Complexities in financial network topological dynamics: modeling of emerging and developed stock markets

Tang, Yong ; Xiong, Jason Jie ; Jia, Zi-Yang ; Zhang, Yi-Cheng

In: Complexity, 2018, p. -

Policy makings and regulations of financial markets rely on a good understanding of the complexity of financial markets. There have been recent advances in applying data-driven science and network theory into the studies of social and financial systems. Financial assets and institutions are strongly connected and influence each other. It is essential to study how the topological structures of...

Link prediction in bipartite nested networks

Medo, Matúš ; Mariani, Manuel Sebastian ; Lü, Linyuan

In: Entropy, 2018, vol. 20, no. 10, p. 777

Real networks typically studied in various research fields—ecology and economic complexity, for example—often exhibit a nested topology, which means that the neighborhoods of high-degree nodes tend to include the neighborhoods of low-degree nodes. Focusing on nested networks, we study the problem of link prediction in complex networks, which aims at identifying likely candidates for...

Influencers identification in complex networks through reaction-diffusion dynamics

Iannelli, Flavio ; Mariani, Manuel S. ; Sokolov, Igor M.

In: Physical Review E, 2018, vol. 98, no. 6, p. 062302

A pivotal idea in network science, marketing research, and innovation diffusion theories is that a small group of nodes—called influencers—have the largest impact on social contagion and epidemic processes in networks. Despite the long-standing interest in the influencers identification problem in socioeconomic and biological networks, there is not yet agreement on which is the best...

Empirical paths to the spread of information in location-based social networks

Zhou, Ming-Yang ; Xiong, Wen-Man ; Liao, Hao ; Wang, Tong ; Wei, Zong-Wen

In: Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment, 2018, vol. 2018, no. 12, p. 123404

Spreading phenomena in complex networks have attracted much attention in recent years. However, most of the previous works only concern the critical thresholds and final states of the spread. In this paper, we investigate the empirical spreading paths in real location-based networks and find an abnormal phenomenon that the transferring probability of an epidemic between users varies with...

Randomizing growing networks with a time-respecting null model

Ren, Zhuo-Ming ; Mariani, Manuel Sebastian ; Zhang, Yi-Cheng ; Medo, Matú?

In: Physical Review E, 2018, vol. 97, no. 5, p. 052311

Complex networks are often used to represent systems that are not static but grow with time: People make new friendships, new papers are published and refer to the existing ones, and so forth. To assess the statistical significance of measurements made on such networks, we propose a randomization methodology—a time- respecting null model—that preserves both the network's degree sequence...

Power enhancement via an ion-channel in a Raman free-electron laser

Huang, Xiaoli ; Zhang, Shi-Chang

In: Laser Physics, 2018, vol. 28, no. 9, p. 095002

As a high-power and high-efficiency coherent radiation source, the free-electron laser extends to two unique spectra: the region in the ultra-violet, x- and -rays, and the range in the millimeter- and terahertz-waves. Based on credible simulations, it is shown that the nonlinear power of a Raman free-electron laser in a millimeter wave range goes up and gets an increase of at least 9% when an...
