Ongoing projects at CRI and beyond: 

The main question is to understand the delays propagating in the network and to analyse perturbations as dynamical system.

This project is based on the model described in our recent articles: 

L.Tupikina, D.Grebenkov “Temporal and structural heterogeneities in networks” arxiv, accept.Applied network Journ. (2019)

D.Grebenkov, L. Tupikina “Heterogeneous continuous time random walk”, link to Physical Rev. E Journal  E 97, 012148 (2018)

The research questions are description of the continuous limits of CTRW (random walk in continuous time on networks), Ito-Stratonovich dilemma  

Modelling and understanding the trajectories of scientific fields.

The research question is how the epidemics spreading is changed if the underlying network and the model have heterogeneity: either encoded in the heterogeneity of network topology of epidemics spreading.  Our previous article on this model is:

P.Holme, L.Tupikina “Epidemics extinction in networks: insights from 12110 smallest graphs” NJP (2018), arxiv  1802.08849 (2018)

We are also collecting the code for this on github.

This is related to the research project in order to explore the researchers mobility in order to provide better opportunities for researchers to connect to local projects.


(publication rev. in progress, to appear soon)

Main idea is use the untapped opportunity for researchers, who travel to link to local projects

In January 2019 we organised the webinar on spectral methods in Complex Systems (CSSM 2019) together with Francesco Caravelli. The link to the videos is provided here: webinar
