Social and landscape effects on food webs: a multi-level network simulation model

M. Scotti, F. Ciocchetta, F. Jordan
2013 Journal of Complex Networks  
We present a toy model linking social networks, food webs and a landscape graph.  ...  Conspecific individuals can be linked to each other to form a social network. The social networks of various species are SOCIAL AND LANDSCAPE EFFECTS ON FOOD WEBS 3 of 23 Box 1 .  ...  We also thank the three anonymous referees who gave very important and useful comments on the manuscript.  ...

Daily deals

John W. Byers, Michael Mitzenmacher, Georgios Zervas
2012 Proceedings of the fifth ACM international conference on Web search and data mining - WSDM '12  
We begin by undertaking a study of the economics of daily deals on the web, based on a dataset we compiled by monitoring Groupon and LivingSocial sales in 20 large cities over several months.  ...  Second, we consider the effects of daily deals on the longer-term reputation of merchants, based on their Yelp reviews before and after they run a daily deal.  ...  We ran experiments based on these models on a network that has common characteristics with social network graphs, the arXiv High Energy Physics collaboration network from [15] .  ...
