Around Average Behavior: 3-lambda Network Model

  title={Around Average Behavior: 3-lambda Network Model},
  author={Milos Kudelka and Eliska Ochodkova and Sarka Zehnalova},
The analysis of networks affects the research of many real phenomena. The complex network structure can be viewed as a network's state at the time of the analysis or as a result of the process through which the network arises. Research activities focus on both and, thanks to them, we know not only many measurable properties of networks but also the essence of some phenomena that occur during the evolution of networks. One typical research area is the analysis of co-authorship networks and their…

Sampling as a Method of Comparing Real and Generated Networks

The use of sampling methods and a network generator to assess the degree of similarity between real and generated networks and also properties of their small samples is compared.



The map equation

It is shown that different methods highlight different aspects of a network's structure and that the the sort of information that the authors seek to extract about the system must guide us in their decision.

Complex networks with scale-free nature and hierarchical modularity

This study introduces an important property of the nodes, which is called mediating capacity, that is generic to many networks and shows that this property of nodes provides an explanation for the simultaneous occurrence of the observed scale-free structure and hierarchical modularity in many networked systems.

Time varying networks and the weakness of strong ties

A mobile call dataset is analysed and a simple statistical law is found that characterize the temporal evolution of users' egocentric networks that provides the counterintuitive evidence that strong ties may have a negative role in the spreading of information across networks.

Temporal Networks

Self-similarity of complex networks

A power-law relation is identified between the number of boxes needed to cover the network and the size of the box, defining a finite self-similar exponent to explain the scale-free nature of complex networks and suggest a common self-organization dynamics.

Graphs over time: densification laws, shrinking diameters and possible explanations

A new graph generator is provided, based on a "forest fire" spreading process, that has a simple, intuitive justification, requires very few parameters (like the "flammability" of nodes), and produces graphs exhibiting the full range of properties observed both in prior work and in the present study.

Statistical mechanics of complex networks

A simple model based on these two principles was able to reproduce the power-law degree distribution of real networks, indicating a heterogeneous topology in which the majority of the nodes have a small degree, but there is a significant fraction of highly connected nodes that play an important role in the connectivity of the network.

A simple model clarifies the complicated relationships of complex networks

This work finds that a simple model based on optimisation can produce many traits, including scale-free, small-world, ultra small- world, Delta-distribution, compact, fractal, regular and random networks.

Emergence of Multiplex Communities in Collaboration Networks

This paper proposes a model to grow multiplex networks based on two mechanisms of intra and inter-layer triadic closure which mimic the real processes by which collaborations evolve and contributes to a better understanding of the principles driving the evolution of social networks.
