Hide and Seek on Networks

Navigation is a challenging problem for everyday life. The problem arises because the amount of available information typically is limited and often insufficient. We here abstract this problem to be navigation between a source and a target node on a network. Thus we characterize the relative position of two node sin the network in terms of the minimal information needed to find the shortest path betweem them. Thereby we can discuss and quantify positions in the network in terms of their visibility (hide) respectively how easy they give access to other nodes (seek).
