We examine the parliamentary presence data of the 2008–2012 and 2012–2016 legislatures of the Lithuanian parliament. We consider the cumulative presence series of each individual representative in the data set. These series exhibit superdiffusive behavior. We propose a modified noisy voter model as a model for the parliamentary presence. We provide detailed analysis of the anomalous diffusion of the individual agent trajectories and show that the modified model is able to reproduce the… 

Anomalous diffusion and long-range memory in the scaled voter model.

We analyze the scaled voter model, which is a generalization of the noisy voter model with time-dependent herding behavior. We consider the case when the intensity of herding behavior grows as a

Anomalous diffusion: fractional Brownian motion vs fractional Ito motion

Generalizing Brownian motion (BM), fractional Brownian motion (FBM) is a paradigmatic selfsimilar model for anomalous diffusion. Specifically, varying its Hurst exponent, FBM spans: sub-diffusion,

Understanding the Nature of the Long-Range Memory Phenomenon in Socioeconomic Systems

The group has shown that the long-range memory phenomenon can be reproduced using various Markov processes well enough to match other statistical properties of the financial markets, such as return and trading activity distributions and first-passage time distributions.

Anomalous diffusion in nonlinear transformations of the noisy voter model.

This paper shows that the original voter model exhibits a ballistic regime, and shows that numerical simulation results coincide with derived analytical approximations describing the temporal evolution of the raw moments.

Zealots in multistate noisy voter models.

It is found that the phase behavior diversifies, with up to six possible qualitatively different types of stationary states, and situations in which zealots affect the entire population, or only a fraction of agents, are analyzed, which corresponds to a single-community model with a fractional number of zealots.



Anomalous diffusion behavior in parliamentary presence.

This work examines parliamentary presence utilizing data from the sessions of the 49th-54th Brazilian Chambers of Deputies and identifies an anomalous diffusive process that corresponds to a robust superdiffusion, well identified with a ballistic regime.


The apparent diffusion coefficient is the sum of the values of the relaxation times as well as the diffusion coefficient of intracellular water protons are reduced compared with corresponding values for pure bulk water which has a low content of macromolecules.


Voter model on networks partitioned into two cliques of arbitrary sizes

The voter model is an archetypal stochastic process that represents opinion dynamics. In each update, one agent is chosen uniformly at random. The selected agent then copies the current opinion of a

Anomalous subdiffusion from subsystem symmetries

We introduce quantum circuits in two and three spatial dimensions which are classically simulable, despite producing a high degree of operator entanglement. We provide a partial characterization of

Lévy Flights and Hydrodynamic Superdiffusion on the Dirac Cone of Graphene.

It is argued that such superdiffusive dynamics of collective excitations is of more general importance to the out-of-equilibrium dynamics of quantum-critical systems.

Numerous models in opinion dynamics focus on the temporal dynamics within a single electoral unit (e.g. country). The empirical observations, on the other hand, are often made across multiple

Ants, Rationality, and Recruitment

This paper offers an explanation of behavior that puzzled entomologists and economists. Ants, faced with two identical food sources, were observed to concentrate more on one of these, but after a
