Documentation for the project “The impact of asymmetric information-flow on the power-law exponent”

A power-law distribution for the connectivities of the nodes in a complex network has been widely reported in the studies of diverse networks. Though preferential attachment (PA) has been well accepted as an explanation for the power-law distributions observed in many systems, it is unclear how the asymmetry of information-flow in the networks will influence … Continue reading Documentation for the project “The impact of asymmetric information-flow on the power-law exponent”

Documentation for the project “Universality and correlations in individuals wandering through an online extremist space”

The `out of the blue' nature of recent terror attacks and the diversity of apparent motives, highlight the importance of understanding the online trajectories that individuals follow prior to developing high levels of extremist support. Here we show that the physics of stochastic walks, with and without temporal correlation, provides a unifying description of these … Continue reading Documentation for the project “Universality and correlations in individuals wandering through an online extremist space”

Documentation for the project “Group dynamics”

The dynamics of online human activity behind the evolution of online groups that individuals follow prior to developing high levels of extremist outbreak is a hot topic and crucial for improving the social security. Here is the documentation for the codes used for the analyses. Table of Contents Installation Preprocessing the datasets (optional) Observations Evolutionary … Continue reading Documentation for the project “Group dynamics”

Documentation for the project “Grand canonical minority game”

The Grand Canonical Minority Game could be regarded as a simple extension of the basic version of Minority Game, by allowing the users to not play the game when they feel it is too risky. Here is the documentation for the codes used in the project. The focus of this documentation will be on introducing … Continue reading Documentation for the project “Grand canonical minority game”
