Reaction-Diffusion Processes on Interconnected Scale-Free Networks

Physical Review E (2015)


We study the two - particle annihilation reaction A + B→∅ on interconnected scale - free networks, using different interconnecting strategies. We explore how the mixing of particles and the process evolution are influenced by the number of interconnecting links, by their functional properties, and by the interconnectivity strategies in use. We show that the reaction rates on this system are faster than what was observed in other topologies, due to the better particle mixing that suppresses the segregation effect, in line with previous studies performed on single scale - free networks.
