Electronic databases, from phone to e-mails logs, currently provide detailed records of human communication patterns, offering novel avenues to map and explore the structure of social and communication networks. Here we examine the communication patterns of millions of mobile phone users, allowing us to simultaneously study the local and the global(More)
We construct a connected network of 3.9 million nodes from mobile phone call records, which can be regarded as a proxy for the underlying human communication network at the societal level. We assign two weights on each edge to reflect the strength of social interaction, which are the aggregate call duration and the cumulative number of calls placed between(More)
Social networks are organized into communities with dense internal connections, giving rise to high values of the clustering coefficient. In addition, these networks have been observed to be assortative, i.e., highly connected vertices tend to connect to other highly connected vertices, and have broad degree distributions. We present a model for an(More)
Modern-day computers are characterized by a striking contrast between the processing power of the CPU and the latency of main memory accesses. If the data processed is both large compared to processor caches and sparse or high-dimensional in nature, as is commonly the case in complex network research, the main memory latency can become a performace(More)
