Higher-Order Interactions

Hypergraphs and simplicial complexes

Do higher-order interactions promote synchronization? Should we use hypergraphs or simplicial complexes when modeling systems with higher-order interactions? Can higher-order interactions affect linear stability and basin stability differently?

Temporal networks

Do temporal networks have a fundamental advantage over static networks? Can time-varying connections be used as a control mechanism?
