  • QUANTIFYING THE RELATION BETWEEN PERFORMANCE AND SUCCESS IN SOCCER
    • Authors: LUCA PAPPALARDO, PAOLO CINTIA
      Abstract: Advances in Complex Systems, Ahead of Print.
      The availability of massive data about sports activities offers nowadays the opportunity to quantify the relation between performance and success. In this study, we analyze more than 6000 games and 10 million events in six European leagues and investigate this relation in soccer competitions. We discover that a team’s position in a competition’s final ranking is significantly related to its typical performance, as described by a set of technical features extracted from the soccer data. Moreover, we find that, while victory and defeats can be explained by the team’s performance during a game, it is difficult to detect draws by using a machine learning approach. We then simulate the outcomes of an entire season of each league only relying on technical data and exploiting a machine learning model trained on data from past seasons. The simulation produces a team ranking which is similar to the actual ranking, suggesting that a complex systems’ view on soccer has the potential of revealing hidden patterns regarding the relation between performance and success.

  • OPINION DIFFUSION ON MULTILAYER SOCIAL NETWORKS
    • Authors: HAI-BO HU, CANG-HAI LI, QING-YING MIAO
      Abstract: Advances in Complex Systems, Ahead of Print.
      In this paper, to reveal the influence of multilayer network structure on opinion diffusion in social networks, we study an opinion dynamics model based on DeGroot model on multilayer networks. We find that if the influence matrix integrating the information of connectedness for each layer and correlation between layers is strongly connected and aperiodic, all agents’ opinions will reach a consensus. However, if there are stubborn agents in the networks, regular agents’ opinions will finally be confined to the convex combinations of the stubborn agents’. Specifically, if all stubborn agents hold the same opinion, even if the agents only exist on a certain layer, their opinions will diffuse to the entire multilayer networks. This paper not only characterizes the influence of multilayer network topology and agent attribute on opinion diffusion in a holistic way, but also demonstrates the importance of coupling agents which play an indispensable role in some social and economic situations.

  • GENDER DISPARITIES IN SCIENCE' DROPOUT, PRODUCTIVITY, COLLABORATIONS
           AND SUCCESS OF MALE AND FEMALE COMPUTER SCIENTISTS
    • Authors: MOHSEN JADIDI, FARIBA KARIMI, HAIKO LIETZ, CLAUDIA WAGNER
      Abstract: Advances in Complex Systems, Ahead of Print.
      Scientific collaborations shape ideas as well as innovations and are both the substrate for, and the outcome of, academic careers. Recent studies show that gender inequality is still present in many scientific practices ranging from hiring to peer-review processes and grant applications. In this work, we investigate gender-specific differences in collaboration patterns of more than one million computer scientists over the course of 47 years. We explore how these patterns change over years and career ages and how they impact scientific success. Our results highlight that successful male and female scientists reveal the same collaboration patterns: compared to scientists in the same career age, they tend to collaborate with more colleagues than other scientists, seek innovations as brokers and establish longer-lasting and more repetitive collaborations. However, women are on average less likely to adopt the collaboration patterns that are related with success, more likely to embed into ego networks devoid of structural holes, and they exhibit stronger gender homophily as well as a consistently higher dropout rate than men in all career ages.

  • ROLE OF NEUTRAL EVOLUTION IN WORD TURNOVER DURING CENTURIES OF ENGLISH
           WORD POPULARITY
    • Authors: DAMIAN RUCK, R. ALEXANDER BENTLEY, ALBERTO ACERBI, PHILIP GARNETT, DANIEL J. HRUSCHKA
      Abstract: Advances in Complex Systems, Ahead of Print.
      Here, we test Neutral models against the evolution of English word frequency and vocabulary at the corpus scale, as recorded in annual word frequencies from three centuries of English language books. Against these data, we test both static and dynamic predictions of two neutral models, including the relation between corpus size and vocabulary size, frequency distributions, and turnover within those frequency distributions. Although a commonly used Neutral model fails to replicate all these emergent properties at once, we find that modified two-stage Neutral model does replicate the static and dynamic properties of the corpus data. This two-stage model is meant to represent a relatively small corpus of English books, analogous to a ‘canon’, sampled by an exponentially increasing corpus of books among the wider population of authors. More broadly, this model — a smaller neutral model within a larger neutral model — could represent more broadly those situations where mass attention is focused on a small subset of the cultural variants.

