Epidemic spreading with awareness diffusion on activity-driven networks

A behavioral model in which susceptible individuals become alert and adopt a preventive behavior under the local risk perception characterized by a decision-making threshold is considered, which shows that the local epidemic situation in risk perception and the duration of preventive effect are crucial for raising the epidemic threshold.

Suboptimal Control and Targeted Constant Control for Semi-Random Epidemic Networks

The relationship between the optimal control and the network’s topological structure is uncovered, a convenient method to determine suboptimal control is provided, and an effective targeted constant quarantine control is proposed using this centrality index.

Characterizing Protection Effects on Network Epidemics driven by Random Walks

Protection effects (PFx) denote protective measures taken by individuals (such as to wear masks and wash hands) upon their risk perception towards an ongoing epidemic outbreak. The holistic force

Propagação de epidemias em redes adaptativas

This study aimed to analize the dynamics that emerges from the interplay between the individual behavior of agents and the spreading of an epidemic or rumor, allowing a better understanding of the spread of information in complex networks with time-varying structure.

Skepticism and rumor spreading: The role of spatial correlations.

A simple model in which agents without previous contact with the rumor may convince spreaders to stop their activity or, once exposed to the rumor, decide not to propagate it as a consequence of fact checking is considered.



On the dynamical interplay between awareness and epidemic spreading in multiplex networks

The analysis of the interrelation between two processes accounting for the spreading of an epidemic, and the information awareness to prevent its infection, on top of multiplex networks reveals the phase diagram of the incidence of the epidemics and allows the evolution of the epidemic threshold depending on the topological structure of the multiplex and the inter correlation with the awareness process.

Epidemic spreading with information-driven vaccination.

It is found that the epidemic spreading can be significantly suppressed in both the homogeneous and heterogeneous networks when both λ and η are relatively large, which is a good news for the poor countries and regions with limited resources.

Asymmetrically interacting spreading dynamics on complex layered networks

A physical theory is developed to understand the intricate interplay between the two types of spreading dynamics, each occurring on its own layer, by focusing on the two fundamental quantities underlying any spreading process: epidemic threshold and the final infection ratio.

The Evolutionary Vaccination Dilemma in Complex Networks

In this work we analyze the evolution of voluntary vaccination in networked populations by entangling the spreading dynamics of an influenza-like disease with an evolutionary framework taking place

Competing spreading processes on multiplex networks: awareness and epidemics

The main finding is the existence of a metacritical point, rooted in the competition principle and holds for a large set of scenarios where the awareness spreading does not imply total immunization, and where infectiondoes not imply immediate awareness of it.

Locating the source of diffusion in complex networks by time-reversal backward spreading.

A time-reversal backward spreading algorithm to locate the source of a diffusion-like process efficiently and propose a general locatability condition that finds that the sources can be precisely located in arbitrary networks insofar as the locatable condition is assured.

The spread of awareness and its impact on epidemic outbreaks

It is found that the impact of locally spreading awareness is amplified if the social network of potential infection events and the network over which individuals communicate overlap, especially so if the networks have a high level of clustering.

Effects of delayed recovery and nonuniform transmission on the spreading of diseases in complex networks

Dynamics of interacting diseases

This work characterize analytically the epidemic thresholds of the two diseases for different scenarios and also compute the temporal evolution characterizing the unfolding dynamics and finds that the secondary thresholds for the SIS and SIR models are different, which results directly from the interaction between both diseases.
