Abstract
Let a random geometric graph be defined in the supercritical regime for the existence of a unique infinite connected component in Euclidean space. Consider the firstpassage percolation model with independent and identically distributed random variables on the random infinite connected component. We provide sufficient conditions for the existence of the asymptotic shape and we show that the shape is an Euclidean ball. We give some examples exhibiting the result for Bernoulli percolation and the Richardson model. For the Richardson model we further show that it converges weakly to a branching process in the joint limit of large intensities and slow passing times.

Abstract
We consider a hybrid spatial communication system in which mobile nodes can connect to static sinks in a bounded number of intermediate relaying hops. We describe the distribution of the connection intervals of a typical mobile node, i.e., the intervals of uninterrupted connection to the family of sinks. This is achieved in the limit of many hops, sparse sinks and growing time horizons. We identify three regimes illustrating that the limiting distribution depends sensitively on the scaling of the time horizon.

Abstract
We introduce an agentbased model for coevolving opinion and social dynamics, under the influence of multiplicative noise. In this model, every agent is characterized by a position in a social space and a continuous opinion state variable. Agents? movements are governed by positions and opinions of other agents and similarly, the opinion dynamics is influenced by agents? spatial proximity and their opinion similarity. Using numerical simulations and formal analysis, we study this feedback loop between opinion dynamics and mobility of agents in a social space. We investigate the behavior of this ABM in different regimes and explore the influence of various factors on appearance of emerging phenomena such as group formation and opinion consensus. We study the empirical distribution and in the limit of infinite number of agents we derive a corresponding reduced model given by a partial differential equation (PDE). Finally, using numerical examples we show that a resulting PDE model is a good approximation of the original ABM.

Abstract
We consider the locally thinned Bernoulli field on ℤ ^{d}, which is the lattice version of the TypeI Matérn hardcore process in Euclidean space. It is given as the lattice field of occupation variables, obtained as image of an i.i.d. Bernoulli lattice field with occupation probability p, under the map which removes all particles with neighbors, while keeping the isolated particles. We prove that the thinned measure has a Gibbsian representation and provide control on its quasilocal dependence, both in the regime of small p, but also in the regime of large p, where the thinning transformation changes the Bernoulli measure drastically. Our methods rely on Dobrushin uniqueness criteria, disagreement percolation arguments [46], and cluster expansions

Abstract
We prove the sharpness of the percolation phase transition for a class of Cox percolation models, i.e., models of continuum percolation in a random environment. The key requirements are that the environment has a finite range of dependence and satisfies a local boundedness condition, however the FKG inequality need not hold. The proof combines the OSSS inequality with a coarsegraining construction.

Abstract
We study phase transition and percolation at criticality for three random graph models on the plane, viz., the homogeneous and inhomogeneous enhanced random connection models (RCM) and the Poisson stick model. These models are built on a homogeneous Poisson point process P?P? in R2R2 of intensity ?. In the homogeneous RCM, the vertices at x,y are connected with probability g( x ? y ), independent of everything else, where g:[0,?)?[0,1]g:[0,?)?[0,1] and ? is the Euclidean norm. In the inhomogeneous version of the model, points of P?P? are endowed with weights that are nonnegative independent random variables with distribution P(W>w)=w??1[1,?)(w)P(W>w)=w??1[1,?)(w), ? >?0. Vertices located at x,y with weights Wx,Wy are connected with probability 1?exp(??WxWy x?y ?)1?exp?(??WxWy x?y ?), ?,? >?0, independent of all else. The graphs are enhanced by considering the edges of the graph as straight line segments starting and ending at points of P?P?. A path in the graph is a continuous curve that is a subset of the union of all these line segments. The Poisson stick model consists of line segments of independent random lengths and orientation with the mid point of each segment located at a distinct point of P?P?. Intersecting lines form a path in the graph. A graph is said to percolate if there is an infinite connected component or path. We derive conditions for the existence of a phase transition and show that there is no percolation at criticality.

