Understanding the resilience of infrastructures such as transportation network has significant importance for our daily life. Recently, a homogeneous spatial network model was developed for studying spatial embedded networks with characteristic link length such as power-grids and the brain. However, although many real-world networks are spatially embedded and their links have characteristics length such as pipelines, power lines or ground transportation lines they are not homogeneous but rather… Expand

Epidemic spreading and control strategies in spatial modular network
The susceptible-infected-recovered model is applied and it is shown that while control strategies can successfully control the disease, early actions are essentials to prevent the disease global spread. Expand
Spatio-temporal propagation of COVID-19 pandemics
The new coronavirus known as COVID-19 is spread world-wide since December 2019. Without any vaccination or medicine, the means of controlling it are limited to quarantine and social distancing. HereExpand
Spatio-temporal propagation of COVID-19 pandemics
The spatio-temporal propagation of the COVID-19 virus in China is compared to other global locations and suggests that the disease propagation is highly related to population migration from Hubei resembling a Lévy flight which is characteristic of human mobility and thus could be controlled by efficient quarantines.

Spreading of localized attacks on spatial multiplex networks with a community structure
There is a critical localized size of damage above which it will spread and the entire system will collapse, and this model can represent an interdependent infrastructure system of cities where within the city there are many links while between cities there are fewer links. Expand
Interconnections between networks acting like an external field in a first-order percolation transition.
The effects of such interconnections can be described as an external field for interdependent networks experiencing a first-order percolation transition and both Erdős-Rényi and scale-free networks have the same values of the exponents in the first- order regime, implying that these models are in the same universality class.

Critical Stretching of Mean-Field Regimes in Spatial Networks
It is found that, far from the percolation threshold the random part of the giant component scales linearly with ζ, close to criticality it extends in space until the universal length scale ζ6/(6-d), before crossing over to the spatial one. Expand
Fragility and anomalous susceptibility of weakly interacting networks
A simple mathematical model is developed able to describe percolation on weakly interacting networks, that is, network layers coupled together by much fewer interlinks than the connections within each layer, using a susceptibility measure that defines the range where the abrupt transition is more likely to occur.

Multi-Universality and Localized Attacks in Spatially Embedded Networks
A realistic spatial network model constructed by randomly linking lattice sites with linklengths following an exponential distribution with a characteristic scale ζ is studied, finding that for a broad range of the control parameters, this system is metastable. Expand
Network analysis reveals strongly localized impacts of El Niño
It is found that regions that are characterized by higher positive/negative network “in”-weighted links are exhibiting stronger correlations with the El Niño basin and are warmer/cooler during El Niño/La Niña periods. Expand
Small vulnerable sets determine large network cascades in power grids
The results imply that the same disturbance in a given power grid can lead to disparate outcomes under different conditions—ranging from no damage to a large-scale cascade, as well as failure-based allocation of resources in upgrading the system for improved resilience against large cascades. Expand
