Présentation de l'éditeur

From ecosystems to Facebook, from the Internet to the global financial market, some of the most important and familiar natural systems and social phenomena are based on a networked structure. It is impossible to understand the spread of an epidemic, a computer virus, large-scale blackouts, or massive extinctions without taking into account the network structure that underlies all these phenomena.

In this Very Short Introduction, Guido Caldarelli and Michele Catanzaro discuss the nature and variety of networks, using everyday examples from society, technology, nature, and history to explain and understand the science of network theory. They show the ubiquitous role of networks; how networks self-organize; why the rich get richer; and how networks can spontaneously collapse. They conclude by highlighting how the findings of complex network theory have very wide and important
applications in genetics, ecology, communications, economics, and sociology.

ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well-written Introduction to Networks 8 février 2013
Format:Broché
The rise of Internet has put the idea of networks in the forefront of public consciousness, which has only been accentuated with the arrival of (online) social networks. However, explicit or implicit networks are a very salient part of our lives and have been so for quite some time: roads and railroads, kinship networks, commercial networks, are all just some of the examples of networks that we come across all the time. And then there are predator-pray networks, protein interaction networks, and a myriad other examples of networking phenomena. Once you adapt the network paradigm as a guiding principle of organizing the world you start seeing networks everywhere.

This is a very short introduction to networks which covers both the concrete examples of networks as well as the their theoretical description. There are many interesting historical vignettes in it, and quite a few conceptual insights. It is a very well written and resourced book. It has all the qualities that one has come to associate with these short introductions – written by an expert in the field, and yet accessible to a wide range of readers. I would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in networks of any sort.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a stimulating introduction, with diverse insights from the inane to the profound 4 décembre 2012
Par Nigel Kirk - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
A quick scan of this VSI indicated that it contained a single equation (p=1/2 for a coin toss), reasonable considering the limited depths of explanation possible in this format, but nevertheless indicative of the depth that this introduction to networks attempts. In fairness, it makes good use of graphs. At the time of this review, Wikipedia indicated that 'network' may refer to any of 13 non-proper noun subtopics, any of which may fall within the ambit of this VSI so, again, it can only offer a reader a sense of the extreme breadth and complexity of the networks topic.

My interest was piqued early by the social network representation of a central Australian aboriginal group. No reference or researcher names were given and my own web search suggests that the tribe name must have been spelled Aranda, Arrernte or Arunta but certainly not Arunda as in the book. While this eroded my confidence in the accuracy of this VSI edition, most other areas of discussion identified researchers and the limited bibliography, again excusable up to a point in a VSI book, was of less concern.

The VSI is structured around the topography, trends, dynamics, classification, uses and numerous other features of networks. In each case myriad examples are offered from ecology, neurology, various associations of words and people, the internet, the `six degrees of separation' theory, and many more. There is more emphasis on social networks and the examples and observations range from the inane to the common sense to the profound. The exposition is fresh and engaging. One interesting topic on network structure dealt with how scientific profile and success is a product of network structure (I was interested in how this worked for scientific paper citation) and this topic provided an excellent foundation for further reading and thinking through the issue, as I believe it does for many other networks topics.

In keeping with the book's focus on the features of networks, it provides a useful review in its final chapter, "All the World's a Net; or Not?". Accompanied with the fine range of examples, this is a useful and engaging introduction to the diverse subject of networks.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Covers all the main aspects of networks 25 janvier 2013

The book structure overlaps with the one proposed in most good technical books.
This is quite good because it makes the presentation a very good introduction to more advanced resources.
