Our new paper, Global efficiency of local immunization on complex networks , was published today in Nature’s open access (!) journal: Scientific Reports. This is a side project that started almost two years ago with Antoine Allard and Jean-Gabriel Young. This paper had a torturous development, but thanks to The Long Road , is now much more complete. In fact, there’s a new (nice) result on a change in the “characteristic scale” of epidemic dynamics under change of transmissibility.
