Communication boundaries in networks
2005 (English)In: Physical Review Letters, ISSN 0031-9007, Vol. 94, no 23, 238701- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We investigate and quantify the interplay between topology and the ability to send specific signals in complex networks. We find that in a majority of investigated real-world networks the ability to communicate is favored by the network topology at small distances, but disfavored at larger distances. We further suggest how the ability to locate specific nodes can be improved if information associated with the overall traffic in the network is available.
