We present a model of network formation where entering nodes find other nodes to link to both completely at random and through search of the neighborhoods of these randomly met nodes. We show that this model exhibits the full spectrum of features that have been found to characterize large socially generated networks. Moreover, we derive the distribution of(More)

INTRODUCTION The Chief Medical Officer's 2008 annual report highlighted the importance of simulation in medical training. Simulator development has focused on increasing authenticity and fidelity. Development has not necessarily been guided by evidence for educational improvement. On reviewing 34 years of literature, Issenberg et al identified ten features(More)
—Civilian and military networks are continually probed for vulnerabilities. Cyber criminals, and autonomous botnets under their control, regularly scan networks in search of vulnerable systems to co-opt. Military and more sophisticated adversaries may also scan and map networks as part of reconnaissance and intelligence gathering. This paper focuses on(More)
In recent years, heightened security concerns have prompted increased interest in radiation portal monitors, instruments capable of detecting, and in some cases identifying, gamma-ray and neutron-emitting radioactive material passing through them. Along with efficient and reliable physical detectors, such monitors need software capable of analyzing the(More)

Failure of critical national infrastructures can result in major disruptions to society and the economy. Understanding the criticality of individual assets and the geographic areas in which they are located is essential for targeting investments to reduce risks and enhance system resilience. Within this study we provide new insights into the criticality of(More)
