Coupled effects of epidemic information and risk awareness on contagion
A theoretical analysis indicates that people's misjudgment caused by the delayed epidemic information leads to a higher encounter probability between the susceptible and the infected and people's self-restricted travel behavior helps reduce such an encounter probability.


Effects of City-Size Heterogeneity on Epidemic Spreading in a Metapopulation: A Reaction-Diffusion Approach
A generalized reaction-diffusion approach to epidemic spreading in a metapopulation modeled as a complex network is introduced and it is found that the heterogeneous conditions cause the epidemic threshold to be a non-trivial function of the reaction rates, the network’s topology and the cross-over population size that separates “village dynamics’ from “city dynamics”.
On the dynamical interplay between awareness and epidemic spreading in multiplex networks
The analysis of the interrelation between two processes accounting for the spreading of an epidemic, and the information awareness to prevent its infection, on top of multiplex networks reveals the phase diagram of the incidence of the epidemics and allows the evolution of the epidemic threshold depending on the topological structure of the multiplex and the inter correlation with the awareness process.
Natural human mobility patterns and spatial spread of infectious diseases
A model for spatial epidemics explicitly taking into account bidirectional movements between base and destination locations on individual mobility networks is investigated and shows that a fully stochastic system exhibits a novel threshold for the attack ratio of an outbreak that is absent in diffusion and force of infection models.
The combined effects of aging and links removal on epidemic dynamics in the Barabasi–Albert scale-free networks are studied and it is revealed that there exists a threshold pc such that for p≥pc, epidemic breaks out in the network.
Time scales of epidemic spread and risk perception on adaptive networks
Incorporating dynamic contact networks and delayed awareness into a contagion model with memory, we study the spreading patterns of infectious diseases in connected populations. It is found that the
Epidemic modeling in metapopulation systems with heterogeneous coupling pattern: theory and simulations.
Effect of the interconnected network structure on the epidemic threshold.
This work analytically derives λ(1)(A+αB) using a perturbation approximation for small and large α, the lower and upper bound for any α as a function of the adjacency matrix of the two individual networks, and the interconnections between the two and their largest eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
Theory of the Transmission of Infection in the Spread of Epidemics: Interacting Random Walkers with and Without Confinement
Analytic solutions are obtained, confirmed by numerical procedures, and shown to predict a surprising effect of confinement, and effective infection rates are calculated and shown how to use them in complex systems consisting of dense populations.
Invasion threshold in heterogeneous metapopulation networks.
An explicit expression of the threshold that sets a critical value of the diffusion/mobility rate below, which the epidemic is not able to spread to a macroscopic fraction of subpopulations is provided.
Safety-Information-Driven Human Mobility Patterns with Metapopulation Epidemic Dynamics
It is shown that the critical threshold depends on mobility in such a way that personal execution of safe moves unexpectedly promotes the global spread of a disease, while unsafe moves counterintuitively cause a locally, relatively small outbreak size.
