in many fields, e.g., in neuroscience. To better understand the underlying mechanism, we found a relation between the dynamical structure, i.e., effective interactions in MEP analysis, and the anatomical coupling structure of pulse-coupled networks and it helps to understand how a sparse coupling structure could lead to a sparse coding by effective interactions. This relation quantitatively displays how the dynamical structure is closely related to the anatomical coupling structure.
