Automated community detection is an important problem in the study of complex networks. The idea of community detection is closely related to the concept of data clustering in pattern recognition. Data clustering refers to the task of grouping similar objects and segregating dissimilar objects. The community detection problem can be thought of as finding groups of densely interconnected nodes with few connections to nodes outside the group. A node similarity measure is proposed here that finds t...

Along with the quick development of e-commerce, different payment schemes are provided to online consumers to improve their shopping experience. Currently, the payment schemes can be divided into two categories, one is pay-to-order, and the other is pay-on-delivery. Payment scheme directly affects consumers’ behavior and e-tailer’s pricing decision in e-commerce. In this paper, we characterize the consumers’ purchase and returns behavior with consumer utility function, build the e-tailer’s profi...

A salient characteristic of the current digital economy is the prevalence of digital products. It may be largely attributed to the rapid growth of digital media which grant users tremendous control over various digital content. However, a number of studies in consumer psychology reported that digital products may lead to reduced perceptions of control as the virtual format inhibits sense of ownership. Noticing this conflict in scholarship, this study examines to what extent consumers’ need for c...

Whether or not online retailers (“e-tailers”) should choose a reselling or agency selling business mode has been well studied by academics. In practice, many major e-tailers, including Amazon and JD.com, are moving toward a combined approach, but not toward the pure agency selling mode. We adopt a game theoretical model to examine the implications of this transition by considering a supplier that distributes its products through a bricks-and-mortar retailer and an e-tailer who has the flexibilit...
