0059 (Types of Flow)
Workers (flowing among jobs)
Help/favors/acts of kindness
Categorize these in terms of four characteristics:
- The mechanics of diffusion: does diffusion occur via replication (copy mechanism) or transfer (move mechanism)?
- (applicable only to replication-based flows) Is the duplication is one at a time (serial), like giving a paperback to a friend, or simultaneous (parallel), like a radio broadcast.
- Does the traffic flow deliberately or blindly/randomly?
- Does the traffic revisit places it's already been? That is, is the flow on paths (no node repeats), trails (no edge repeats), or walks (visiting nodes and edges perhaps repeatedly).
