Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Recently, the influence maximization problem for unknown networks has received much attention. The problem aims to identify a small set of influential nodes only from a partial structure of the network obtained by network sampling. To achieve efficient influence propagation on unknown networks, it is necessary to determine the sampling strategy and the number of sample nodes appropriately. We have analytically clarified the relationship between the sample size and the number of activated nodes when random sampling is used as the sampling strategy through theoretical analysis. In this paper, we extend our previous analysis to derive the expected number of activated nodes when breadth-first search, which is a typical crawl-based sampling strategy, is used. Furthermore, we comparatively investigate the effectiveness of random sampling and breadth-first search in influence maximization for unknown networks through several numerical examples. The results show that sampling with breadth-first search requires a smaller sample size to achieve the same number of activated nodes than random sampling.
