Efficient target strategies for contagion in scale-free networks.

Abstract

Organizations or individuals often have an incentive to target a certain number of agents to launch a contagion process effectively and efficiently, for example, sampling consumers in the diffusion of new products. We present an effective strategy for contagion in scale-free networks. The proposed strategy, hub strategy, calls for targeting mostly the… (More)
