We investigate the synchronization of stochastic oscillations in biochemical models by calculating the complex coherence function within the linear noise approximation. The method is illustrated on a simple example and then applied to study the synchronization of chemical concentrations in social amoeba. The degree to which variation of rate constants in different cells and the volume of the cells affects synchronization of the oscillations is explored and the phase lag calculated. In all cases the analytical results are shown to be in good agreement with those obtained through numerical simulations. © 2013 American Physical Society.
