  author={Alexey Medvedev and J{\'a}nos Kert{\'e}sz},
Topological aspects, like community structure, and temporal activity patterns, like burstiness, have been shown to severly influence the speed of spreading in temporal networks. We study the influence of the topology on the susceptible-infected (SI) spreading on time stamped communication networks, as obtained from a dataset of mobile phone records. We consider city level networks with intraand inter-city connections. The networks using only intra-city links are usually sparse, where the… CONTINUE READING
