Non-Equilibrium Dynamics of Interacting Particle Systems

Dynamics of growing and equilibrium networks

Author: Vespignani, A (Indiana University )

Abstract

The lectures will present an overview of the large-scale topological and dynamical properties of complex networks. First the methodology used to obtain large scale maps of several real networked systems in the social, biological and technology domains will be reviewed. Then the statistical features and regularities observed in the large scale structure of complex networks will be discussed along with the formulation of adequate dynamical models. Finally the effect of network complexity in spreading and percolation processes will be analyzed.
