Bond Percolation in Small-World Graphs with Power-Law Distribution

  title={Bond Percolation in Small-World Graphs with Power-Law Distribution},
  author={Luca Becchetti and Andrea E. F. Clementi and Francesco Pasquale and Luca Trevisan and Isabella Ziccardi},
Full-bond percolation with parameter p is the process in which, given a graph, for every edge independently, we keep the edge with probability p and delete it with probability 1 − p . Bond percolation is motivated by problems in mathematical physics and it is studied in parallel computing and network science to understand the resilience of distributed systems to random link failure and the spread of information in networks through unreliable links. Full-bond percolation is also equivalent to…

Sharp Thresholds for a SIR Model on One-Dimensional Small-World Networks
We study epidemic spreading according to a Susceptible-Infectious-Recovered (for short, SIR) network model known as the Reed-Frost model, and we establish sharp thresholds for two generative models

An exact solution of the model for both site and bond percolation is given, including the position of thePercolation transition at which epidemic behavior sets in, the values of the critical exponents governing this transition, the mean and variance of the distribution of cluster sizes below the transition, and the size of the giant component (epidemic) above the transition.

There is one nontrivial length-scale in the small-world network model of Watts and Strogatz, analogous to the correlation length in other systems, which is well-defined in the limit of infinite system size and which diverges continuously as the randomness in the network tends to zero, giving a normal critical point in this limit.
Tight Bounds for Influence in Diffusion Networks and Application to Bond Percolation and Epidemiology
This paper points out that, in general networks, the sub-critical regime behaves in $O(\sqrt{n})$ where $n$ is the size of the network, and that this upper bound is met for star-shaped networks.
Percolation on finite graphs and isoperimetric inequalities
Consider a uniform expanders family Gn with a uniform bound on the degrees. It is shown that for any p and c>0, a random subgraph of Gn obtained by retaining each edge, randomly and independently,
Are randomly grown graphs really random?
It is concluded that grown graphs, however randomly they are constructed, are fundamentally different from their static random graph counterparts.
The Diameter of a Scale-Free Random Graph
We consider a random graph process in which vertices are added to the graph one at a time and joined to a fixed number m of earlier vertices, where each earlier vertex is chosen with probability

The graph diameter for the graph reduced to a box of side L scales like (log L)Δ+o(1) where Δ−1 := log2(2d/s) and the diameter grows about as fast as the typical graph distance between two vertices at distance L.
Lévy Walk Navigation in Complex Networks: A Distinct Relation between Optimal Transport Exponent and Network Dimension
We investigate, for the first time, navigation on networks with a Lévy walk strategy such that the step probability scales as pij ~ dij–α, where dij is the Manhattan distance between nodes i and j,
Thresholds for virus spread on networks
This work characterise how the size of the population that eventually becomes infected depends on the network topology, and shows that if the ratio of cure to infection rates is larger than the spectral radius of the graph, and the initial infected population is small, then the finalinfected population is also small in a sense that can be made precise.
