Junior et al. (J Appl Probab 48:624–636, 2011) studied a model to understand the spread of a rumour. Their model consists of individuals situated at the integer points of the line $$\mathbb {N}$$N. An individual at the origin 0 starts a rumour and passes it to all individuals in the interval $$[0,R_0]$$[0,R0], where $$R_0$$R0 is a non-negative random variable. An individual located at i in this interval receives the rumour and transmits it further among individuals in $$[i, i+R_i]$$[i,i+Ri…

A trust model for spreading gossip in social networks: a multi-type bootstrap percolation model
A multi-type bootstrap percolation model, which is called T-Bootstrap Percolation (T-BP), is introduced, and its implications when applied to rumour spread, fake news and marketing strategies are described.

Rumor Processes on $$\mathbb {N}$$N and Discrete Renewal Processes
Two rumor processes on N, the dynamics of which are related to an SI epidemic model with long range transmission, are studied, showing that, in each model, the position of the spreaders on N can be related to a suitably chosen discrete renewal process.
Rumor Processes in Random Environment on $\mathbb{N}$ and on Galton–Watson Trees
The aim of this paper is to study rumor processes in random environment. In a rumor process a signal starts from the stations of a fixed vertex (the root) and travels on a graph from vertex to
Rumor processes on N
We study four discrete time stochastic systems on $\bbN$ modeling processes of rumour spreading. The involved individuals can either have an active or a passive role, speaking up or asking for the
The Rumor Percolation Model and Its Variations
The study of rumor models from a percolation theory point of view has gained a few adepts in the last few years. The persistence of a rumor, which may consistently spread out throughout a population
On the coverage of space by random sets
Let ξ1, ξ2,… be a Poisson point process of density λ on (0,∞) d , d ≥ 1, and let ρ, ρ1, ρ2,… be i.i.d. positive random variables independent of the point process. Let C := ⋃ i≥1 {ξ i + [0,ρ i ] d }.

For a model of a rumour, first given a non-rigorous treatment by Maki and Thompson, it is shown that the proportion of the population never hearing the rumour converges in probability to 0.203 as the
Critical Power for Asymptotic Connectivity in Wireless Networks
In wireless data networks each transmitter's power needs to be high enough to reach the intended receivers, while generating minimum interference on other receivers sharing the same channel. In

Random networks for communication : from statistical physics to information systems
The results suggest that phase transitions in infinite networks are more random than in the case of finite networks, where information flow in random networks is more orderly.
Random Geometric Graphs
This chapter discusses probabilistic ingredients, the largest component for a binomial process, and connectedivity and the number of components in a graph-like model.
