Human activities increasingly take place in online environments, providing novel opportunities for relating individual behaviors to population-level outcomes. In this paper, we introduce a simple generative model for the collective behavior of millions of social networking site users who are deciding between different software applications. Our model(More)
From transportation networks to complex infrastructures, and to social and communication networks, a large variety of systems can be described in terms of multiplexes formed by a set of nodes interacting through different networks (layers). Multiplexes may display an increased fragility with respect to the single layers that constitute them. However, so far(More)
Bootstrap percolation is a simple but nontrivial model. It has applications in many areas of science and has been explored on random networks for several decades. In single-layer (simplex) networks, it has been recently observed that bootstrap percolation, which is defined as an incremental process, can be seen as the opposite of pruning percolation, where(More)

In multiplex networks with a large number of layers, the nodes can have different activities, indicating the total number of layers in which the nodes are present. Here we model multiplex networks with heterogeneous activity of the nodes and we study their robustness properties. We introduce a percolation model where nodes need to belong to the giant(More)
Multiplex networks describe a large variety of complex systems, including infrastructures, transportation networks, and biological systems. Most of these networks feature a significant link overlap. It is therefore of particular importance to characterize the mutually connected giant component in these networks. Here we provide a message passing theory for(More)
Many modern network applications, including sensor networks and MANETs, have dynamic topologies that reflect processes occurring in the outside world. These dynamic processes are a challenge to traditional information dissemination techniques, as the appropriate strategy changes according to the changes in topology. We show how network dynamics can be(More)
k-core percolation is an extension of the concept of classical percolation and is particularly relevant to understanding the resilience of complex networks under random damage. A new analytical formalism has been recently proposed to deal with heterogeneous k-cores, where each vertex is assigned a local threshold k(i). In this Letter we identify a binary(More)
k-core percolation is a percolation model which gives a notion of network functionality and has many applications in network science. In analyzing the resilience of a network under random damage, an extension of this model is introduced, allowing different vertices to have their own degree of resilience. This extension is named heterogeneous k-core(More)
