Dynamical Processes on Complex Networks

Alain Barrat, Alessandro Vespignani

the provision of enormous information units has allowed researchers to discover complicated houses equivalent to large-scale fluctuations and heterogeneities in lots of networks, resulting in the breakdown of ordinary theoretical frameworks and versions. till lately those platforms have been regarded as haphazard units of issues and connections. fresh advances have generated a energetic study attempt in knowing the impact of advanced connectivity styles on dynamical phenomena. This booklet provides a complete account of those results. an unlimited variety of structures, from the mind to ecosystems, energy grids and the net, may be represented as huge complicated networks. This booklet will curiosity graduate scholars and researchers in lots of disciplines, from physics and statistical mechanics to mathematical biology and knowledge technology. Its modular technique permits readers to effortlessly entry the sections of such a lot curiosity to them, and intricate maths is kept away from so the textual content will be simply by way of non-experts within the topic.
