Epidemic processes in single and multilayer complex networks



In this talk, we will present our last results on the modelling of rumour and disease spreading in single and multilayer networks.  We will introduce a general epidemic model that encompasses the rumour and disease dynamics into a single framework. The susceptible-infected-susceptible (SIS) and susceptible-infected-recovered (SIR) models will be discussed in multilayer networks. Moreover, we will introduce a model of epidemic spreading with awareness, where the disease and information are propagated in different layers with different time scales. We will show that the time scale determines whether the information awareness is beneficial or not to the disease spreading. Finally, we will show how machine learning can be used to understand the structure and dynamics of complex networks.
