Understanding Complex Systems
Contact processes describe the transmission of distinct properties of nodes via the links of a network. They provide a simple framework for many phenomena, such as epidemic spreading and opinion formation. Combining contact processes with rules for topological evolution yields an adaptive network in which the states of the nodes can interact dynamically with the topological degrees of freedom. By moment-closure approximation it is possible to derive low-dimensional systems of ordinarydoi:10.1007/978-3-642-01284-6_9 fatcat:um4vksvorzee5ncoizxklsdl24
