Dynamics of Real-world Networks

Dynamics of Real-world Networks

This video was recorded at Dynamics of real-world networks. In our recent work we found interesting and unintuitive patterns for time evolving networks, which change some of the basic assumptions that were made in the past. The main objective of observing the evolution patterns is to develop models that explain processes which govern the network evolution. Such models can then be fitted to real networks, and used to generate realistic graphs or give formal explanations about their properties. In addition, our work has a wide range of applications: we can spot anomalous graphs and outliers, design better graph sampling algorithms, forecast future graph structure and run simulations of network evolution. Another important aspect of this research is the study of "local" patterns and structures... Show More
