[1306.5777] Chaos at Fifty

Abstract: In 1963 Edward Lorenz revealed deterministic predictability to be an illusion and gave birth to a field that still thrives. This Feature …

Susceptible-infected-susceptible epidemics on networks with general infection and cure times

The classical, continuous-time susceptible-infected-susceptible (SIS) Markov epidemic model on an arbitrary network is extended to incorporate …

Stationary energy probability density of oscillators driven by a random external force

We derive rigorous analytical results for the stationary energy probability density function of linear and nonlinear oscillators driven by additive …
