Mikołaj Morzy, Tomasz Kajdanowicz, Przemysław Kazienko, Grzegorz Miebs, Arkadiusz Rusin
2019 Scientific Reports  
The two main contributions of the paper are: the development of the priority attachment mechanism, and the design of Priority Rank: a simple network generative model based on the priority attachment mechanism  ...  We introduce a simple model, which uses the priority attachment to generate both synthetic and close to empirical networks.  ...  Acknowledgments We wish to thank F.Menczer, S.Fortunato, and A.Flammini for their valuable remarks.  ...

An Approach to Ranking the Sources of Information Dissemination in Social Networks

Lidia Vitkova, Igor Kotenko, Andrey Chechulin
2021 Information  
The problem of countering the spread of destructive content in social networks is currently relevant for most countries of the world.  ...  The proposed solution is applicable both to brand reputation monitoring systems and for countering cyberbullying and the dissemination of destructive information in social networks.  ...  The third algorithm ranks sources from the most popular to the least visible and then generates lists with sources that are a priority for the operator's attention.  ...

An Agenda-Based Routing Protocol in Delay Tolerant Mobile Sensor Networks

Xiao-Min Wang, Jin-Qi Zhu, Ming Liu, Hai-Gang Gong
2010 Sensors  
Most existing routing protocols for DTMSNs use simplistic random mobility models for algorithm design and performance evaluation.  ...  Routing in delay tolerant mobile sensor networks (DTMSNs) is challenging due to the networks' intermittent connectivity.  ...  Network Life Analysis Network life is a very important metric for DTMSNs, because the sensor nodes are generally energy-constrained.  ...

A robust evaluation of sustainability initiatives with analytic network process (ANP)

Lanndon Ocampo, Christine Omela Ocampo
2015 International Journal of Production Management and Engineering  
It suggests that the results are robust to random variations and to marginal changes of the network structure.  ...  To test the robustness of the results, two approaches are introduced in this work: (1) using Monte Carlo simulation and (2) introducing structural changes on the evaluation model.  ...  Ocampo and Clark (2014b) extended the former evaluation to include causal relationships between criteria and across the decision model using the general analytic network process (ANP).  ...

A Multi-Criteria Decision-Making Model for Evaluating Senior Daycare Center Locations

Lee, Kang
2019 International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health  
Based on the results from the FISM, a fuzzy analytic network process (FANP) questionnaire is given out, and the results are used to determine the priorities of the criteria.  ...  A senior daycare center, very similar to a daycare center for toddlers and preschoolers, can provide the elderly a place to go during daytime and have a more diversified social life.  ...  The fuzzy analytic network process (FANP) is applied to calculate the importance weights of the criteria under each merit, and the ranking of senior daycare center locations can be generated.  ...
