Abstract We study dynamics and scaling exponents in a nonlinear network model inspired by the formation of planetary systems. Dynamics of this model leads to phase separation to two types of condensate, light and heavy, distinguished by how they scale with mass. Light condensate distributions obey power laws given in terms of several identified scaling exponents that do not depend on initial conditions. The analyzed properties of heavy condensates have been found to be scale-free. Calculated… Expand

Co-Evolutionary Mechanisms of Emotional Bursts in Online Social Dynamics and Networks
It was found that, in its own way, each mechanism leads to a reduced phase space of the emotion components when the collective dynamics takes place, and that a non-additive entropy describes emotion dynamics. Expand


Formation of the Cores of the Outer Planets
AbstractThe formation of the giant planets seems to be best explained by accretion of planetesimals to form massive cores, which in the case of Jupiter and Saturn were able to capture nebular gas.Expand
Topology of evolving networks: local events and universality
A continuum theory is proposed that predicts the connectivity distribution of the network describing the professional links between movie actors as well as the scaling function and the exponents, in good agreement with numerical results. Expand
Computer simulations of planetary accretion dynamics: sensitivity to initial conditions. [Implications and limitations of ACRETE]
The implications and limitations of program ACRETE were tested. The program is a scheme based on Newtonian physics and accretion with unit sticking efficiency, devised to simulate the origin of theExpand
Mean-field theory for scale-free random networks
A mean-field method is developed to predict the growth dynamics of the individual vertices of the scale-free model, and this is used to calculate analytically the connectivity distribution and the scaling exponents. Expand
Maximum entropy in a nonlinear system with a 1/f power spectrum
An analysis of master–slave hierarchy has been made in a system of nonlinear stochastic equations describing fluctuations with a 1/f spectrum at coupled nonequilibrium phase transitions. It is shownExpand
Computer simulation of the formation of planetary systems
Abstract One of the many hypotheses about the formation of the solar system postulates that the planets were formed by the aggregation of particulate matter within a cloud of dust and gas surroundingExpand
Formation of the Outer Planets
Models of the origins of gas giant planets and ‘ice’ giant planets are discussed and related to formation theories of both smaller objects (terrestrial planets) and larger bodies (stars). The mostExpand
Critical phenomena in complex networks
A wide range of critical phenomena in equilibrium and growing networks including the birth of the giant connected component, percolation, $k$-core percolations, phenomena near epidemic thresholds, condensation transitions,critical phenomena in spin models placed on networks, synchronization, and self-organized criticality effects in interacting systems on networks are mentioned.

Extrasolar Planets: Constraints for Planet Formation Models
Since 1995, more than 150 extrasolar planets have been discovered, most of them in orbits quite different from those of the giant planets in the authors' own solar system, demonstrating that planetary systems are common but also that they may possess a large variety of properties. Expand
Oligarchic growth of protoplanets
We investigate the growth and the orbital evolution of protoplanets embedded in a swarm of planetesimals using three-dimensionalN-body simulations. We find that among protoplanets, larger ones growExpand
