In this paper we study the problem of stability for one of the most popular models of coupled phase oscillators, the Kuramoto model. The Kuramoto model is used to describe the phenomenon of collective synchronization, in which an enormous system of oscillators spontaneously locks to a common frequency although the oscillators have distinct natural frequencies. In the paper we consider the stability of the Kuramoto model of coupled oscillators with identical natural frequency and provide a stability analysis of phase difference equilibrium. The stability of the phase difference equilibrium make it possible to apply the Kuramoto model in pattern recognition.
