Abstract The small-world networks recently introduced by Watts and Strogatz [Nature 393 (1998) 440–442] have attracted much interest in studying the interesting properties of the networks without time-delay. However, a signal or influence travelling on the small-world networks often associated with time-delay features which are very common in biological and physical networks. We develop an analytical approach as well as numerical simulations to try to characterise the effect of time-delay on… 
On-off intermittency in small-world networks of chaotic maps
It is shown how the small-world topology would affect the on-off intermittency behavior and the results show that the laminar phases obey power-law distributions.
Synchronization in general complex dynamical networks with coupling delays
Complex networks have attracted increasing attention from various fields of science and engineering today. Due to the finite speeds of transmission and spreading as well as traffic congestions, a
Bifurcation control in a small-world network model via TDFC
In this paper, we analyze Hopf bifurcation phenomenon in a nonlinear small-world network model with time delay and fixing probability.By choosing time-delay as a bifurcation parameter, we obtain that
Stability and bifurcation of disease spreading in complex networks
It is shown that probability p not only determines the topological transition of the N-W small-world network model, but also dominates the stability of the local equilibria and bifurcating periodic solutions, and can be further applied to stabilize a periodic spreading behaviour onto a stable equilibrium over the network.
Effects of small world connection on the dynamics of a delayed ring network
This paper presents a detailed analysis on the dynamics of a ring network with small world connection. On the basis of Lyapunov stability approach, the asymptotic stability of the trivial equilibrium
Transition to chaos in small-world dynamical network
Abstract The transition from a non-chaotic state to a chaotic state is an important issue in the study of coupled dynamical networks. In this paper, by using the theoretical analysis and numerical
Effects of Short-Cut in a delayed Ring Network
These studies show that short-cut may be used as a simple but efficient switch to control the dynamics of a system and derive the formula to determine the direction and stability of Hopf bifurcation.
Effect of treatment measures on the epidemic dynamics in small-world networks
A nonlinear epidemic model in small-world networks with time-delay is presented to investigate the effect of treatment strength on the epidemic dynamics. Hopf bifurcation is proved to exist during
Small-world networks in geophysics
Many geophysical processes can be modelled as interconnected networks. The small-world network model has recently attracted much attention in physics and applied sciences. In this paper, we modify
Hybrid control of delay induced hopf bifurcation of dynamical small-world network
Through linear stability analysis, it is proved that by adjusting the control parameter properly, the onset of Hopf bifurcation of the controlled model can be delayed or eliminated without changing the equilibrium point of the model.

The concept of a "faraway" connection in a network is concretized by defining a far edge, which is algorithmic and independent of any external parameters such as topology of the underlying space of the network.
On the properties of small-world network models
Abstract:We study the small-world networks recently introduced by Watts and Strogatz [Nature 393, 440 (1998)], using analytical as well as numerical tools. We characterize the geometrical properties

There is one nontrivial length-scale in the small-world network model of Watts and Strogatz, analogous to the correlation length in other systems, which is well-defined in the limit of infinite system size and which diverges continuously as the randomness in the network tends to zero, giving a normal critical point in this limit.
Collective dynamics of ‘small-world’ networks
Simple models of networks that can be tuned through this middle ground: regular networks ‘rewired’ to introduce increasing amounts of disorder are explored, finding that these systems can be highly clustered, like regular lattices, yet have small characteristic path lengths, like random graphs.
Small-World Networks: Evidence for a Crossover Picture
Watts and Strogatz [Nature (London) 393, 440 (1998)] have recently introduced a model for disordered networks and reported that, even for very small values of the disorder $p$ in the links, the
Mean-field solution of the small-world network model.
A mean-field solution for the average path length and for the distribution of path lengths in the small-world network model is presented, which is exact in the limit of large system size and either a large or small number of shortcuts.

It is shown that this ability of the pathogen to infect distant individuals in a spatially structured host population leads to the evolution of a more virulent pathogen, suggesting that if the world is getting ‘smaller’ (as populations become more connected) diseases may evolve higher virulence.
