Microresonator-based frequency combs have attracted lots of attention in the last few years due to their promising applications in telecommunications, spectroscopy and optical clocks. There has recently been significant progress made towards understanding the comb generation process in the time domain, however until now a viable frequency-domain-based explanation still eludes us. Here we present a novel approach in the frequency domain that uses the concept of collective oscillations of several adjacent modes, or "superoscillators", to describe the overall comb structure. Our results represent the first set of analytical solutions for phase-locked microcombs for both phase and amplitude.
