Signal diffusion

How can I analyse signal diffusion from a shock to one node to other nodes in the network using Node XL?

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

We do not have any features that explicitly support this use case.

Can you describe the behavior you would like in greater detail?

thank you very much for your prompt response. I am an international economist and trying to model spillovers of crises from one country to others. My shock is to the node (decline of GDP of a country), which should propagate through the network of its links (trade, finance, migrations etc) to other countries with a certain impact of their GDP. I am looking for a network model and software that could help calculate the impact and visualize it.

I would appreciate any tips you may have on where to look.

Many thanks


P.S. NodeXL was very helfull in visualizing the existing links,
