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… 
Multi-multifractality and dynamic scaling in stochastic porous lattice
In this article, we extend the idea of stochastic dyadic Cantor set to weighted planar stochastic lattice that leads to a stochastic porous lattice. The process starts with an initiator which we
Percolation on a multifractal scale-free planar stochastic lattice and its universality class.
The results suggest that the percolation on WPSL belong to a separate universality class than on all other planar lattices.
Contact process on weighted planar stochastic lattice
The critical behavior of the disordered system using extensive simulations shows the critical behavior is distinct from that on a regular lattice, suggesting it belongs to a different universality class.
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 the
Converting network–unlike data into complex networks: problems and prospective
The algorithm models coarse-graining and area-like linking and forms thoroughly output structures of really complex topologies with intrinsic scale-free and small world properties and is considered as a promising approach to study more complex systems of the real world.
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.


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.
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.
Contact process on a Voronoi triangulation.
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.
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.
The Structure and Function of Complex Networks
Developments in this field are reviewed, including such concepts as the small-world effect, degree distributions, clustering, network correlations, random graph models, models of network growth and preferential attachment, and dynamical processes taking place on networks.
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.
Kinematic scaling and crossover to scale invariance in martensite growth.
The results provide a method to compute dynamic quantities (v or I) from static optical micrographs of martensite grains and represent a novel example of a flow towards self-organized criticality.
