ABSTRACT
This paper will try to demonstrate that the Romanian blogosphere is a social fractal, a network that scales up and down with equal facility. We will create a network of blogs linked by influence using notions like memes, Internet memes, meme-tracker, and the Yale approach to influence. Fractal geometry provides an effective way to describe the complex property of a 2D map. This paper uses a box-counting method to describe the fractal property of the Romanian Blogosphere.

    This short paper advances and defends a strong statement concerning financial modeling. It argues that, even when the present fractal models become superseded, fractal tools are bound to remain central to finance. The reasons are that the main feature of price records is roughness and that the...

    The understanding of the dynamic behavior of the voter model, in low-dimensional media, is a very interesting open topic. In fact, due to the absence of the interfacial tension, only the interfacial noise becomes relevant during the coarsening processes, bringing the possibility of studing a new...
