We propose a weighted planar stochastic lattice (WPSL) formed by the random sequential partition of a plane into contiguous and non-overlapping blocks and we find that it evolves following several non-trivial conservation laws, namely is independent of time ?n, where xi and yi are the length and width of the ith block. Its dual on the other hand, obtained by replacing each block with a node at its centre and the common border between blocks with an edge joining the two vertices, emerges as a… Expand

Scale-free coordination number disorder and multifractal size disorder in weighted planar stochastic lattice
The square lattice is perhaps the simplest cellular structure. In this work, however, we investigate the various structural and topological properties of the kinetic and stochastic counterpart of theExpand

The results suggest that the percolation on WPSL belong to a separate universality class than on all other planar lattices. Expand
Dynamic scaling, data-collapse and self-similarity in Barabási and Albert networks
In this paper, we show that if each node of the Barabasi–Albert (BA) network is characterized by the generalized degree q, i.e. the product of their degree k and the square root of their respectiveExpand
Kinetic-exchange-like opinion dynamics in complex networks: roles of the dimensionality and local interaction topology
We study a kinetic-exchange-like opinion dynamics model with both positive and negative interactions in various complex networks. The control parameter p ∈ [0, 1] denotes the probability of theExpand
Degree Distribution, Rank-size Distribution, and Leadership Persistence in Mediation-Driven Attachment Networks
To quantify how long a leader, the node with the maximum degree, persists in its leadership as the network evolves, the leadership persistence probability F(τ) is investigated and it is found that it exhibits a power-law F (τ)∼τ−θ(m) with persistence exponent θ (m)≈1.51∀m in MDA networks and θ( m)→1.53 exponentially with m in BA networks.

Dynamic scaling, data-collapse and self-similarity in mediation-driven attachment networks
Recently, we have shown that if the $i$th node of the Barab\'{a}si-Albert (BA) network is characterized by the generalized degree $q_i(t)=k_i(t)t_i^\beta/m$, where $k_i(t)\sim t^\beta$ and $m$ areExpand
DWDH: directed and weighted dynamics of hierarchical wireless sensor networks
Two dynamic evolution models are presented, which consider link/communication directions in real WSNs, and two kinds of nodes: router node and normal node are introduced into two evolution models with directed weighted edges. Expand

Networkalization of Network–Unlike Entities: How to Preserve Encoded Information
It was found that the technique with its coarse-graining and area-like connecting conserves natural information inherent to the entities and imbeds accordingly scale-free and small world properties into output networks, thus making them really complex in their structure. Expand


Emergence of scaling in random networks
A model based on these two ingredients reproduces the observed stationary scale-free distributions, which indicates that the development of large networks is governed by robust self-organizing phenomena that go beyond the particulars of the individual systems. Expand
Statistical mechanics of complex networks
A simple model based on these two principles was able to reproduce the power-law degree distribution of real networks, indicating a heterogeneous topology in which the majority of the nodes have a small degree, but there is a significant fraction of highly connected nodes that play an important role in the connectivity of the network.

The results suggest that the critical behavior of the disordered system is unchanged with respect to that on a regular lattice, i.e., that of directed percolation. Expand
Understanding search trees via statistical physics
It is shown that the probability distributions of extreme observables associated with a random search tree such as the height and the balanced height of a tree have a travelling front structure and the mechanism of this phase transition is generic. Expand

Comment on "Kinematic scaling and crossover to scale invariance in martensite growth"
These findings disagree with the ordinary scaling behavior of the segment length distribution reported in [1], and are equivalent to a stochastic process where seeds appear uniformly in space with unit rate, and grow with infinite velocity in the x or the y directions with equal probabilities.
