Direct, physically motivated derivation of the contagion condition for spreading processes on generalized random networks
Physical Review E, 83, 056122, 2011
Abstract: For a broad range single-seed contagion processes acting on generalized random networks, we derive a unifying analytic expression for the possibility of global spreading events in a straightforward, physically intuitive fashion. Our reasoning lays bare a direct mechanical understanding of an archetypal spreading phenomena that is not evident in circuitous extant mathematical approaches.
