Spreading of Innovations on Networks
Abstract. Spreading (diffusion) of new products is a classical problem. Traditionally, it has been analyzed using the compartmental Bass model, which implicitly assumes that all individuals are homogeneous and connected to each other. To relax these assumptions, research has gradually shifted to the more fundamental Bass model on networks, which is a particle model for the stochastic adoption by each individual.
