Abstract

Complex network such as scale-free networks and small-world networks have been studied with the dynamics when the information percolates through the networks. This chapter reports the problem of spreading the normal state (rather than spreading of the abnormal state) that is formalized as cleaning a contaminated network by mutual copying. Repairing by copying is the “double edged sword” that could spread contamination when properly used. A framework for controlling copying involving a spatial Prisoner’s Dilemma is introduced. Adaptive character to the network environment has been observed.
