Significance We examine the effects of an uneven population distribution on the spread of the COVID-19 disease spread, using a diffusion model based on interpersonal contact networks. Taking into account spatial heterogeneity, the spread of COVID-19 is much “burstier” than in standard epidemiological models, with substantial local disparities in ti...

The exponential-family random graph models (ERGMs) have emerged as an important framework for modeling social and other networks. ERGMs for valued networks are less well-studied than their unvalued counterparts, and pose particular computational challenges. Networks with edge values on the non-negative integers (count-valued networks) are an import...

The uneven spread of COVID-19 has resulted in disparate experiences for marginalized populations in urban centers. Using computational models, we examine the effects of local cohesion on COVID-19 spread in social contact networks for the city of San Francisco, finding that more early COVID-19 infections occur in areas with strong local cohesion. Th...

Despite the popular narrative that the United States is a "land of mobility," its internal migration rates have declined for decades, and reached a historical low. Economic and related factors were able to account for a portion of this trend, but the bulk has remained unexplained. Here, we propose a systemic, relational model of internal migration...

Standard epidemiological models for COVID-19 employ variants of compartment (SIR) models at local scales, implicitly assuming spatially uniform local mixing. Here, we examine the effect of employing more geographically detailed diffusion models based on known spatial features of interpersonal networks, most particularly the presence of a long-taile...

Hello: I came across the term, fides implicita ("绝对信仰" in Chinese) when reading the Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism. As a freshman, the explanation on the Internet is too difficult for me. Could you please explain it in an easier way? Thank you.
