  • A Bi-Virus Competing Spreading Model with Generic Infection Rates

    Due to widespread applications, the multi-virus competing spreading dynamics has recently aroused considerable interests. To our knowledge, all previous competing spreading models assume infection rates that are each linear in the virus occupancy probabilities of the individuals in a population. As linear infection rates are overestimation of real infection rates, in some situations these models c... View full abstract»

  • A Micro-Foundation of Social Capital in Evolving Social Networks

    A social network confers benefits and advantages on individuals (and on groups); the literature refers to these benefits and advantages as social capital. An individual's social capital depends on its position in the network and on the shape of the network-but positions in the network and the shape of the network are determined endogenously and change as the network forms and evolves. This paper p... View full abstract»

  • Incompatibility Boundaries for Properties of Community Partitions

    We prove the incompatibility of certain desirable properties of community partition quality functions. Our results generalize the impossibility result of [Kleinberg 2003] by considering sets of weaker properties. In particular, we use an alternative notion to solve the central issue of the consistency property. (The latter means that modifying the graph in a way consistent with a partition should ...

    Networks are pervasive across science and engineering, but seldom do we precisely know their topology. The information-theoretic notion of transfer entropy has been recently proposed as a potent means to unveil connectivity patterns underlying collective dynamics of complex systems. By pairwise comparing time series of units in the network, transfer entropy promises to determine whether the units ... View full abstract»

  • Pattern Formation over Multigraphs

    Two of the most common pattern formation mechanisms are Turing-patterning in reaction-diffusion systems and lateral inhibition of neighboring cells. In this paper, we introduce a broad dynamical model of interconnected modules to study the emergence of patterns, with the above mentioned two mechanisms as special cases. Our results do not restrict the number of modules or their complexity, allow mu... View full abstract»

  • Scheduling Resource-Bounded Monitoring Devices for Event Detection and Isolation in Networks

    In networked systems, monitoring devices such as sensors are typically deployed to monitor various target locations. Targets are the points in the physical space at which events of some interest, such as random faults or attacks, can occur. Most often, monitoring devices have limited energy supplies, and they can operate for a limited duration. As a result, energy-efficient monitoring of target lo... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering is committed to timely publishing of peer-reviewed technical articles that deal with the theory and applications of network science and the interconnections among the elements in a system that form a network. In particular, the IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering publishes articles on understanding, prediction, and control of structures and behaviors of networks at the fundamental level.
