Crossing the Boundaries of Communities via Limited Link Injection for Information Diffusion In Social Networks

Dimitrios Rafailidis, Alexandros Nanopoulos
2015 Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '15 Companion  
We propose a new link-injection method aiming at boosting the overall diffusion of information in social networks.  ...  We additionally perform clustering to identify communities in order to inject links that cross the boundaries of such communities.  ...  CONCLUSIONS Our link injection method can significantly boost information diffusion in social networks, especially when promoting to inject links that cross the boundaries of users' communities.  ...

A Survey of Molecular Communication in Cell Biology: Establishing a New Hierarchy for Interdisciplinary Applications [article]

Dadi Bi, Apostolos Almpanis, Adam Noel, Yansha Deng, Robert Schober
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Molecular communication (MC) engineering is inspired by the use of chemical signals as information carriers in cell biology.  ...  To bridge this gap, this survey proposes a novel communication hierarchy for MC signaling in cell biology and maps phenomena, contributions, and problems to the hierarchy.  ...  The authors of [329] showed that, depending on the size of a chemical synapse and its associated reaction rates, communication via the synapse could be either diffusion-limited or rate-limited. 3) Level  ...