Abstract
We study the effects of mobility on two crucial characteristics in multiscale dynamic networks: percolation and connection times. Our analysis provides insights into the question, to what extent longtime averages are wellapproximated by the expected values of the corresponding quantities, i.e., the percolation and connection probabilities. In particular, we show that in multiscale models, strong random effects may persist in the limit. Depending on the precise model choice, these may take the form of a spatial birthdeath process or a Brownian motion. Despite the variety of structures that appear in the limit, we show that they can be tackled in a common framework with the potential to be applicable more generally in order to identify limits in dynamic spatial network models going beyond the examples considered in the present work.

Abstract
We consider the Boolean model with random radii based on Cox point processes. Under a condition of stabilization for the random environment, we establish existence and nonexistence of subcritical regimes for the size of the cluster at the origin in terms of volume, diameter and number of points. Further, we prove uniqueness of the infinite cluster for sufficiently connected environments.

Abstract
We consider undirected graphs that arise as deterministic functions of stationary point processes such that each point has degree bounded by two. For a large class of point processes and edgedrawing rules, we show that the arising graph has no infinite connected component, almost surely. In particular, this extends our previous result for SINR graphs based on stabilizing Cox point processes and verifies the conjecture of Balister and Bollobás that the bidirectional $k$nearest neighbor graph of a twodimensional homogeneous Poisson point process does not percolate for k=2.

Abstract
Signaltointerference plus noise ratio (SINR) percolation is an infiniterange dependent variant of continuum percolation modeling connections in a telecommunication network. Unlike in earlier works, in the present paper the transmitted signal powers of the devices of the network are assumed random, i.i.d. and possibly unbounded. Additionally, we assume that the devices form a stationary Cox point process, i.e., a Poisson point process with stationary random intensity measure, in two or higher dimensions. We present the following main results. First, under suitable moment conditions on the signal powers and the intensity measure, there is percolation in the SINR graph given that the device density is high and interferences are sufficiently reduced, but not vanishing. Second, if the interference cancellation factor γ and the SINR threshold τ satisfy γ ≥ 1/(2τ), then there is no percolation for any intensity parameter. Third, in the case of a Poisson point process with constant powers, for any intensity parameter that is supercritical for the underlying Gilbert graph, the SINR graph also percolates with some small but positive interference cancellation factor.

Abstract
This paper presents a new multiagent model for simulating malware propagation in devicetodevice (D2D) 5G networks. This model allows to understand and analyze mobile malwarespreading dynamics in such highly dynamical networks. Additionally, we present a theoretical study to validate and benchmark our proposed approach for some basic scenarios that are less complicated to model mathematically and also to highlight the key parameters of the model. Our simulations identify critical thresholds for em no propagation and for em maximum malware propagation and make predictions on the malwarespread velocity as well as deviceinfection rates. To the best of our knowledge, this paper is the first study applying agentbased simulations for malware propagation in D2D.

A classical approach for the analysis of the longtime behavior of Markov processes is to consider suitable Lyapunov functionals like the variance or more generally Φ entropies. Via purely analytic arguments it can be shown that these functionals are indeed nonincreasing in time under quite general assumptions on the process. We complement these classical results via a more probabilistic approach and show that dissipation is already present on the level of individual trajectories for spatiallyextended systems of infinitely many interacting particles with arbitrary underlying geometry and compact local spin spaces. This extends previous results from the setting of finitestate Markov chains or diffusions in R^{n } to an infinitedimensional setting with weak assumptions on the dynamics.

We study the weightdependent random connection model, a class of sparse graphs featuring many realworld properties such as heavytailed degree distributions and clustering. We introduce a coefficient, (deltaf), measuring the effect of the degreedistribution on the occurrence of long edges. We identify a sharp phase transition in (deltaf) for the existence of a giant component in dimension (d=1).

By refining Holley's free energy technique, we show that, under quite general assumptions on the dynamics, the attractor of a (possibly nontranslationinvariant) interacting particle system in one or two spatial dimensions is contained in the set of Gibbs measures if the dynamics admits a reversible Gibbs measure. In particular, this implies that there can be no reversible interacting particle system that exhibits timeperiodic behaviour and that every reversible interacting particle system is ergodic if and only if the reversible Gibbs measure is unique. In the special case of nonattractive stochastic Ising models this answers a question due to Liggett.

