This paper studies information source detection in networks under the independent cascade (IC) model. Assume the spread of information starts from a single source in a network and a complete snapshot of the network is obtained at some time. The goal is to identify the source based on the observation. We derive the maximum a posterior (MAP) estimator of the… (More)
