Looking for invariants in the bursty dynamics of interaction networks - human, animal, computer, and brain networks

This is an interdisciplinary project whose goal is establishing whether there exist certain statistical invariants in the bursty dynamics observed in complex network where nodes interact pair-wise or otherwise among themselves. Current results in this direction indicate that such invariants (such as certain universal statistical features exhibited by all the interacting nodes) indeed exist for instance in human dynamics, and specifically in written communication across various different media (paper letters, emails, text messages). We are interested in establishing whether such universality holds also for the inter-event-time distribution of agents, i.e. for the distribution of the pauses in each individual agent's activity, across many different classes of agents (human, animal, computer, brain activity are examples). Another possible type of universality to be investigated regards the existence of Zipf-type distributions in the interaction volumes pertaining to each agent.