We derive a sufficient condition for the existence of a subcritical percolation phase for a wide range of continuum percolation models where each vertex is embedded into Euclidean space and carries an independent weight. In contrast to many established models, the presence of an edge is not only allowed to depend on the distance and weights of its end vertices but can also depend on the surrounding vertex set. Our result can be applied in particular to models combining heavytailed degree distributions and longrange effects, which are typically well connected. Moreover, we establish bounds on the taildistribution of the number of points and the diameter of the subcritical component of a typical point. The proofs rest on a multiscale argument.

The present paper features results on global survival and extinction of an infection in a multilayer network of mobile agents. Expanding on a model first presented in CHJW22, we consider an urban environment, represented by linesegments in the plane, in which agents move according to a random waypoint model based on a Poisson point process. Whenever two agents are at sufficiently close proximity for a sufficiently long time the infection can be transmitted and then propagates into the system according to the same rule starting from a typical device. Inspired by wireless network architectures, the network is additionally equipped with a second class of agents that is able to transmit a patch to neighboring infected agents that in turn can further distribute the patch, leading to a chaseescape dynamics. We give conditions for parameter configurations that guarantee existence and absence of global survival as well as an inandout of the survival regime, depending on the speed of the devices. We also provide complementary results for the setting in which the chaseescape dynamics is defined as an independent process on the connectivity graph. The proofs mainly rest on percolation arguments via discretization and multiscale analysis.

In this paper we present results for an extended class of multiagent simulation models for malware propagation in devicetodevice 5G networks, first exhibited in citeAgentBasedAAMAS. The models allow to understand and analyze mobile malware spreading dynamics in highly dynamical networks and also to assess the effectiveness of a proposed counter measure policy for reversing attacks and securing the system. Our main simulation studies identify critical thresholds for maximal malware propagation and isolate two distinguished regimes for malware survival and extermination depending on a variety of parameters. We further predict via simulations the malware spreading velocities, depending on device density and speed, as well as the percentage of counter agents that have to be introduced into the network for malware elimination. We complement these findings and state also an associated theoretical study that highlights the key parameters of our agentbased model and exhibit certain linear relationships between them [1].

In this article we setup a dynamic devicetodevice communication system where devices, given as a Poisson point process, move in an environment, given by a street system of random planartessellation type, via a randomwaypoint model. Every device independently picks a target location on the street system using a general waypoint kernel, and travels to the target along the shortest path on the streets with an individual velocity. Then, any pair of devices becomes connected whenever they are on the same street in sufficiently close proximity, for a sufficiently long time. After presenting some general properties of the multiparameter system, we focus on an analysis of the clustering behavior of the random connectivity graph. In our main results we isolate regimes for the almostsure absence of percolation if, for example, the device intensity is too small, or the connectivity time is too large. On the other hand, we exhibit parameter regimes of sufficiently large intensities of devices, under favorable choices of the other parameters, such that percolation is possible with positive probability. Most interestingly, we also show an inandout of percolation as the velocity increases. The rigorous analysis of the system mainly rests on comparison arguments with simplified models via spatial coarse graining and thinning approaches. Here we also make contact to geostatistical percolation models with infiniterange dependencies.

We prove nontrivial phase transitions for continuum percolation in a Boolean model based on a Cox point process with nonstabilizing directing measure. The directing measure, which can be seen as a stationary random environment for the classical PoissonBoolean model, is given by a planar rectangular Poisson line process. This Manhattan grid type construction features longrange dependencies in the environment, leading to absence of a sharp phase transition for the associated CoxBoolean model. Our proofs rest on discretization arguments and a comparison to percolation on randomly stretched lattices established in [MR2116736].

We consider irreversible translationinvariant interacting particle systems on the ddimensional cubic lattice with finite local state space, which admit at least one Gibbs measure as a timestationary measure. Under some mild degeneracy conditions on the rates and the specification we prove, that zero relative entropy loss of a translationinvariant measure implies, that the measure is Gibbs w.r.t. the same specification as the timestationary Gibbs measure. As an application, we obtain the attractor property for irreversible interacting particle systems, which says that any weak limit point of any trajectory of translationinvariant measures is a Gibbs measure w.r.t. the same specification as the timestationary measure. This extends previously known results to fairly general irreversible interacting particle systems.

