Description | In networks where edges represent a contact, a phone-call, an email, or physical proximity between two entities at a specific point in time, one gets an evolving network structure. One useful way to investigate temporal networks is to transform the temporal graph (sequence of timestamped edges) into a (static) temporal reachability graph representing the possible flow of information/influence, etc. The temporal reachability graph is formed by placing an edge in the temporal reachability graph if there exists a "strong" temporal path between two vertices (in both directions: from u to v, and from v to u). Hence, a temporal path represents a sequence of contacts that obeys time and therefore an edge in the temporal reachability graph represents the fact that a user could have transmitted a piece of information (or disease, etc) to that user (and vice-versa). This temporal graph representation is extremely useful for analyzing such networks and for planning applications. For instance, a temporal strong component is a set of vertices where all pairwise temporal paths exist. |
