In this work we analyze the architecture of real urban mobility networks from the multiplex perspective. In particular, based on empirical data about the mobility patterns in the cities of Bogot\'a and Medell\'{\i}n, each city is represented by six multiplex networks, each one representing the origin-destination trips performed by a subset of the population corresponding to a particular socioeconomic status. The nodes of each multiplex are the different urban locations whereas links represent… 

Análise de Mobilidade Urbana em Diferentes Estratos Sociais a partir de uma Rede de Telefonia Móvel

Urban mobility of a citizen can be understood as the sequences of trips followed by him. The social classes in which individuals are contextualized, however, denote a significant factor for the

Spreading Processes in Multiplex Metapopulations Containing Different Mobility Networks

A theoretical framework for the study of spreading processes in structured metapopulations, with heterogeneous agents, subjected to different recurrent mobility patterns is proposed, where nodes would correspond to geographical areas and layers account for the mobility patterns of agents of the same class.

Layer–layer competition in multiplex complex networks

The results indicate that there is a transition from localization (use of a preferred layer) to delocalization (combined usage of both layers) and that the prevalence of a particular layer (in the localized state) depends on the structural properties.

Influence of Couple Patterns on Entropy in Multilayer Networks

Under the scenario of a heterogeneous distribution of counterpart numbers, it is found that the influences of couple patterns on entropy and energy of the two layer coupled network decrease when counterpart number assortativity and/or degreeAssortativity positively increase, while increase when the two assorticism are negatively enhanced.

Multiple structural transitions in interacting networks

This work reveals multiple structural transitions for the algebraic connectivity of such systems, between regimes in which each network layer keeps its independent identity or drives diffusive processes over the whole system, thus generalizing previous results reporting a single transition point.

Understanding the Information-Based Transformation of Strategy and Society

In this framework, a picture of the transformation of information-based strategy in the future is painted and three determinants for the modes of their operations of consumers, producers, markets, and society are examined.

Community vulnerability perspective on robust protection planning in interdependent infrastructure networks

A multi-objective mathematical model is proposed to reduce the vulnerability of a system of interdependent infrastructure networks to a variety of disruption scenarios to promote not only the protection of the most at-risk components but also ensure that socially vulnerable communities are given adequate resources.

How damage diversification can reduce systemic risk.

The influence of risk diversification on cascading failures in weighted complex networks, where weighted directed links represent exposures between nodes, is studied by developing a branching process approximation taking into account that inflicted losses cannot only depend on properties of the exposed, but also of the failing node.

A framework for epidemic spreading in multiplex networks of metapopulations

This paper presents a meta-analyses of the EMMARM, a probabilistic approach to estimating the total number of components in the response of the immune system to EMTs.



The worldwide air transportation network: Anomalous centrality, community structure, and cities' global roles

It is found that the worldwide air transportation network is a scale-free small-world network, and it is demonstrated that the most connected cities are not necessarily the most central, resulting in anomalous values of the centrality.

The Structure of Spatial Networks and Communities in Bicycle Sharing Systems

This paper employs visualization, descriptive statistics and spatial and network analysis tools to explore system usage in these cities, using techniques to investigate features specific to the unique geographies of each, and uncovering similarities between different systems.

Understanding Road Usage Patterns in Urban Areas

This paper combines the most complete record of daily mobility, based on large-scale mobile phone data, with detailed GIS data, uncovering previously hidden patterns in urban road usage, and proposes a network of road usage by defining a bipartite network framework.

A statistical mechanics framework is introduced to describe multiplex ensembles in which the existence of a link in one layer is correlated with theexistence of a links in another layer, which implies that a typical multiplex of the ensemble can have a significant overlap of the links in the different layers.

Diversity of individual mobility patterns and emergence of aggregated scaling laws

The direct travel diaries of volunteers are shown to show the absence of scaling properties in the displacement distribution at the individual level, while the aggregated displacement distribution follows a power law with an exponential cutoff.

Modelling disease outbreaks in realistic urban social networks

The results suggest that outbreaks can be contained by a strategy of targeted vaccination combined with early detection without resorting to mass vaccination of a population.

A universal model for mobility and migration patterns

A stochastic process capturing local mobility decisions that helps to derive commuting and mobility fluxes that require as input only information on the population distribution is introduced, significantly improving the predictive accuracy of most of the phenomena affected by mobility and transport processes.
