Mandelbrot found that financial time series had fat tails and long dependence. Over the years a variety of empirical work has found these two properties to hold in many different financial time series. There are two alternative ways to model fat tails and long dependence. One, a stochastic process that is generated by the subordination of a levy process to(More)
Treatment as Prevention (TasP) using directly-acting antivirals has been advocated for Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) in people who inject drugs (PWID), but treatment is expensive and TasP's effectiveness is uncertain. Previous modelling has assumed a homogeneously-mixed population or a static network lacking turnover in the population and injecting partnerships.(More)
In many of the large-scale physical and social complex systems phenomena fat-tailed distributions occur, for which different generating mechanisms have been proposed. In this paper, we study models of generating power law distributions in the evolution of large-scale taxonomies such as Open Directory Project, which consist of websites assigned to one of(More)
In the context of web-scale taxonomies such as Mozilla and Yahoo! 1 directories, previous works have shown the existence of power law distribution in the size of the categories for every level in the taxonomy. In this work, we analyse how such high-level semantics can be leveraged to evaluate accuracy of hierarchical classifiers which automatically assign(More)
