Abstract

Complex networks are essential tools to model propagation processes in society, such as epidemics and rumors. The study of such processes allows the prediction of the spread of diseases in the real world, as well as the development of effective immunization strategies. However, most network models do not consider the diversity of interactions between individuals, nor the influence of knowledge about the disease in its propagation. These aspects can only be modeled with the multilayer network formalism, which has attracted great attention in the last years. This project proposes the study of propagation processes in multilayer networks. The influence of the network structure on the propagation process will be analyzed, considering diversities in the transmission routes, types of social contact and susceptibility of infection in each individual. Finally, we shall study the coupling between epidemics and rumors spreading, in which the information about the epidemic can impact its propagation. This study allows the planning of efficient immunization and information campaigns, taking into account the multilayer structure of the interactions. (AU)
