Short summary
Earthquake sequencing is an intriguing research topic and the dynamics involved are complex. For directed graphs that represent earthquake sequencing, the Kuramoto model yields synchronization. Inclusion of non-local effects evokes the occurrence of chimera states or the co-existence of synchronous and asynchronous behavior among earthquake zones. It is the chaotic dynamics of them resulting in certain patterns that we begin to see in the sequence of seismic events with a very simple model.
