PIMS Lunchbox Lecture: Mason Porter

  • Date: 11/24/2016
Speaker(s):
Mason Porter, UCLA
Location: 

University of Calgary

Topic: 

Contagions on Networks

Description: 

I'll give an introduction to modelling contagion processes on networks. I will discuss both biological and social contagions, and I will focus especially on the latter. I will consider what subjects like dynamical systems, statistical physics, and computational algebraic topology can tell us about social influence on networks, measuring the spread of contagions, and when they follow an underlying space and when they skip around.
