The manner in which deterministic nonlinear dynamical systems synchronize differs significantly from the analogous phenomenon in stochastic systems. In this brief review, we discuss the basic issues pertaining to synchrony in the presence of stochasticity. This issue has gained in importance in recent years in part due to the study of finite systems. In particular, biological processes at the cellular and sub cellular level are subject to large fluctuations and nevertheless exhibit significant temporal correlations over a wide range of time-scales. The emergence and maintenance of stochastic synchrony is thus of fundamental importance, and we discuss some illustrative cases.
