• Road trip and NetSci 2013

    I’ll be AFK from mid-May for a road trip in Iceland, but will reconnect as soon as we get to Copenhagen for NetSci 2013 . I’ll be giving a talk on a small project called Hard-core Random Networks on a model of random networks which preserves a given shell decomposition structure, maps to a weird version of the Configuration Model and is a quite efficient proxy for analytical predictions of bond percolation. Antoine Allard will be presenting his much broader analytical formalism for bond percolation on any kind of random networks (including the hard-core ones) and Jean-Gabriel Young will present part of his on-going work on community detection (different from the COMPLEX 2012 talk).

  • The beginning of the end (part 2)

    A second paper of our work at the Santa Fe Institute Complex System Summer School, entitled Pathogen Mutation Modeled by Competition Between Site and Bond Percolation , was published today in Physical Review Letters. We examine the effect of pathogen mutation (induced by selective pressure from treatment) on the phase transition at the epidemic threshold. Head over to the PRL website to have a look!

  • The beginning of the end of CSSS '12 (?)

    New projects are moving forward and old projects are coming to an end. The first of our papers written during the Santa Fe Institute Complex System Summer School (2012) has been published. Most interesting result? If antiviral treatment of influenza favours emergence of resistance, random treatment has a better optimal scenario (smaller epidemic) than targetted treatment on high degree nodes. Head over to the publication page for more details or jump straight to the paper .

  • Once more into the fray

    Antoine Allard and I will be leaving once again for Santa Fe in early December for the 2nd International Conference on Complex Sciences. I will be presenting preliminary results of my research on the growth of critical systems and Antoine will be presenting some results of Jean-Gabriel Young’s ongoing effort in community detection .

  • Back at work

    The summer has been surprisingly more than I expected (in all aspects). And even more surprisingly, I managed to get some work done. Some new publications are in submission and the latest work of dynamica can now be found on the arXiv (as seen at NetSci 2012!).
