From: Effectiveness variation in simulated school-based network interventions
Name | Description^{a} |
---|---|
Random Uniform (RU) | Each node has an equal chance of selection |
Random by Degree (RD) | Nodes selected with probability proportional to degree |
Friend of Random (FR) | A â€˜nominatorâ€˜ set is randomly selected with equal probability, and each node in that set randomly selects one of their network neighbours to be included in the seed set. |
High Degree (HD) | Descending order by degree - number of edges to other nodes |
Community Leaders (CL) | Highest degree from each community |
Persuasive (P) | Random (uniform) selection, but those selected have greater effect then other nodes during contagion (additional 0.2 transmission probability for simple, or count as two neighbours for complex) |
Community (C) | Randomly selected from largest community found by the Louvain optimisation of modularity. |
