Epidemic dynamics on metapopulation networks with node2vec mobility

  title={Epidemic dynamics on metapopulation networks with node2vec mobility},
  author={Lingqi Meng and N. Masuda},
Metapopulation models have been a powerful tool for both theorizing and simulating epidemic dynamics. In a metapopulation model, one considers a network composed of subpopulations and their pairwise connections, and individuals are assumed to migrate from one subpopulation to another obeying a given mobility rule. While how different mobility rules affect epidemic dynamics in metapopulation models has been much studied, there have been relatively few efforts on systematic comparison of the… Expand

Spreading Processes in Multiplex Metapopulations Containing Different Mobility Networks
A theoretical framework for the study of spreading processes in structured metapopulations, with heterogeneous agents, subjected to different recurrent mobility patterns is proposed, where nodes would correspond to geographical areas and layers account for the mobility patterns of agents of the same class.

The Scaling of Human Contacts and Epidemic Processes in Metapopulation Networks
The results show that the scaling properties of human interactions can significantly affect dynamical processes mediated by human contacts such as the spread of diseases, ideas and behaviors. Expand
Epidemic modeling in metapopulation systems with heterogeneous coupling pattern: theory and simulations.
It is shown that along with the usual single population epidemic threshold the metapopulation network exhibits a global threshold for the subpopulation invasion, and an explicit analytic expression for the invasion threshold is found that determines the minimum number of individuals traveling among subpopulations in order to have the infection of a macroscopic number of subpopulation.

Effects of diffusion rates on epidemic spreads in metapopulation networks
It is often useful to represent the infectious dynamics of mobile agents by metapopulation models. In such a model, metapopulations form a static network, and individuals migrate from oneExpand
Invasion threshold in structured populations with recurrent mobility patterns.
A metapopulation model in which subpopulations are connected through heterogeneous fluxes of individuals in which the mobility process among communities takes into account the memory of residence of individuals and is incorporated with the classical susceptible-infectious-recovered epidemic model within each subpopulation. Expand
Epidemic spread on interconnected metapopulation networks.
This analysis provides a basic framework for better understanding of epidemic behavior in related transportation systems as well as for better control of epidemics by guiding human mobility patterns. Expand
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.

Critical regimes driven by recurrent mobility patterns of reaction–diffusion processes in networks
Reaction–diffusion processes1 have been widely used to study dynamical processes in epidemics2–4 and ecology5 in networked metapopulations. In the context of epidemics6, reaction processes areExpand
Intervention threshold for epidemic control in susceptible-infected-recovered metapopulation models
The theoretical results reveal that the intervention threshold depends on the human mobility network and the mobility rate, and it is shown that an intervention targeted to high-degree patches is more effective for epidemic control than a random intervention. Expand
Epidemic spreading in heterogeneous networks with recurrent mobility patterns.
A discrete-time Markov chain method is proposed to model susceptible-infected-susceptible epidemic dynamics in heterogeneous networks and finds that the dominations of different types of residences might reverse when mobility probability varies for some networks. Expand