  • SUSTAINABILITY NARROWNESS
    • Authors: ARNAUD Z. DRAGICEVIC, JASON F. SHOGREN
      Abstract: Advances in Complex Systems, Ahead of Print.
      We study the resilience of a multiplex socio-ecological system (SES) which we structure from the spheres composing the sustainability Venn diagram. The SES network is subject to dynamics of spread of a global reform through a knock-on effect, as a direct and indirect repercussion of a small-scale reform process that spreads out over time through network connectivity. The model outcomes reveal that high probability of reform completion on an SES layer through nodes previously reformed on other SES layers is necessary and sufficient to propagate the desired reform on that layer. The maximum asymptotic density of reformed nodes can only be achieved in the absence of risk of reform abrogation. When the risk is significant, it prevents the equilibrium density from reaching a steady state. The numerical simulation results show that the combination of likely probability of reform completion and of proportional influence of all layers yields the maximum magnitude of efficiency of the knock-on effect. We provide a formal argument that favors assigning equal weight to all aspects of sustainable development.

  • COOPERATION IN THE WELL-MIXED TWO-POPULATION SNOWDRIFT GAME WITH
           PUNISHMENT ENFORCED THROUGH DIFFERENT MECHANISMS
    • Authors: ANDRÉ BARREIRA DA SILVA ROCHA
      Abstract: Advances in Complex Systems, Ahead of Print.
      I study two mechanisms based on punishment to promote cooperation in the well-mixed two-population snowdrift game (SG). The first mechanism follows a standard approach in the literature and is based on the inclusion of a third additional pure strategy in the payoff matrix of the stage-game. Differently, the second mechanism consists of letting cooperators punish defectors with a given exogenous frequency. In the latter, the pure strategy cooperation is replaced by a mixed strategy in which cooperators randomize between cooperation and punishment against defectors. While both mechanisms share the same result regarding the minimum required level of punishment in order to eliminate defectors in both populations, stability in the mechanism following the second approach is more robust in the sense that extinction of defectors is a globally asymptotically stable state for any interior initial conditions in the phase space. Thus, the second mechanism displays a topologically simpler model but the robustness of the evolutionary equilibrium is improved. Results were obtained analytically through nonlinear differential equations and also using an agent-based simulation. There was a good level of agreement between both approaches with respect to the evolutionary pattern over time and the possible steady-states.

  • A DETERMINISTIC APPROACH TO THE SYNCHRONIZATION OF NONLINEAR CELLULAR
           AUTOMATA
    • Authors: J. DE ABREU, P. GARCÍA, J. GARCÍA
      Abstract: Advances in Complex Systems, Ahead of Print.
      In this work, we introduce a deterministic scheme of synchronization of nonlinear cellular automata with chaotic behavior, connected through a master–slave coupling. By using a definition of Boolean derivative, we utilize the linear approximation of the cellular automata rules to design a deterministic and simple coupling function that ensures synchronization. Our results show that it is possible to synchronize nonlinear chaotic cellular automata using a deterministic coupling function that does not introduce into the slave all the information about the state of the master.

  • CONTROL ENERGY AND CONTROLLABILITY OF MULTILAYER NETWORKS
    • Authors: DINGJIE WANG, XIUFEN ZOU
      Abstract: Advances in Complex Systems, Ahead of Print.
      The controllability of multilayer networks has become increasingly important in many areas of science and engineering. In this paper, we identify the general rules that determine the controllability and control energy cost of multilayer networks. First, we quantitatively estimate the control energy cost of multilayer networks and investigate the impacts of different coupling strength and coupling patterns on the control energy cost for multilayer networks. The results indicate that the average energy and the coupling strength have an approximately linear relationship in multilayer networks with two layers. Second, we study how the coupling strength and the connection patterns between different layers affect the controllability of multilayer networks from both theoretical and numerical aspects. The obtained piecewise functional relations between the controllability’s measure and coupling strength reveal the existence of an optimal coupling strength for the different interconnection strategies in multilayer networks. In particular, the numerical experiments demonstrate that there exists a tradeoff between the optimal controllability and optimal control energy for selecting interlayer connection patterns in multilayer networks. These results provide a comprehensive understanding of the impact of interlayer couplings on the controllability and control energy cost for multilayer networks and provide a methodology for selecting the control nodes and coupling strength to maximize the controllability and minimize the control energy cost.

