On the breakup patterns of urban networks under load [article]

Marco Cogoni, Giovanni Busonera
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The urban networks of London and New York City are investigated as directed graphs within the paradigm of graph percolation. It has been recently observed that urban networks show a critical percolation transition when a fraction of edges are removed. The resulting strongly connected components form a cluster structure whose size distribution follows a power law with critical exponent τ. We start by analyzing how the networks react when subjected to increasingly widespread random edge removal

A similar phenomenon happens when real traffic data (UBER) is used to delete congested graph edges: during low congestion periods τ is close to that obtained for uncorrelated percolation, while during rush hours the exponent becomes closer to the one obtained from spatially correlated edge removal. We show that spatial correlations seem to play an important role to model different traffic regimes. We finally present some preliminary evidence that, at criticality, the largest clusters display spatial predictability and that cluster configurations form a taxonomy with few main clades: only a finite number of breakup patterns, specific for each city, exists. This holds both for random percolation and real traffic, where the three largest clusters are well localized and spatially distinct. This consistent cluster organization is strongly influenced by local topographical structures such as rivers and bridges.

Quality assessment for different haplotyping methods and GWAS sensitivity to phasing errors [article]

Giovanni Busonera, Marco Cogoni, Gianluigi Zanetti
2015 bioRxiv   pre-print
In this report we present a multimarker association tool (Flash) based on a novel algorithm to generate haplotypes from raw genotype data. It belongs to the entropy minimization class of methods and is composed of a two stage deterministic - heuristic part and of a optional stochastic optimization. This algorithm is able to scale up well to handle huge datasets with faster performance than the competing technologies such as BEAGLE and MACH while maintaining a comparable accuracy. A quality

The association results are compared with a multimarker and a single SNP association test performed with Plink. Our experiments confirm that the multimarker association test can be more powerful than the single SNP one as stated in the literature. Moreover, Flash and Plink show similar results for the multimarker association test but Flash speeds up the computation time of about an order of magnitude using 5 SNP size haplotypes.

On the stability of traffic breakup patterns in urban networks [article]

Marco Cogoni, Giovanni Busonera
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We investigate the behavior of extended urban traffic networks within the framework of percolation theory by using real and synthetic traffic data. Our main focus shifts from the statistical properties of the cluster size distribution studied recently, to the spatial analysis of the clusters at criticality and to the definition of a similarity measure between whole urban configurations. We discover that the breakup patterns of the complete network, formed by the connected functional road

We prove this by showing how the average spatial distributions of the highest-rank clusters evolve over time, and by building a taxonomy of traffic states via dimensionality-reduction of the distance matrix, obtained via a clustering similarity score. Finally, we show that a simple random percolation model can approximate the breakup patterns of heavy real traffic when long-ranged spatial correlations are imposed.

In our model, a set of tasks with random origin, destination and computational structure is distributed on a computational network, modeled as a graph. By varying the temperature of a Metropolis Montecarlo, we explore the global latency for an optimal to suboptimal resource assignment at a given time instant. By computing the two-point correlation function for the local overload, we study the behavior of the correlation distance (both for links and nodes) while approaching the congested phase: a transition from peaked to spread g(r) is seen above a critical (Montecarlo) temperature Tc. The average latency trend of the system is predicted by averaging over several network traffic realizations while maintaining a spatially detailed information for each node: a sharp decrease of performance is found over Tc independently of the workload. The globally optimized computational resource allocation and network routing defines a baseline for a future comparison of the transition behavior with respect to existing routing strategies [3, 4] for different network topologies.

Transition to congestion in communication/computation networks: from ideal to realistic resource allocation via Montecarlo simulations [article]

Marco Cogoni, Giovanni Busonera, Paolo Anedda, Gianluigi Zanetti
2016 arXiv   pre-print
We generalize previous studies on critical phenomena in communication networks by adding computational capabilities to the nodes to better describe real-world situations such as cloud computing. A set of tasks with random origin and destination with a multi-tier computational structure is distributed on a network modeled as a graph. The execution time (or latency) of each task is statically computed and the sum is used as the energy in a Montecarlo simulation in which the temperature parameter

A method to approximately recover the time-evolution of the system by interpolating the latency probability distributions is presented. This allows us to study the standard transition to the congested phase by varying the task production rate. We are able to reproduce the main known results on network congestion and to gain a deeper insight over the maximum theoretical performance of a system and its sensitivity to routing and load balancing errors.

Ultrametricity of optimal transport substates for multiple interacting paths over a square lattice network

Marco Cogoni, Giovanni Busonera, Gianluigi Zanetti
2017 Physical review. E  
We model a set of point-to-point transports on a network as a system of polydisperse interacting self-avoiding walks (SAWs) over a finite square lattice. The ends of each SAW may be located both at random, uniformly distributed, positions or with one end fixed at a lattice corner. The total energy of the system is computed as the sum over all SAWs, which may represent either the time needed to complete the transport over the network, or the resources needed to build the networking

A Simulated Annealing optimization, based on a modified BFACF Montecarlo algorithm developed for polymers, is used to probe the complex conformational substates structure. We characterize the average cost gains (and path-length variation) for increasing polymer density with respect to a Dijkstra routing and find a non-monotonic behavior as previously found in random networks. We observe the expected phase transition when switching from a convex to a concave cost function (e.g., x^γ, where x represents the node overlap) and the emergence of ergodicity breaking, finally we show that the space of ground states for γ<1 is compatible with an ultrametric structure as seen in many complex systems such as some spin glasses.
