2. Brief introduction to our group What is a random walk Important parameter of random walks Applications of random walks Our work on Random walks: trapping in complex networks Contents

3. Brief introduction to our group • Research directions:structure and dynamics in networks • Modeling networks and Structural analysis • Spectrum analysis and its application • Enumeration problems: spanning trees, perfect matching, Hamilton paths • Dynamics: Random walks, percolation

9. 重要指标 Important parameters of random walks First-Passage TimeF(s,t): Expected number of steps to reach t starting at s Mean Commute timeC(s,t): Steps from i to j, and then go backC(t,s) = F(s,t) + F(t,s) Mean Return timeT(s,s): mean time for returning to node sfor the first time after having left it Cover time, survival problity, …… New J. Phys. 7, 26 (2005)

10. Applications of random walks • PageRank algorithm • Community detection • Recommendation systems • Electrical circuits (resistances) • Information Retrieval • Natural Language Processing • Machine Learning • Graph partitioning • In economics: random walk hypothesis

11. Application to Community detection • World Wide Web • Citation networks • Social networks • Biological networks • Food Webs Properties of community may be quite different from the average property of network. More links “inside” than “outside”

12. Application to recommendation systems IEEE Trans. Knowl. Data Eng. 19, 355 (2007)

13. Connections with electrical networks • Every edge – a resistor of 1 ohm. • Voltage difference of 1 volt between u and v. R(u,v) – inverse of electrical current from u to v. v _ + u C(u,v) = F(s,t) + F(t,s) =2mR(u,v), dz is degree of z, m is the number of edges

14. Formulas for effective resistance

15. Random walks and other topologies • Communtity structure • Spanning trees • Average distance EPL (Europhysics Letters), 2010, 90:68002

16. Our work: Random walks on complex networks with an immobile trap Consider again a random walk process in a network. In a communication or a social network, a message can disappear; for example, due to failure. How long will the message survive before being trapped?

17. Our work • Random walks on scale-free networks • A pseudofractal scale-free web • Apollonian networks • Modular scale-free networks • Koch networks • A fractal scale-free network • Scale-free networks with the same degree sequences • Random walks on exponential networks • Random walks on fractals

18. Main contributions • Methods for finding Mean first-passage time (MFPT) • Backward equations • Generating functions • Laplacian spectra • Electrical networks • Uncover the impacts of structures on MFPT • Scale-free behavior • Tree-like structure • Modular structure • Fractal structure
