%X With the extension of social networks, research on influence maximization (IM) in time-sensitive graphs has increased in recent years. IM is a problem to find a seed set with k nodes to maximize the information propagation range in the graph. Most of the research in this area consists of greedy, heuristic, meta-heuristic methods. However, most of these methods ignore the time-sensitivity to propagation delay and duration. The preceding time-sensitive centrality measures as a part of heuristic approaches take the propagation delay but only consider the nodes locally so that each graph node considers only the direct neighbors. Based on the above analysis, this article focuses on the time-sensitive IM problem. Here, a propagation value for each path in the graph is defined in terms of the probability of affecting through the edge and freshness amount of the edge. To solve the problem, we propose time-sensitive centrality measures that consider propagation value and both the direct and the indirect neighbors. Therefore, four measures of time-sensitive closeness centrality (TSCloseness), time-sensitive harmonic (TSHarmonic), time-sensitive decay centrality (TSDecay), and time-sensitive eccentricity centrality (TSEccentricity) were proposed. The experiments on five datasets demonstrate the efficiency and influence performance of the TSHarmonic measure on evaluation metrics.
