Nonlinear diffusion through large complex networks containing regular subgraphs

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Transport through generalized trees is considered. Trees contain the simple nodes and supernodes, either well-structured regular subgraphs or those with many triangles. We observe a superdiffusion for the highly connected nodes while it is Brownian for the rest of the nodes. Transport within a supernode is affected by the finite size effects vanishing as N → ∞. For the even dimensions of space, d = 2, 4, 6,..., the finite size effects break down the perturbation theory at small scales and can be regularized by using the heat-kernel expansion. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2007.
