The purpose of information source detection problem (or called rumor source detection) is to identify the source of information diffusion in networks based on available observations like the states of the nodes and the timestamps at which nodes adopted the information (or called infected). The solution of the problem can be used to answer a wide range of important questions in epidemiology, computer network security, etc. This dissertation studies the fundamental theory and the design of efficient and robust algorithms for the information source detection problem.
