Description
Network science is a thriving and increasingly important cross-disciplinary domain that focuses on the representation, analysis, and modeling of complex social, biological and technological systems as networks or graphs. Modern data sets can often be represented by some kind of network. Networks can be temporal, with edges and nodes appearing, disappearing and changing their characteristics over time. Nodes can have locations, directions, memory, demographic characteristics, content, and preferences. Edges can have lengths, directions, capacities, costs, durations, and types. You will learn how to model and understand networks and their rich data using the mathematics of networks and the computational tools for identifying and explaining the patterns they contain. You will also learn about the wide range of applications of network science and some of the insights this field has allowed us to gain.
