Title: Noise and Delay-Induced Pattern Disruption in Complex Networks
Abstract: Networks form the backbone of complex systems ranging from swarming sensor arrays to ecological foodwebs and social networks, all of which sustain a variety of important dynamical behaviors necessary for some function or task. However, many networks operate in noisy environments, have communication that is susceptible to delay, and fluctuate due to random internal interactions which may cause transitions from one collective network state to another. Such noise and delay-induced events may be associated with desirable outcomes, such as epidemic extinctions, or undesirable, such as loss of network synchrony. In this talk I will address the problem of predicting and controlling complex networks, with many examples, whose dynamics are subjected to disruptive effects.
