Complex networks are becoming an integral tool for our understanding of an enormous variety of natural and artificial systems. A number of human-designed network generation procedures have been proposed that reasonably model specific real-life phenomena in structure and dynamics. Consequently, breakthroughs in genetics, medicine, epidemiology, neuroscience,(More)
Efficient network design and optimization of transportation and distribution systems has significant economic and service efficiency implications for both the public and private sectors. We propose a new solution based on a particle swarm optimization (PSO) for the uncapacitated single allocation hub location problem (USAHLP). Although various(More)
STUDY DESIGN Prospective, multicenter, single-blind, randomized, controlled clinical study. OBJECTIVE To investigate outcomes associated with repairing the anulus fibrosus after lumbar discectomy for the surgical management of herniated nucleus pulposus. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA In patients undergoing discectomy, the incidence of reherniation ranges(More)
Complex networks have attracted a large amount of research attention, especially over the past decade, due to their prevalence and importance in our daily lives. Numerous human-designed models have been proposed that aim to capture and model different network structures, for the purpose of improving our understanding the real-life phenomena and its dynamics(More)
The pathways that relay sensory information within the brain form a network of connections, the precise organization of which is unknown. Communities of neurons can be discerned within this tangled structure, with inhomogeneously distributed connections existing between cortical areas. Classification and modelling of these networks has led to advancements(More)
