Editorial Reviews


"...a good point of reference or entry-level introduction to complex networks ... definitely an interesting read."
Journal of Statistical Physics

Book Description

Using a statistical physics approach the internet is viewed as a growing system that evolves in time through the addition and removal of nodes and links. This perspective permits us to outline the dynamical theory required for a description of the macroscopic evolution of the internet. The presence of such a theoretical framework appears to be a revolutionary and promising path towards our understanding of the internet and the various processes taking place on this network.

Format: Paperback
This book will give a new sight for the reader. To investigate networks, it is a brand new way to understand many fields: www, biological and social nets. This book combines physics and network research - that is great in it.
