Spreading processes have been largely studied in the literature, both analytically and by means of large-scale numerical simulations. “Fundamentals of spreading processes in single and multilayer complex networks” is a new scientific paper, out in Physics Reports, that offers a whole suite of methods to study epidemic-like processes in complex networks, both for researchers without previous experience in the subject and for experts.

In the last decades, high-impact science has been increasingly achieved through the combination of ideas coming from different disciplines. Nevertheless the most prestigious award in science, the Nobel Prize, is still awarding few individual categories (physics, chemistry, phisiology or medicine), favouring papers that generate very little interest outside of their awarded field.

Recent advances in data collection have facilitated the access to human proximity data that can conveniently be represented as temporal networks of contacts between individuals. While the structural and dynamical information revealed by this type of data is fundamental to investigate how information or diseases propagate in a population, data often suffer from incompleteness, which possibly leads to biased estimations in data-driven models.
