Objectives and Content

The course introduces mathematical theory, agent-based simulation tools, and interactive visualization software to analyze technological networks, particularly the Internet. Topics covered are random graphs, small-world networks, and the preferential attachment model; cellular automata models; computer algorithms to evaluate network properties; and experimental studies of technological networks.

Learning Outcomes

 After completing the course, the students should be able to:

  • Describe and compare different network models,
  • Apply computational tools to analyze properties of real networks,
  • Simulate adaptive processes running on top of large networks
