@article{Yang2002FractalsIS, title={Fractals in small-world networks with time-delay}, author={Xin-She Yang}, journal={Chaos Solitons \& Fractals}, year={2002}, volume={13}, pages={215-219} }

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…

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.

‘Small worlds’ and the evolution of virulence: infection occurs locally and at a distance

- Biology, MedicineProceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B: Biological Sciences
- 1999

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.
