Most previous studies of epidemic dynamics on complex networks suppose that the disease will eventually stabilize at either a disease-free state or an endemic one. In reality, however, some epidemics always exhibit sporadic and recurrent behaviour in one region because of the invasion from an endemic population elsewhere. In this paper we address this issue and study a susceptible–infected–susceptible epidemiological model on a network consisting of two communities, where the disease is endemic… 

SIR dynamics in random networks with communities

For large-scale epidemics, strengthening the community structure to reduce the size of disease is undoubtedly an effective way, and this paper establishes a susceptible–infected–recovered (SIR) model in a two-community network with an arbitrary joint degree distribution, formulated as a probability generating function.

Modeling and analysis of epidemic spreading on community networks with heterogeneity

Epidemiological Modeling on Complex Networks

The Node-based and Edge-based mean-field modeling approaches on complex networks are reviewed and compared respectively, and the application of bond percolation in the single network and coupled networks is reviewed.

Random complex networks

This paper addresses what it means to randomly choose a network from the class of networks with a particular degree distribution, and it is shown that the networks one gets from the preferential attachment process are actually highly pathological.

Community Detection with Self-Adapting Switching Based on Affinity

This work designs a self-adapting switching (SAS) algorithm, where weak communities are detected by combination of two affinities, which has a competitive accuracy and its time complexity is near linear.

Multilayer Network from Multivariate Time Series for Characterizing Nonlinear Flow Behavior

A novel methodology for inferring multilayer network from multivariate time series is proposed, which enables to fuse multichannel flow information at different frequency bands and suggests that this analysis allows uncovering the nonlinear flow behaviors underlying the transitions of oil-in-water bubbly flows.

Wavelet Multiresolution Complex Network for Analyzing Multivariate Nonlinear Time Series

A novel wavelet multiresolution complex network (WMCN) is proposed for analyzing multivariate nonlinear time series and it is proposed that each time series is analyzed as a node and the connections are determined in terms of the distance among the feature vectors extracted from wavelet coefficients series.

Optimal observables to determine entanglement of a two qubit state

AbstractExperimental determination of entanglement is important not only to characterize the state and use it in quantum information, but also in understanding complicated phenomena such as phase



Epidemic dynamics and endemic states in complex networks.

A dynamical model for the spreading of epidemics in complex networks that implies that scale-free networks are prone to the spreading and the persistence of infections whatever spreading rate the epidemic agents might possess.

Epidemics on Interconnected Networks

The susceptible-infected-recovered process on interconnected network systems is studied and two distinct regimes are found; a mixed phase exists below β(c) of the coupled network system, where an epidemic occurs in one network but does not spread to the coupled system.

Dynamics and Control of Diseases in Networks with Community Structure

It is found that community structure has a major impact on disease dynamics, and it is shown that in networks with strong community structure, immunization interventions targeted at individuals bridging communities are more effective than those simply targeting highly connected individuals.

Contagion dynamics in time-varying metapopulation networks

This work focuses on the SIR process and determines analytically the mobility threshold for the onset of an epidemic spreading in the framework of activity-driven network models, and finds profound differences from the case of static networks.

Community Structure in Social Networks: Applications for Epidemiological Modelling

This work argues that a social network can be split into interacting communities with varying levels of awareness of the disease and construct a theoretical population to gain a better understanding of the effects that community-structured networks and variations in awareness, or risk perception, have on the disease dynamics.

This paper develops an analytical formalism for coupled adaptive networks, where susceptible nodes are able to avoid contact with infected nodes by rewiring their intranetwork connections, and finds that stability is increased by increasing the number of internetwork links and the range of parameters over which both endemic and healthy states coexist becomes smaller.

Epidemic spreading on interconnected networks

A heterogeneous mean-field approach is developed that allows for the calculation of the conditions for the emergence of an endemic state in the coupled system even though the epidemics is not able to propagate on each network separately and even when the number of coupling connections is small.

Spread of infectious diseases in directed and modular metapopulation networks.

This work presents a model for epidemics on directed networks, which are found, for example, in the livestock trade, and shows that the direction of edges and the modular structure of networks have an impact on the outbreak size and the time of the outbreak peak.

Epidemic spreading in community networks

This model of community network is presented and it is found that, compared to the random network, the community network has a broader degree distribution, a smaller threshold of epidemic outbreak, and more prevalence to keep the outbreak endemic.
