The critical behavior of the nondiffusive susceptible-infected-recovered model on lattices had been well established in virtue of its duality symmetry. By performing simulations and scaling analyses for the diffusive variant on the two-dimensional lattice, we show that diffusion for all agents, while rendering this symmetry destroyed, constitutes a...

The second-order Kuramoto equation describes the synchronization of coupled oscillators with inertia, which occur, for example, in power grids. On the contrary to the first-order Kuramoto equation, its synchronization transition behavior is significantly less known. In the case of Gaussian self-frequencies, it is discontinuous, in contrast to the c...

We investigate the synchronization transition of the Shinomoto-Kuramoto model on networks of the fruit-fly and two large human connectomes. This model contains a force term, thus is capable of describing critical behavior in the presence of external excitation. By numerical solution we determine the crackling noise durations with and without therma...

Dynamical simulation of the cascade failures on the Europe and United States (U.S.) high-voltage power grids has been done via solving the second-order Kuramoto equation. We show that synchronization transition happens by increasing the global coupling parameter K with metasatble states depending on the initial conditions so that hysteresis loops o...

Dynamical simulation of the cascade failures on the EU and USA high-voltage power grids has been done via solving the second-order Kuramoto equation.

Previous simulation studies on human connectomes suggested that critical dynamics emerge subcritically in the so-called Griffiths phases. Now we investigate this on the largest available brain network, the 21662 node fruit-fly connectome, using the Kuramoto synchronization model. As this graph is less heterogeneous, lacking modular structure and ex...

Power-law (PL) time-dependent infection growth has been reported in many COVID-19 statistics. In simple susceptible infected recovered (SIR) models, the number of infections grows at the outbreak as I(t)∝td−1 on d-dimensional Euclidean lattices in the endemic phase, or it follows a slower universal PL at the critical point, until finite sizes cause...

We have extended the study of the Kuramoto model with additive Gaussian noise running on the KKI-18 large human connectome graph. We determined the dynamical behavior of this model by solving it numerically in an assumed homeostatic state, below the synchronization crossover point we determined previously. The de-synchronization duration distributi...

In d>2 dimensional, homogeneous threshold models discontinuous transition occur, but the mean-field solution provides 1/t power-law activity decay and other power laws, and thus it is called mixed-order or hybrid type. It has recently been shown that the introduction of quenched disorder rounds the discontinuity and second-order phase transition an...

Power-law distributed cascade failures are well known in power-grid systems. Understanding this phenomena has been done by various DC threshold models, self-tuned at their critical point. Here, we attempt to describe it using an AC threshold model, with a second-order Kuramoto type equation of motion of the power-flow. We have focused on the explor...

The hypothesis, that cortical dynamics operates near criticality also suggests, that it exhibits universal critical exponents which marks the Kuramoto equation, a fundamental model for synchronization, as a prime candidate for an underlying universal model.

We consider the Kuramoto model on sparse random networks such as the Erdős–Rényi graph or its combination with a regular two-dimensional lattice and study the dynamical scaling behavior of the model at the synchronization transition by large-scale, massively parallel numerical integration.

The time dependent behavior of the Kuramoto model, describing synchronization, has been studied numerically on small-world graphs. We determined the desynchronziation behavior, by solving this model via the 4th order Runge-Kutta algorithm on a large, weighted human connectome network and compared the results with those of a two-dimensional lattice,...

We investigate how the dimensionality of the embedding space affects the microscopic crackling dynamics and the macroscopic response of heterogeneous materials. Using a fiber bundle model with localized load sharing, computer simulations are performed from one to eight dimensions slowly increasing the external load up to failure. Analyzing the cons...

Griffiths phases (GPs), generated by the heterogeneities on modular networks, have recently been suggested to provide a mechanism, rid of fine parameter tuning, to explain the critical behavior of complex systems. One conjectured requirement for systems with modular structures was that the network of modules must be hierarchically organized and pos...
Poster
Full-text available
Many critical phenomena are drastically altered by quenched disorder, leading to Griffiths phases (GPs). In the GPs, there is dynamical criticality and high sensitivity to external stimuli in an extended parameter space. It was conjectured that systems with modular structures can sustain GPs if they are hierarchically organized and possess finite d...

We have compared the phase synchronization transition of the second order Kuramoto model on 2D lattices and on large, synthetic power-grid networks, generated from real data. The latter are weighted, hierarchical modular networks. Due to the inertia the synchronization transitions are of first order type, characterized by fast relaxation and hyster...

For lattice Monte Carlo simulations parallelization is crucial to make studies of large systems and long simulation time feasible, while sequential simulations remain the gold-standard for correlation-free dynamics. Here, various domain decomposition schemes are compared, concluding with one which delivers virtually correlation-free simulations on...

Large scale, dynamical simulations have been performed for the two dimensional octahedron model, describing Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) for nonlinear, or Edwards-Wilkinson for linear surface growth. The autocorrelation functions of the heights and the dimer lattice gas variables are determined with high precision. Parallel random sequential (RS) and...

Local Scale-Invariance theory is tested by extensive dynamical simulations of the driven dimer lattice gas model, describing the surface growth of the 2+1 dimensional Kardar-Parisi-Zhang surfaces. Very precise measurements of the universal autoresponse function enabled us to perform nonlinear fitting with the scaling forms, suggested by local scale...

Extensive dynamical simulations of restricted solid-on-solid models in D=2+1 dimensions have been done using parallel multisurface algorithms implemented on graphics cards. Numerical evidence is presented that these models exhibit Kardar-Parisi-Zhang surface growth scaling, irrespective of the step heights N. We show that by increasing N the correc...

