Higher Order Temporal Analysis of Global Terrorism Data

  title={Higher Order Temporal Analysis of Global Terrorism Data},
  author={Madelyn Dunning and Sumit Purohit},
Temporal networks are a fundamental and flexible way of describing the activities, relationships, and evolution of any complex system. Global terrorism is one of the biggest concerns of recent times. It is also an example of a temporal network that evolves over time. Graph analytics can be used to explore salient properties of the terrorism network to understand its modus operandi, which can be used by the global alliance of security and government entities to form a co-ordinated response to…

Various aspects of terrorist networks which can be illuminated through applications of non-linear dynamical systems modeling to terrorist network structures are explored.

Social Network Analysis as an Approach to Combat Terrorism: Past, Present, and Future Research

Social network analysis can be used to understand terrorist networks, inform U.S. homeland security policy, and form the basis of a more effective counter-measure to net war.

Introducing the Global Terrorism Database

The Global Terrorism Database (GTD) is described, a previously unavailable open source data base that includes some 70,000 domestic and international incidents since 1970 is described and descriptive statistics on the contents of this new resource are provided.

Destabilizing Terrorist Networks

Analysis reveals that trying to destabilize a cellular distributed network using tactics designed for hierarchies is likely to be ineffective and a set of tools and an approach to assessing destabilization strategies in a decision context that takes these difficulties in to account and provides analysts with guidance in assessing alternative destabilization tactics is needed.

Temporal Graph Generation Based on a Distribution of Temporal Motifs

This work presents a temporal-motif based approach to generate synthetic temporal graph datasets and shows results from three real-world use cases, and shows that this approach can generate high fidelity synthetic graph.

  • 2017
This paper will illustrate how complex network theory can be applied to modern smart grids in structural vulnerability assessment, cascading blackouts, grid synchronization, network reconfigurations, distributed droop control, pinning control for micro-grid autonomous operations, and effective grid expansions.

Multi-Channel Large Network Simulation Including Adversarial Activity

A methodology to employ a suite of generation tools to produce realistic large-scale synthetic activity graphs with embed an adversarial activity in multi-channel networks to improve the adversarial signal.

Structure and evolution of online social networks

A simple model of network growth is presented, characterizing users as either passive members of the network; inviters who encourage offline friends and acquaintances to migrate online; and linkers who fully participate in the social evolution of thenetwork.
