Symmetry-based coarse-graining of evolved dynamical networks
Received: 26 February 2015
Accepted: 23 July 2015
Networks with a prescribed power-law scaling in the spectrum of the graph Laplacian can be generated by evolutionary optimization. The Laplacian spectrum encodes the dynamical behavior of many important processes. Here, the networks are evolved to exhibit subdiffusive dynamics. Under the additional constraint of degree-regularity, the evolved networks display an abundance of symmetric motifs arranged into loops and long linear segments. Exploiting results from algebraic graph theory on symmetric networks, we find the underlying backbone structures and how they contribute to the spectrum. The resulting coarse-grained networks provide an intuitive view of how the anomalous diffusive properties can be realized in the evolved structures.
