Generalized synchronization in an array of mutually (bidirectionally) coupled nonidentical chaotic oscillators is studied. Coupled Lorenz oscillators and coupled Lorenz-Rossler oscillators are adopted as our working models. With increasing the coupling strengths, the system experiences a cascade of transitions from the partial to the global generalized synchronizations, i.e., different oscillators are gradually entrained through a clustering process. This scenario of transitions reveals an intrinsic self-organized order in groups of interacting units, which generalizes the idea of generalized synchronizations in drive-response systems.
