We investigate how knowledge percolates and clusters in a given knowledge space. We introduce a simple model of knowledge organization in which each contribution spans a certain number of items. If this contribution overlaps with others above a certain threshold, they form a cluster. A contribution can also merge clusters together. We study the growth of global knowledge and the cluster dynamics, both showing a nontrivial behavior. 



Recent Advances of Percolation Theory in Complex Networks

A very brief review of percolation theory recently developed, which includes those types of phase transitions, critical phenomena, and finite-size scaling theory, is presented.

Large-scale structure of time evolving citation networks

This paper describes three different methods of analysis for probing and understanding the large-scale structure of networks that evolve over time, in particular on citation networks, networks of references between documents such as papers, patents, or court cases.

Network science: Luck or reason

This study shows that popularity is a strong force in shaping complex network structure and dynamics, but so too is similarity, and develops a model that increases the accuracy of network-evolution predictions by considering the trade-offs between popularity and similarity.

The Evolution of Inventor Networks in the silicon Valley and Boston Regions

Analysis of all patenting inventors in the U.S. from 1975 to 2002 and interviews with key network players suggest that contingent labor mobility between established firms in Silicon Valley promoted inter-organizational networking, leading to larger inventor networks.

Anatomy of a young giant component in the random graph

The asymptotics of the diameter of the giant component for any rate of decay of ε, as well as the mixing time of the random walk on the Erdős‐Rényi random graph are inferred.
