: Collective phenomena emerge from the interaction of natural or artificial units with a complex organization. The interplay between structural patterns and dynamics might induce functional clusters that, in general, are different from topological ones. In biological systems, like the human brain, the overall functionality is often favored by the interplay between connectivity and synchronization dynamics, with functional clusters that do not coincide with anatomical modules in most cases.

Multiscale Information Propagation in Emergent Functional Networks
TLDR
This work analyzes the emergent functional state of fungal networks, identifying their functional modules at different scales and demonstrating the importance of functional modules for the information content of networks, quantified in terms of network spectral entropy. Expand
Multiscale Information Propagation in Emergent Functional Networks
TLDR
This work introduces the multiscale emergent functional state, which can be represented as a network where links encode the flow exchange between the nodes, calculated using diffusion processes on top of the network. Expand
Pattern invariance for reaction-diffusion systems on complex networks
TLDR
This work opens up a new perspective on the multiple possibilities for identifying the family of discrete supports that instigate equivalent dynamical responses on a multispecies reaction-diffusion system. Expand
Accurate detection of hierarchical communities in complex networks based on nonlinear dynamical evolution.
TLDR
The basic principle of exploiting dynamical evolution to uncover hidden community organizations at different scales represents a "game-change" type of approach to addressing the problem of community detection in complex networks. Expand
Scale-variant topological information for characterizing complex networks
TLDR
This study studies the shape of these point sets over variable timescales that provide scale-variant topological information, to understand the varying topological scales and the complex interactions in the network. Expand
Unfolding the multiscale structure of networks with dynamical Ollivier-Ricci curvature
Describing networks geometrically through low-dimensional latent metric spaces has helped design efficient learning algorithms, unveil network symmetries and study dynamical network processes.Expand
Unfolding the multiscale structure of networks with dynamical Ollivier-Ricci curvature
TLDR
It is shown that the evolution of the curvature distribution exhibits gaps at characteristic timescales indicating bottleneck-edges that limit information spreading, and derives geometric modularity to find multiscale communities based on deviations from constant network curvature in generative and real-world networks, significantly outperforming most previous methods.

Opinion Divergence Reveals the Hierarchical and Overlapping Community Structure in Networks
TLDR
The divergence of agents' opinions is studied to reveal its connections with hierarchy and overlap in the modular structure and a new method is proposed to identify hierarchical and overlapping communities, whose robustness and efficiency are validated via experiments on real and artificial networks. Expand
Multiscale dynamical embeddings of complex networks
TLDR
A time-dependent dynamical similarity measure between nodes is proposed, which quantifies the effect a node-input has on the network and induces an embedding that can be employed for several analysis tasks. Expand
Entrograms and coarse graining of dynamics on complex networks
TLDR
The entrogram is used to investigate how specific macro-scale connection patterns in the state-space transition graph of the original dynamics result in desirable properties of coarse grained descriptions, and provides a fresh perspective on the interplay between structure and dynamics in networks.

I am writing with a simple plea to balance the voluminous articles about treatment in your journal with a modicum of information about nature and caring effects to rekindle the perception of physicians as healers, not only treaters, who relish the gifts of nature, and foster the humanistic aspect of medicine that has thrived for millennia.

There is, I think, something ethereal about i —the square root of minus one, which seems an odd beast at that time—an intruder hovering on the edge of reality. Expand
