Research Question

How to inflict the highest damage (appropriately measured) to a dark network by selectively removing its nodes?

Project Description

Value chain or workflow concepts are widely used in various domains. They are well known in production systems or scientific collaborations. Stochastic workflows (an example is Wikipedia editing) play a central role in the understanding and analysis of complex production processes. The related concept of graph coloring (i.e. assigning colors to nodes representing different roles) appears from ecology (e.g. trophic chains) to inquiry scheduling. Our proposal endeavours to generalize these notions to criminal networks. Workflows or value chains over criminal (dark) networks have striking peculiarities arising from the topological arrangement of the network and we plan to map and understand these and to characterize these workflows (value chains) from the point of view of information transmission and control.
