Sets and indices | |
---|---|
\(i,j\) | Index of source and destination persons \(i,j=1,\dots ,n;\) |
\(t\) | Index of discrete time periods \(t=\mathrm{0,1},\dots ,T;\) |
\(s\) | Index of scenarios \(s=1,\dots ,S;\) |
\({N}_{i}\) | Out-degree of person i (i.e., the persons that \(i\) has their phone number in her contact list); |
\({K}_{i}\) | In-degree of person i (i.e., the persons that have \(i\)’s phone number in their contact list) |
Parameters | ||
---|---|---|
\({a}_{ijs}\) | Binary parameter representing that the message may be forwarded by the person \(i\) to the person \(j\) in scenario \(s;\) | |
\({\pi }_{s}\) | Probability of scenario \(s;\) | |
M | An adequate large number |
