The link stream of contacts in a whole hospital


We analyse a huge and very precise trace of contact data collected by a network of sensors during 6 months on the entire population of a rehabilitation hospital. We investigate both the topological structure of the average daily link stream of contacts in the hospital and the temporal structure of the evolution of these contacts hour by hour. Our main aims are to unveil striking properties of these two structures in the considered hospital, and to present a methodology that can be used for analysing any link stream where nodes are classified into groups.
