Identifying influential spreaders is crucial for understanding and controlling spreading processes on social networks. Via assigning degree-dependent weights onto links associated with the ground node, we proposed a variant to a recent ranking algorithm named LeaderRank (Lü et al., 2011). According to the simulations on the standard SIR model, the weighted LeaderRank performs better than... More
