Towards small world emergence

Philippe Duchon, Nicolas Hanusse, Emmanuelle Lebhar, Nicolas Schabanel
2006 Proceedings of the eighteenth annual ACM symposium on Parallelism in algorithms and architectures - SPAA '06  
for the small world phenomenon in large real interaction networks.  ...  Previously known small world augmentation processes require the global knowledge of the network and centralized computations, which is unrealistic for large decentralized networks.  ...  The existence of such a lightweight scheme might be considered as a first step toward the explanation of the omnipresence of small world phenomenon in interaction networks.  ...

Does The Adoption Of Ifrs Influence Earnings Management Towards Small Positive Profits? Evidence From Emerging Markets

Sawcen Chebaane, Hakim Ben Othman
2013 Zenodo  
Our results document that mandatory adoption of IFRS is not associated with a reduction in earnings management towards small positive profits in emerging markets.  ...  This paper investigates the effect of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) adoption on the frequency of earnings managements towards small positive profits.  ...  Mandatory IFRS adoption is likely to reduce the scope for earnings management toward small positive profits in emerging markets.

Modern philosophy tends to see the whole world-system as an emergent series of organisms, some small and some great, some less and some more richly differentiated.  ...  The world-process is an organic one, for many modern thinkers; each entity in this emergent universe is more than the sum of its parts, as Wundt used to say of “ psychological wholes.”  ... 

Small worlds: How and why

Nisha Mathias, Venkatesh Gopal
2001 Physical review. E, Statistical physics, plasmas, fluids, and related interdisciplinary topics  
While the characteristics of small-world networks are now fairly well understood, there is as yet no work on what drives the emergence of such a network architecture.  ...  In the intermediate regime, a small-world network is formed.  ...  We attempt to understand the emergence of the small-world topology in networks where the physical distance is a criterion that cannot be ignored. 2 Can small-worlds arise as the result of an Optimization  ...

Emergence of scale-free characteristics in socio-ecological systems with bounded rationality

Dharshana Kasthurirathna, Mahendra Piraveenan
2015 Scientific Reports  
Using this model, we show that when a randomly connected socio-ecological system is topologically optimised to converge towards Nash equilibria, scale-free and small world features emerge.  ...  Therefore, optimising system rationality is an evolutionary reason for the emergence of scale-free and small-world features in socio-ecological systems.  ...  Scientific RepoRts | 5:10448 | DOi: 10.1038/srep10448 maximum system rationality (i.e converegence towards Nash equilibria on average is favoured), scale-free and small-world features emerge in systems  ...
