                         distinct subsystems into given communication channels influence 
                         the overall ensemble behavior? We discuss this question in the 
                         context of complex networks of nonidentical interacting 
                         oscillators. Three types of connection configurations are 
                         considered: Similar, Dissimilar, and Neutral patterns. These 
                         different groups correspond, respectively, to oscillators alike, 
                         distinct, and indifferent relative to their neighbors. To 
                         construct such scenarios we define a vertex-weighted graph 
                         measure, the total dissonance, which comprises the sum of the 
                         dissonances between all neighbor oscillators in the network. Our 
                         numerical simulations show that the more homogeneous a network, 
                         the higher tend to be both the coupling strength required for 
                         phase locking and the associated final phase configuration spread 
                         over the circle. On the other hand, the initial spread of partial 
                         synchronization occurs faster for Similar patterns in comparison 
                         to Dissimilar ones, while neutral patterns are an intermediate 
                         situation between both extremes.",
