Nowadays, massive amounts of data are available for analysis in natural and social systems and the tasks to depict system structures from the data, i.e., the inverse problems, become one of the central issues in wide interdisciplinary fields. In this paper, we study the inverse problem of dynamic complex networks driven by white noise. A simple and universal inference formula of double correlation matrices and noise-decorrelation (DCMND) method is derived analytically, and numerical simulations…

Reconstructing networks from dynamics with correlated noise
Network reconstructions with partially available data
It is proposed to infer subnetwork with data of the subnetwork available only and other nodes of the entire network hidden; to depict group-group interactions in networks with averages of groups of node variables available; and to perform network reconstructions with known data of nodes variables only when networks are driven by both unknown internal fast-varying noises and unknown external slowly-variesing signals.
Reconstruction of dynamic networks with time-delayed interactions in the presence of fast-varying noises.
By computing suitable correlations, this work can infer the intensity and time delay of any targeted interaction with the data of two related nodes only while all other nodes in the network are hidden.
Reconstruction of noise-driven nonlinear networks from node outputs by using high-order correlations
This work proposes to use high-order correlation computations (HOCC) to treat nonlinear dynamics; use two-time correlations to decorrelate effects of network dynamics and noise driving; and use suitable basis and correlator vectors to unifiedly infer all dynamic nonlinearities, topological interaction links and noise statistical structures.
Reconstruction of noise-driven nonlinear dynamic networks with some hidden nodes
This article proposes using high-order correlation to treat nonlinearity and structural complexity, two-time correlation to decorrelate noise, and higherorder derivatives to overcome the difficulties of hidden nodes in noise-driven nonlinear networks with some hidden nodes.
Reconstructing links in directed networks from noisy dynamics.
This work addresses the long-standing challenge of how to reconstruct links in directed networks from measurements, and presents a general method that makes use of a noise-induced relation between network structure and both the time-lagged covariance and the covariance of measurements taken at two different times.
Detecting network structures from measurable data produced by dynamics with hidden variables.
To solve hidden variable problems, three reconstruction methods are proposed, respectively, based on the following conditions: statistical characteristics of hidden variables, linearizablehidden variables, and white noise injection.
Deriving pairwise transfer entropy from network structure and motifs
These findings also apply to Granger causality, which is equivalent to TE for Gaussian variables, and similar empirical results on random Boolean networks suggest that the dependence of the TE on the in-degree extends to nonlinear dynamics.

It is shown that the full set of hydromagnetic equations admit five more integrals, besides the energy integral, if dissipative processes are absent, which made it possible to formulate a variational principle for the force-free magnetic fields.

Biochemical oscillations and cellular rhythms
A model for circadian oscillations in the Drosophila period protein (PER) is proposed, which combines the periodic synthesis and relay of camp signals in Dictyostelium with the mitotic oscillator driving the cell division cycle.