Abstract, PDF (1032 kByte)
Devicetodevice (D2D) communications is one of the key emerging technologies for the fifth generation (5G) networks and beyond. It enables direct communication between mobile users and thereby extends coverage for devices lacking direct access to the cellular infrastructure and hence enhances network capacity. D2D networks are complex, highly dynamic and will be strongly augmented by intelligence for decision making at both the edge and core of the network, which makes them particularly difficult to predict and analyze. Conventionally, D2D systems are evaluated, investigated and analyzed using analytical and probabilistic models (e.g., from stochastic geometry). However, applying classical simulation and analytical tools to such a complex system is often hard to track and inaccurate. In this paper, we present a modeling and simulation framework from the perspective of complexsystems science and exhibit an agentbased model for the simulation of D2D coverage extensions. We also present a theoretical study to benchmark our proposed approach for a basic scenario that is less complicated to model mathematically. Our simulation results show that we are indeed able to predict coverage extensions for multihop scenarios and quantify the effects of streetsystem characteristics and pedestrian mobility on the connection time of devices to the base station (BS). To our knowledge, this is the first study that applies agentbased simulations for coverage extensions in D2D.

Abstract, PDF (1441 kByte)
The interacting quantum Bose gas is a random ensemble of many Brownian bridges (cycles) of various lengths with interactions between any pair of legs of the cycles. It is one of the standard mathematical models in which a proof for the famous BoseEinstein condensation phase transition is sought for. We introduce a simplified version of the model with an organisation of the particles in deterministic boxes instead of Brownian cycles as the marks of a reference Poisson point process (for simplicity, in Z ^{d}, instead of R ^{d}). We derive an explicit and interpretable variational formula in the thermodynamic limit for the limiting free energy of the canonical ensemble for any value of the particle density. This formula features all relevant physical quantities of the model, like the microscopic and the macroscopic particle densities, together with their mutual and selfenergies and their entropies. The proof method comprises a twostep largedeviation approach for marked Poisson point processes and an explicit distinction into small and large marks. In the characteristic formula, each of the microscopic particles and the statistics of the macroscopic part of the configuration are seen explicitly; the latter receives the interpretation of the condensate. The formula enables us to prove a number of properties of the limiting free energy as a function of the particle density, like differentiability and explicit upper and lower bounds, and a qualitative picture below and above the critical threshold (if it is finite). This proves a modified saturation nature of the phase transition. However, we have not yet succeeded in proving the existence of this phase transition.

Abstract
We introduce an agentbased model for coevolving opinion and social dynamics, under the influence of multiplicative noise. In this model, every agent is characterized by a position in a social space and a continuous opinion state variable. Agents? movements are governed by positions and opinions of other agents and similarly, the opinion dynamics is influenced by agents? spatial proximity and their opinion similarity. Using numerical simulations and formal analysis, we study this feedback loop between opinion dynamics and mobility of agents in a social space. We investigate the behavior of this ABM in different regimes and explore the influence of various factors on appearance of emerging phenomena such as group formation and opinion consensus. We study the empirical distribution and in the limit of infinite number of agents we derive a corresponding reduced model given by a partial differential equation (PDE). Finally, using numerical examples we show that a resulting PDE model is a good approximation of the original ABM.

Abstract
We consider a large class of inhomogeneous spatial random graphs on the real line. Each vertex carries an i.i.d. weight and edges are drawn such that short edges and edges to vertices with large weights are preferred. This allows the study of models with longrange effects and heavytailed degree distributions. We introduce a new coefficient, ?eff, measuring the influence of the degreedistribution on the longrange edges. We identify a sharp phase transition in ?eff for the existence of a supercritical percolation phase. In Gracar, Lüchtrath, Mörters 2021, it is shown that the soft Boolean model and the agedependent random connection model are examples for models that have parameter regimes where there is no subcritical percolation phase. This paper completes these results and shows that in dimension one there exist parameter regimes in which the models have no supercritical phase and regimes with both super and a subcritical phases.
