Shock waves on complex networks

Shock waves on complex networks | Data Visualization & Open data | Scoop.it
Power grids, road maps, and river streams are examples of infrastructural networks which are highly vulnerable to external perturbations. An abrupt local change of load (voltage, traffic density, or water level) might propagate in a cascading way and affect a significant fraction of the network. Almost discontinuous perturbations can be modeled by shock waves which can eventually interfere constructively and endanger the normal functionality of the infrastructure. We study their dynamics by solving the Burgers equation under random perturbations on several real and artificial directed graphs. Even for graphs with a narrow distribution of node properties (e.g., degree or betweenness), a steady state is reached exhibiting a heterogeneous load distribution, having a difference of one order of magnitude between the highest and average loads. Unexpectedly we find for the European power grid and for finite Watts-Strogatz networks a broad pronounced bimodal distribution for the loads. To identify the most vulnerable nodes, we introduce the concept of node-basin size, a purely topological property which we show to be strongly correlated to the average load of a node.Shock waves on complex networks • Enys Mones, Nuno A.

Indeed, this is intuitive enough without the mathematics to back it up.  This could be mapped out and used for prioritizing the defense or attack of various points within the network, either in the digital or analog worlds.

My most contagious meme is called BallDroppings. My most visible work is in film and television. My art shows in galleries and museums.

Best Tools for Better Web Typography

Best Tools for Better Web Typography | Data Visualization & Open data | Scoop.it
Good typography is not only limited to choosing a typeface or deciding one typeface from another. Rather, it is a process of thoroughly arranging type in order to make the language visible. The arrangement considers the selection of line spacing, line length, point size, adjusting the space between group of letters or pair of letters. In addition, it includes the right combination of colors. Typography and content makes up 90% of what the site is. So if you want to have a good looking site you need to pay attention to your typography.The whole process of creating fonts may be a little tricky and time consuming. However, with the use of various typography tools, the process makes things easy and effective. Even professional designers use these tools because not everyone is perfect in typography. Below we have listed the best typography tools to help you find the right one for your design need

Theoretical physics: The origins of space and time

Theoretical physics: The origins of space and time | Data Visualization & Open data | Scoop.it
Many researchers believe that physics will not be complete until it can explain not just the behavior of space and time, but where these entities come from.“Imagine waking up one day and realizing that you actually live inside a computer game,” says Mark Van Raamsdonk, describing what sounds like a pitch for a science-fiction film. But for Van Raamsdonk, a physicist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, this scenario is a way to think about reality. If it is true, he says, “everything around us — the whole three-dimensional physical world — is an illusion born from information encoded elsewhere, on a two-dimensional chip”. That would make our Universe, with its three spatial dimensions, a kind of hologram, projected from a substrate that exists only in lower dimensions.This 'holographic principle' is strange even by the usual standards of theoretical physics. But Van Raamsdonk is one of a small band of researchers who think that the usual ideas are not yet strange enough. If nothing else, they say, neither of the two great pillars of modern physics — general relativity, which describes gravity as a curvature of space and time, and quantum mechanics, which governs the atomic realm — gives any account for the existence of space and time. Neither does string theory, which describes elementary threads of energy.Van Raamsdonk and his colleagues are convinced that physics will not be complete until it can explain how space and time emerge from something more fundamental — a project that will require concepts at least as audacious as holography. They argue that such a radical reconceptualization of reality is the only way to explain what happens when the infinitely dense 'singularity' at the core of a black hole distorts the fabric of space-time beyond all recognition, or how researchers can unify atomic-level quantum theory and planet-level general relativity — a project that has resisted theorists' efforts for generations.“All our experiences tell us we shouldn't have two dramatically different conceptions of reality — there must be one huge overarching theory,” says Abhay Ashtekar, a physicist at Pennsylvania State University in University Park.Finding that one huge theory is a daunting challenge. Here, Nature explores some promising lines of attack — as well as some of the emerging ideas about how to test these concepts (see 'The fabric of reality').

22 Must have photoshop plugins for photographers | Data Visualization & Open data | Scoop.it
Photoshop is a strong, multi platform image and video editing tool. This is an amazing tool used not only to edit high-quality videos and even 3D renders to a great extent. Being one of the best products of Adobe, this graphics editing tool is widely used in various domains. It is considered as a sword by many photographers because it helps them carve out the best pictures from the slight random glimpse of life that they have captured. Photoshop provides a huge variety of tools and plug-ins to edit images not only on desktop but also directly on blogs and social websites. I will be listing some of these plug-ins that are used by the top photographers to produce the best of their works efficiently.
