Hiding Quiet Solutions in Random Constraint Satisfaction Problems
One of the challenges in epidemiology is to account for the complex morphological structure of hosts such as plant roots, crop fields, farms, cells, animal habitats and social networks, when the transmission of infection occurs between contiguous hosts.
Complexity and anisotropy in host morphology make populations safer against epidemic outbreaks
Here the contact structures between nearest-neighbours are determined by overlap of shoots (for aerial pathogens) or roots (for soil-borne pathogens) (Gilligan, 2008) in which the 3-D structure of the plant can be collapsed onto a 2-D framework when considering transmission of infection between nearest-neighbours.
