Abstract : In this article, we investigate the dynamical robustness in a network of relaxation oscillators. In particular, we consider a network of diffusively coupled Van der Pol oscillators to explore the aging transition phenomena. Our investigation reveals that the mechanism of aging transition in a network of Van der Pol oscillator is quite different from that of typical sinusoidal oscillators such as Stuart-Landau oscillators. Unlike sinusoidal oscillators, the order parameter does not follow the second-order phase transition. Rather we observe an abnormal phase transition of the order parameter due to sudden unbounded trajectories at a critical point. We call it a dangerous aging transition. We provide details bifurcation analysis of such abnormal phase transition. We show that the boundary crisis of a limit-cycle oscillator is at the helm of such a dangerous aging transition.
