Opinion formation on dynamic networks: identifying conditions for the emergence of partisan echo chambers
This work presents and validate the conditions for the emergence of partisan echo chambers, characterizing the transition from cohesive communities with a consensus to divisive networks with splitting opinions and applies the model to voting records of the US House of Representatives over a timespan of decades to understand the influence of underlying psychological and social factors on increasing partisanship.
The Role of Network Analysis in Industrial and Applied Mathematics
This commentary discusses the role of network analysis in industrial and applied mathematics, and gives several examples of network science in industry, focusing on discussing a physical-applied-mathematics approach to the study of networks.
A modified Ising model of Barabási–Albert network with gene-type spins
This work systematically evaluates the translation of computational techniques from solid-state physics to network models that closely resemble biological networks and develops specific translational rules to tackle problems unique to living systems on the basis of apparent asymmetry between biological states.
Quasistationary Distribution for the Invasion Model on a Complete Bipartite Graph
The Invasion Model on the complete bibartitle graph was introduced and studied by physicists as a rudimentary model for opinion dynamics on complex networks. We identify the limit of the
Competition of Social Opinions on Two Layer Networks
A competition model is studied on interconnected networks with two-layer opinions, where the first layer is opinion formation and the second layer is decision making, which shows that both internal and external links play a vital role for consensus.

The Asymptotic Theory of Extreme Order Statistics
Abstract. Let X j denote the life length of the j th component of a machine. In reliability theory, one is interested in the life length Z n of the machine where n signifies its number of components.

The neutral theory of molecular evolution
The molecular clock hypothesis was used to propose that humans and apes diverged approximately 5 million years ago and found that there was a constant rate of amino acid substitution over time.
