Abstract

The study of networks, and identification of key players within them, is a constant challenge in fields ranging from transportation to biological systems. As experimental methods are often too costly and inefficient in large networks to assign value to particular network components, several algorithms have been designed to identify the most influential nodes computationally. However, current methods do not address the multi-dimensionality of networks and their inherent biases. Here, we present a novel method, the Integrated Value of Influence (IVI), that effectively handles such challenges and accurately calculates the influence of each individual within a network.
