In certain artistic endeavours—such as acting in films and TV, where unemployment rates hover at around 90%—sustained productivity (simply making a living) is probably a better proxy for quantifying success than high impact. Drawing on a worldwide database, here we study the temporal profiles of activity of actors and actresses. We show that the dynamics of job assignment is well described by a “rich-get-richer” mechanism and we find that, while the percentage of a career spent active is unpredi...

Due to the emerging of new technologies, the whole electricity system is undergoing transformations on ascale and pace never observed before. In particular, the decentralization of energy resources and the smartgrid have changed the rules of the game and have forced utilities to rethink therelationships with the customers. The so-called demand response (DR) seeks to adjust the demand for powerinstead of adjusting the supply. However, DR business models rely on customer participation and are effe...

In this letter, we propose a method to control a set of arbitrary nodes in a directed network such that they follow a synchronous trajectory which is, in general, not shared by the other units of the network. The problem is inspired to those natural or artificial networks whose proper operating conditions are associated to the presence of clusters of synchronous nodes. Our proposed method is based on the introduction of distributed controllers that modify the topology of the connections in order...

Complex networks have been successfully used to describe the spreading of a disease in populations of interacting individuals. Conversely, pairwise interactions are often not enough to characterize processes of social contagion, such as opinion formation or the adoption of novelties, where more complex dynamics of peer influence and reinforcement mechanisms are at work. Here we introduce a high-order model of social contagion in which a social system is represented by a simplicial complex and th...

Abstract As the energy transition transforms power grids across the globe, it poses several challenges regarding grid design and control. In particular, high levels of intermittent renewable generation complicate the task of continuously balancing power supply and demand, requiring sufficient control actions. Although there exist several proposals to control the grid, most of them have not demonstrated to be cost efficient in terms of optimal control theory. Here, we mathematically formulate an ...

By drawing on large-scale online data we construct and analyze the time-varying worldwide network of professional relationships among start-ups. The nodes of this network represent companies, while the links model the flow of employees and the associated transfer of know-how across companies. We use network centrality measures to assess, at an early stage, the likelihood of the long-term positive performance of a start-up, showing that the start-up network has predictive power and provides valua...
