Abstract

We outline some recent mathematical and computational
ideas that deal with dynamic patterns of connectivity in
digital communication. Typical examples are email, voice
mail and on-line interactions. This new branch of network
science addresses issues such as: where is the best place and
time to start a rumour, which players have the ability to
exploit the dynamic structure most eectively and how will
the network evolution respond to external stimulus? In a
new experiment we apply dynamic centrality measures to
an email data set involving Enron employees. This reveals
how an individual's ability to communicate across the dy-
namic network correlates with their position in the company
hierarchy.
