Understanding dynamic interactions

Alexander Vassilios Mantzaris, Desmond J. Higham

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


We outline some recent mathematical and computationalideas that deal with dynamic patterns of connectivity indigital communication. Typical examples are email, voicemail and on-line interactions. This new branch of networkscience addresses issues such as: where is the best place andtime to start a rumour, which players have the ability toexploit the dynamic structure most eectively and how willthe network evolution respond to external stimulus? In anew experiment we apply dynamic centrality measures toan email data set involving Enron employees. This revealshow an individual's ability to communicate across the dy-namic network correlates with their position in the companyhierarchy.