  • MARKET FLUCTUATIONS EXPLAINED BY DIVIDENDS AND INVESTOR NETWORKS
    • Authors: MATTHEW OLDHAM
      Abstract: Advances in Complex Systems, Ahead of Print.
      The inability of investors and academics to consistently predict, and understand the behavior of financial markets has forced the search for alternative analytical frameworks. Analyzing financial markets as complex systems is a framework that has demonstrated great promises, with the use of agent-based models (ABMs) and the inclusion of network science playing an important role in increasing the relevance of the framework. Using an artificial stock market created via an ABM, this paper provides a significant insight into the mechanisms that drive the returns in financial markets, including periods of elevated prices and excess volatility. The paper demonstrates that the network topology that investors form and the dividend policy of firms significantly affect the behavior of the market. However, if investors have a bias to following their neighbors then the topology becomes redundant. By successfully addressing these issues this paper helps refine and shape a variety of additional research tasks for the use of ABMs in uncovering the dynamics of financial markets.

  • LEARNING TO INCENTIVIZE IN DIFFERENT MODES OF COORDINATION
    • Authors: FRIEDERIKE WALL
      Abstract: Advances in Complex Systems, Ahead of Print.
      The paper studies which incentive systems emerge in organizations when self-interested managers collaboratively search for higher levels of organizational performance and the headquarters learn about the success of the incentive systems employed. The study uses an agent-based simulation and, in particular, controls for different levels of intra-organizational complexity and modes of coordination, i.e., the way how preferences on the departmental site are aligned with each other in respect to the overall organizational objective. The results indicate that for different levels of intra-organizational complexity different incentive systems emerge: With lower intra-organizational complexity, in tendency, the less focus is put on firm performance and vice versa. However, results also suggest that the mode of coordination may considerably affect the emergence of the incentive structure. This provides support for the idea that multiple management controls, like the incentive system and the mode of coordination, should be regarded and designed as a system with interrelations among its components and not just as a collection of several control practices.

  • MEASURING BRAND AWARENESS IN A RANDOM UTILITY MODEL
    • Authors: PIERFRANCESCO DOTTA, MARCO TOLOTTI, JORGE YEPEZ
      Abstract: Advances in Complex Systems, Ahead of Print.
      Brand awareness is recognized to be an important determinant in shaping the success of durables [13, 16], yet it is very difficult to be quantified. This is exactly the main goal of this paper: propose a suitable model where brand awareness of two competing firms is modeled and, eventually, estimated. To this aim, we build a random utility model for a duopoly where each competitor is characterized by different pricing strategies and brand awareness. As a result, different levels of market shares will emerge at the equilibrium. As a case study, we calibrate the model with real data from the smartphone industry obtaining an estimate of the value of the brand awareness of two leading brands.

  • INTERMITTENT BEHAVIOR INDUCED BY ASYNCHRONOUS INTERACTIONS IN A CONTINUOUS
           DOUBLE AUCTION MODEL
    • Authors: KAZUTO SASAI, YUKIO-PEGIO GUNJI, TETSUO KINOSHITA
      Abstract: Advances in Complex Systems, Ahead of Print.
      Continuous asynchronous trading activity is a key to understanding real-world market behavior. However, it is not easy to implement an agent-based computational market model because of the ambiguity between time and space. In this study, we use a model of asynchrony in a continuous double auction market in the form of noise and order restrictions to link inside- and outside- uncertainties in the economic system. Our model shows intermittent behavior with a small parameter value, which leads to the misapplication of the price-update rule, and consequently drives burst behavior. The statistical property of time development shows a similar tendency to that in previous empirical studies. Thus, it demonstrates the relationship between the asynchronous property and the complexity of economic systems.
