Complex networks: the key to systems biology
(Sociedade Brasileira de Genética, 2008)
Though introduced recently, complex networks research has grown steadily because of its potential to represent, characterize and model a wide range of intricate natural systems and phenomena. Because of the intrinsic ...
Analyzing and modeling real-world phenomena with complex networks: a survey of applications
(Taylor and FrancisAbingdon, 2011-05)
The success of new scientific areas can be assessed by their potential in contributing to new theoretical approaches and in applications to real-world problems. Complex networks have fared extremely well in both of these ...
Complex network study of solar magnetograms
In this paper, we study solar magnetic activity by means of a complex network approach. A complex network was built based on information on the space and time evolution of sunspots provided by image recognition algorithms ...
Concentric characterization and classification of complex network nodes: Application to an institutional collaboration network
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2008)
Differently from theoretical scale-free networks, most real networks present multi-scale behavior, with nodes structured in different types of functional groups and communities. While the majority of approaches for ...
Modeling worldwide highway networks
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2009)
This Letter addresses the problem of modeling the highway systems of different countries by using complex networks formalism. More specifically, we compare two traditional geographical models with a modified geometrical ...
Influence of Contact Network Topology on the Spread of Tuberculosis
This paper presents the influence of the complex networks topology on the spread of Tuberculosis with the use of the Individual-Based Model (IBM). Five complex network models were used with the IBM, namely, random, small ...
