Averaged kinetic models for flows on complex networks

Prof. Christian Ringhofer

Arizona State University

Abstract:   We propose a kinetic model for flows on arbitrarily complex networks. Large time averages of the model equations give a drift - diffusion model on time scales, not reproducable by Monte Carlo simulations. Applications to social and economic networks are discussed.
