From mass extinction to cell death, complex networked systems often exhibit abrupt dynamic transitions between desirable and undesirable states. These transitions are often caused by topological perturbations (such as node or link removal, or decreasing link strengths). The problem is that reversing the topological damage, namely, retrieving lost nodes or links or reinforcing weakened interactions, does not guarantee spontaneous recovery to the desired functional state. Indeed, many of the… 

Sustaining a network by controlling a fraction of nodes

This manuscript explores, analytically and by simulations, how supporting the activity of a fraction ρ of nodes can turn an unsustainable system to be sustainable by eliminating the inactive potential stable state and presents a new sustainability phase diagram that could provide guidelines to sustain a network by external intervention and/or by strengthening the connectivity of the network.

Network resilience

This report is devoted to a comprehensive review of resilience function and regime shift of complex systems in different domains, such as ecology, biology, social systems and infrastructure, and discusses some ambiguous definitions, including robustness, resilience, and stability.

External field and critical exponents in controlling dynamics on complex networks

Dynamical processes on complex networks, ranging from biological, technological and social systems, show phase transitions between distinct global states of the system. Often, such transitions rely

The $K$-core structure of complex networks with node reinforcement

Percolation theory provides a quantitative framework to estimate and enhance robustness of complex networked systems. A typical nonstructural method to improve network robustness is to introduce

A survey on temporal network dynamics with incomplete data

This survey concentrates on the pre-processing strategies of incomplete data and overviews two categories of methods on data imputation and prediction, respectively, and summarizes various characteristic analysis methods for complex temporal networks with incomplete data.

Dynamic Multiscale Information Spillover among Crude Oil Time Series

This study investigated information spillovers across crude oil time series at different time scales, using a network combined with a wavelet transform. It can detect the oil price, which plays an

An effective and stable operation of an economic system leads to a prosperous society and sustainable world development. Unfortunately, the system faces inevitable perturbations of extreme events and



Universal resilience patterns in complex networks

The analytical results unveil the network characteristics that can enhance or diminish resilience, offering ways to prevent the collapse of ecological, biological or economic systems, and guiding the design of technological systems resilient to both internal failures and environmental changes.

Realistic control of network dynamics.

This framework permits reprogramming a network to a desired task, as well as rescuing networks from the brink of failure-which is illustrated through the mitigation of cascading failures in a power-grid network and the identification of potential drug targets in a signalling network of human cancer.

Threefold way to the dimension reduction of dynamics on networks: An application to synchronization

DART generalizes recent approaches for dimension reduction by allowing the treatment of complex-valued dynamical variables, heterogeneities in the intrinsic properties of the nodes as well as modular networks with strongly interacting communities.

Spectral Dimension Reduction of Complex Dynamical Networks

This work introduces a method that reduces any network to a simplified low-dimensional version, which can then be used to describe the collective dynamics of the original system and offers a novel framework to relate the structure of networks to their dynamics and to study the resilience of complex systems.

Universality in network dynamics

A self-consistent theory of dynamical perturbations in complex systems is developed, allowing us to systematically separate the contribution of the network topology and dynamics.

Predicting tipping points in mutualistic networks through dimension reduction

The reduced model can serve as a paradigm for understanding and predicting the tipping point dynamics in real world mutualistic networks for safeguarding pollinators and the general principle can be extended to a broad range of disciplines to address the issues of resilience and sustainability.

Collapse of resilience patterns in generalized Lotka-Volterra dynamics and beyond.

It is found that multidimensional reduction may work also for an interaction matrix with a mixture of positive and negative signs, opening up an application of the framework to food webs, neuronal networks, and social and economic interactions.

Dynamic patterns of information flow in complex networks

A measure of information flow is proposed to predict its behavior from the interplay between structure and dynamics, and predicts a family of frequently encountered dynamics where the flow of information avoids the hubs, favoring the network’s peripheral pathways.
