Abstract
The expected steady-state fraction of active nodes in Watts' model of threshold dynamics on random networks is determined analytically. The analysis applies to random graphs with arbitrary degree distributions, and includes the effect of finite seed fractions. The seed fraction is shown to have a strong impact upon the existence of global cascades and Watts' cascade condition is extended to include these effects.
