Efficient behavior of small-world networks.
TLDR
We introduce the concept of efficiency of a network as a measure of how efficiently it exchanges information. Expand

Complex networks: Structure and dynamics
Coupled biological and chemical systems, neural networks, social interacting species, the Internet and the World Wide Web, are only a few examples of systems composed by a large number of highlyExpand

Error and attack tolerance of complex networks
TLDR
We consider and compare the results for two different network topologies: the Erdos–Renyi random graph and the Barabasi–Albert scale-free network. Expand

Economic small-world behavior in weighted networks
TLDR
We introduce the concept of economic small worlds, that formalizes the idea of networks that are “cheap” to build, and nevertheless efficient in propagating information. Expand

Model for cascading failures in complex networks.
TLDR
We show that the breakdown of a single node is sufficient to collapse the efficiency of the entire system if the node is among the ones with largest load. Expand

The Network Analysis of Urban Streets: A Primal Approach
TLDR
We show that, in the MCA primal approach, much more than in the dual approach, some centrality indices nicely capture the ‘skeleton’ of the urban structure that impacts so much on spatial cognition. Expand

The network analysis of urban streets: A dual approach
TLDR
The application of the network approach to the urban case poses several questions in terms of how to deal with metric distances, which kind of graph representation to use, what kind of measures to investigate, how to deepen the correlation between measures of the structure and dynamics on the network, what are the possible contributions from the GIS community.

NextPlace: A Spatio-temporal Prediction Framework for Pervasive Systems
TLDR
We present NextPlace, a novel approach to location prediction based on nonlinear time series analysis of the arrival and residence times of users in relevant places. Expand

Structural measures for multiplex networks.
TLDR
In this paper we present a general framework to describe and study multiplex networks, whose links are either unweighted or weighted. Expand

Structural properties of planar graphs of urban street patterns.
Recent theoretical and empirical studies have focused on the structural properties of complex relational networks in social, biological, and technological systems. Here we study the basic propertiesExpand
