We study the two-particle annihilation reaction A+B→∅ on interconnected scale-free networks, using different interconnecting strategies. We explore how the mixing of particles and the process evolution are influenced by the number of interconnecting links, by their functional properties, and by the interconnectivity strategies in use. We show that the reaction rates on this system are faster than what was observed in other topologies, due to the better particle mixing that suppresses the… Expand

Spontaneous repulsion in the A+B→0 reaction on coupled networks
The logarithmic slowing down in tx is identified to be the result of a spontaneous mechanism of repulsion between the reactants A and B due to the interactions taking place at the networks' interface, and numerically how this spontaneous repulsion effect depends on the topology of the underlying networks.

A new framework for dynamical models on multiplex networks
This work introduces a family of models of multiplex processes motivated by dynamical applications and investigates the properties of their spectra both theoretically and computationally, and uses their spectral results to compute their rates of convergence. Expand
An ensemble perspective on multi-layer networks
Using a diffusive process that evolves on a multi-layer network, this work analyzes how the speed of diffusion depends on the aggregate characteristics of both intra- and inter-layer connectivity. Expand
Higher-Order Networks in Complex Systems: Temporality and Interconnectivity
The focus of this thesis is the expansion of classical approaches in network theory that allow to overcome some of the limitations imposed by oversimplifications and provide higher-order models that take into account additional information of complex systems, in particular the aspects of temporality and interconnectivity.

The value of peripheral nodes in controlling multilayer networks
The controllability of a two-layer network, where driver nodes can be chosen randomly only from one layer, is analyzed and it is found that the controllable part of the network is larger when choosing low w nodes to connect the two layers. Expand

Complex Networks: Structure, Robustness and Function
This chapter discusses random network models, which are based on the Erdos-Renyi models, and their application in the context of complex networks, where distances in scale-free networks are small and distances in complex networks are large. Expand

I am writing with a simple plea to balance the voluminous articles about treatment in your journal with a modicum of information about nature and caring effects to rekindle the perception of physicians as healers, not only treaters, who relish the gifts of nature, and foster the humanistic aspect of medicine that has thrived for millennia.
