A method for validating Rent’s rule for technological and biological networks
(Springer Nature, 2017-07-14)
Rent’s rule is empirical power law introduced in an effort to describe and optimize the wiring complexity of computer logic graphs. It is known that brain and neuronal networks also obey Rent’s rule, which is consistent ...
Evolutionary regime transitions in structured populations
The evolutionary dynamics of a finite population where resident individuals are replaced by mutant ones depends on its spatial structure. Usually, the population adopts the form of an undirected graph where the place ...
Exploring the topological sources of robustness against invasion in biological and technological networks
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-02-10)
For a network, the accomplishment of its functions despite perturbations is called robustness. Although this property has been extensively studied, in most cases, the network is modified by removing nodes. In our approach, ...
Suppressors of selection
(Public Library of Science, 2017-07)
Inspired by recent works on evolutionary graph theory, an area of growing interest in mathematical and computational biology, we present examples of undirected structures acting as suppressors of selection for any fitness ...
