An intriguing approach to increasing throughput, lowering latency, extending network coverage and reducing load on infrastructure is wireless content sharing via mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). The potential efficacy of multi-hop MANET content diffusion is heavily influenced by small-scale patterns of mobility and content demand; a topic about which(More)
Opportunistic wireless content sharing via Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) can increase throughput, lower latency, extend network coverage and reduce load on infrastructure. While the benefits of content diffusion clearly depend on the underlying movement dynamics and content demand, the impact of these factors on diffusion remains largely unexplored. We(More)
Temporal contact networks are studied to understand dynamic spreading phenomena such as communicable diseases or information dissemination. To establish how spatiotemporal dynamics of nodes impact spreading potential in colocation contact networks, we propose "inducement-shuffling" null models which break one or more correlations between times, locations(More)
Parasite-specific antibodies protect against blood-stage Plasmodium infection. However, in malaria-endemic regions, it takes many months for naturally-exposed individuals to develop robust humoral immunity. Explanations for this have focused on antigenic variation by Plasmodium, but have considered less whether host production of parasite-specific antibody(More)
