Autonomous Modeling, Statistical Complexity and Semi-annealed Treatment of Boolean Networks
TLDR
Autonomous Modeling, Statistical Complexity and Semi-annealed Treatment of Boolean Networks is presented, which describes how Boolean networks are modeled and how these models can be modified for distributed systems. Expand
Complex Structures and Behavior from Elementary Adaptive Network Automata
TLDR
Investigating an extremely simple instance of this computational paradigm of adaptive networks finds particular rules and parameters for which power-law statistics emerge, which provides evidence that this fundamental framework is able to provide robust network structure evolution towards a critical state, an issue of great current interest. Expand
Network observability transitions.
TLDR
A new type of percolation transition is shown, here termed a network observability transition, which is solved analytically for the configuration model and demonstrates a dual role of the network's community structure, which both facilitates optimal measurement placement and renders the networks substantially more sensitive to "observability attacks". Expand
Information dynamic spectrum characterizes system instability toward critical transitions
TLDR
A novel information dynamic spectrum framework and a probabilistic light cone method to automate the analysis and suggest that early detecting critical transitions of synchronizations, sudden collapse, and exponential growth is possible. Expand
Meta-rules for Networks
This article proposes conceptual approaches for both the design and implementation of network linkages, that dependent on context, should respect interlinking topological and parametric constraints,Expand
Dynamical Systems on Networks: A Tutorial
TLDR
This tutorial should be helpful for junior and senior undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers from mathematics, physics, and engineering who seek to study dynamical systems on networks but who may not have prior experience with graph theory or networks. Expand
Control of complex networks requires both structure and dynamics
TLDR
This work studies Boolean network ensembles of network motifs as well as three models of biochemical regulation, demonstrating that structure-only methods both undershoot and overshoot the number and which sets of critical variables best control the dynamics of these models. Expand
Group Measures and Modeling for Social Networks
Social network modeling is generally based on graph theory, which allows for study of dynamics and emerging phenomena. However, in terms of neighborhood, the graphs are not necessarily adapted toExpand

According to asset pricing theory, a stock’s expected returns are determined by its exposure to systematic risk. In this paper, we propose a new method for analyzing the interaction effects amongExpand

Explosive Percolation in Random Networks
TLDR
It is shown that incorporating a limited amount of choice in the classic Erdös-Rényi network formation model causes its percolation transition to become discontinuous. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that heterogeneity plays an ambiguous role in determining a system's stability: increasingly heterogeneous thresholds make the system more vulnerable to global cascades; but anincreasingly heterogeneous degree distribution makes it less vulnerable. Expand
Network synchronization landscape reveals compensatory structures, quantization, and the positive effect of negative interactions
TLDR
It is shown that networks with best complete synchronization, least coupling cost, and maximum dynamical robustness, have arbitrary complexity but quantized total interaction strength, which constrains the allowed number of connections. Expand
Dynamical Processes on Complex Networks
TLDR
A new and recent account presents a comprehensive explanation of the effect of complex connectivity patterns on dynamical phenomena in a vast number of everyday systems that can be represented as large complex networks. Expand
Discovering Network Structure Beyond Communities
TLDR
The results of applying the proposed exploratory method for discovering groups of nodes characterized by common network properties suggest the possibility that most group structures lurk undiscovered in the fast-growing inventory of social, biological, and technological networks of scientific interest.

The role of the airline transportation network in the prediction and predictability of global epidemics
TLDR
A stochastic computational framework for the forecast of global epidemics that considers the complete worldwide air travel infrastructure complemented with census population data and defines a set of quantitative measures able to characterize the level of heterogeneity and predictability of the epidemic pattern.

Epidemic spreading in scale-free networks.
TLDR
A dynamical model for the spreading of infections on scale-free networks is defined, finding the absence of an epidemic threshold and its associated critical behavior and this new epidemiological framework rationalizes data of computer viruses and could help in the understanding of other spreading phenomena on communication and social networks. Expand
Catastrophic cascade of failures in interdependent networks
TLDR
This work develops a framework for understanding the robustness of interacting networks subject to cascading failures and presents exact analytical solutions for the critical fraction of nodes that, on removal, will lead to a failure cascade and to a complete fragmentation of two interdependent networks. Expand
Critical phenomena in complex networks
TLDR
A wide range of critical phenomena in equilibrium and growing networks including the birth of the giant connected component, percolation, $k$-core percolations, phenomena near epidemic thresholds, condensation transitions,critical phenomena in spin models placed on networks, synchronization, and self-organized criticality effects in interacting systems on networks are mentioned.

Explosive Percolation Is Continuous
TLDR
A mathematical proof shows that in many models of the growth of network connectivity, phase transitions are continuous, although related models in which the number of nodes sampled may grow with the network size can indeed exhibit explosive percolation. Expand