Stochastic surface growth models aid in studying properties of universality classes like the Kardar--Paris--Zhang class. High precision results obtained from large scale computational studies can be transferred to many physical systems. Many properties, such as roughening and some two-time functions can be studied using stochastic cellular automato...

Extended numerical simulations of threshold models have been performed on a human brain network with N=836733 connected nodes available from the Open Connectome project.

We provide numerical evidence for slow dynamics of the susceptible-infected-susceptible model evolving on finite-size random networks with power-law degree distributions.

The structural human connectome (i.e.\ the network of fiber connections in the brain) can be analyzed at ever finer spatial resolution thanks to advances in neuroimaging. Here we analyze several large data sets for the human brain network made available by the Open Connectome Project. We apply statistical model selection to characterize the degree...

We study variants of hierarchical modular network models suggested by Kaiser and Hilgetag [ Front. in Neuroinform., 4 (2010) 8] to model functional brain connectivity, using extensive simulations and quenched mean-field theory (QMF), focusing on structures with a connection probability that decays exponentially with the level index. Such networks c...

Effects of heterogeneity in the suspected-infected-susceptible model on networks are investigated using quenched mean-field theory. The emergence of localization is described by the distributions of the inverse participation ratio and compared with the rare-region effects appearing in simulations and in the Lifschitz tails. The latter, in the linea...

Bursty dynamics of agents is shown to appear at criticality or in extended Griffiths phases, even in case of Poisson processes.

Extended dynamical simulations have been performed on a (2+1)-dimensional driven dimer lattice-gas model to estimate aging properties. The autocorrelation and the autoresponse functions are determined and the corresponding scaling exponents are tabulated. Since this model can be mapped onto the (2+1)-dimensional Kardar-Parisi-Zhang surface growth m...

The Susceptible-Infected-Susceptible (SIS) model is one of the simplest memoryless system for describing information/epidemic spreading phenomena with competing creation and spontaneous annihilation reactions. The effect of quenched disorder on the dynamical behavior has recently been compared to quenched mean-field (QMF) approximations in scale-fr...

I extend a previous work to susceptible-infected-susceptible (SIS) models on weighted Barabási-Albert scale-free networks. Numerical evidence is provided that phases with slow, power-law dynamics emerge as the consequence of quenched disorder and tree topologies studied previously with the contact process. I compare simulation results with spectral...

The Contact Process has been studied on complex networks exhibiting different kinds of quenched disorder. Numerical evidence is found for Griffiths phases and other rare region effects, in Erd\H os R\'enyi networks, leading rather generically to anomalously slow (algebraic, logarithmic,...) relaxation. More surprisingly, it turns out that Griffiths...

We study coarsening phenomena in three different simple exclusion processes with quenched disordered jump rates. In the case of the totally asymmetric process, an earlier phenomenological description is improved, yielding for the time dependence of the length scale $\xi(t)\sim t/(\ln t)^2$, which is found to be in agreement with results of Monte Ca...

Full-text available
We show that generic, slow dynamics can occur in the contact process on complex networks with a tree-like structure and a superimposed weight pattern, in the absence of additional (non-topological) sources of quenched disorder. The slow dynamics is induced by rare-region effects occurring on correlated subspaces of vertices connected by large weigh...

The octahedron model introduced recently has been implemented onto graphics cards, which permits extremely large-scale simulations via binary lattice gases and bit-coded algorithms. We confirm scaling behavior belonging to the two-dimensional Kardar-Parisi-Zhang universality class and find a surface growth exponent: β = 0.2415(15) on 2^17 × 2^17 sy...

Networks and dynamical processes occurring on them have become a paradigmatic representation of complex systems. Studying the role of quenched disorder, both intrinsic to nodes and topological, is a key challenge. With this in mind, here we analyse the contact process, i.e. the simplest model for propagation phenomena, with node-dependent infection...

The critical 3-state two-dimensional Potts model with one line of defect couplings has been studied. Interpolating the coupling strength between the free and periodic boundary conditions renormalization group arguments suggest that the algebraic content should change discontinuously.

Restricted solid on solid surface growth models can be mapped onto binary lattice gases. We show that efficient simulation algorithms can be realized on GPUs either by CUDA or by OpenCL programming.

Dynamical processes occurring on top of complex networks have become an exciting area of research. Quenched disorder plays a relevant role in general dynamical processes and phase transitions, but the effect of topological quenched disorder on the dynamics of complex networks has not been systematically studied so far. Here, we provide heuristic an...

Quenched disorder is known to play a relevant role in dynamical processes and phase transitions. Its effects on the dynamics of complex networks have hardly been studied. Aimed at filling this gap, we analyze the contact process, i.e., the simplest propagation model, with quenched disorder on complex networks. We find Griffiths phases and other rar...

We extend our 2+1 -dimensional discrete growth model [Odor, Phys. Rev. E 79, 021125 (2009)] with conserved, local exchange dynamics of octahedra, describing surface diffusion. A roughening process was realized by uphill diffusion and curvature dependence. By mapping the slopes onto particles, two-dimensional nonequilibrium binary lattice model emer...

We study the lattice reaction diffusion model 3A->4A, A-> (``triplet creation") using numerical simulations and n-site approximations [1]. The simulation results suggest that the phase transition is discontinuous at high diffusion rates. In this regime the order parameter appears to be a discontinuous function of the creation rate; no evidence of a...

We show that d+1-dimensional surface growth models can be mapped onto driven lattice gases of d-mers. The continuous surface growth corresponds to one dimensional drift of d-mers perpendicular to the (d-1-dimensional "plane" spanned by the d-mers. This facilitates efficient bit-coded algorithms with generalized Kawasaki dynamics of spins. Our simul...
