In this work, we study the phenomenon of disordered quenching in arrays of coupled Bautin oscillators, which are the normal form for bifurcation in the vicinity of the equilibrium point when the first Lyapunov coefficient vanishes and the second one is nonzero. For particular parameter values, the Bautin oscillator is in a bistable regime with two attractors—the equilibrium and the limit cycle—whose basins are separated by the unstable limit cycle. We consider arrays of coupled Bautin oscillators and study how they become quenched with increasing coupling strength. We analytically show the existence and stability of the dynamical regimes with amplitude disorder in a ring of coupled Bautin oscillators with identical natural frequencies. Next, we numerically provide evidence that disordered oscillation quenching holds for rings as well as chains with nonidentical natural frequencies and study the characteristics of this effect.
