We explore the dynamical consequences of time-varying conjugate coupling in a system of nonlinear oscillators. We analyze the behavior of coupled systems with respect to the coupling switching frequency using normalized average synchronization error and average amplitude. We show that this form of time-varying interaction can induce an anomalous transition like the emergence of oscillation as well as the intermittent state with different dynamical states. This behavior is analyzed by numerical studies of specific cases of the Rössler oscillator and an ecological model of predator–prey systems.
