Computational Network Science: An Algorithmic Approach (Computer Science Reviews and Trends)

By Henry Hexmoor

The rising box of community technological know-how represents a brand new variety of study which can unify such traditionally-diverse fields as sociology, economics, physics, biology, and machine technology. it's a strong software in interpreting either ordinary and man-made structures, utilizing the relationships among avid gamers inside of those networks and among the networks themselves to realize perception into the character of every box. in the past, reviews in community technological know-how were excited by specific relationships that require diversified and sometimes-incompatible datasets, which has stored it from being a very common discipline.

Computational community Science seeks to unify the tools used to investigate those diversified fields. This ebook offers an advent to the sphere of community technological know-how and gives the foundation for a computational, algorithm-based method of community and method research in a brand new and demanding approach. This new strategy might get rid of the necessity for tedious human-based research of alternative datasets and support researchers spend extra time at the qualitative points of community technology research.

  • Demystifies media hype relating to community technology and serves as a fast moving creation to cutting-edge thoughts and structures relating to community science
  • Comprehensive insurance of community technological know-how algorithms, methodologies, and customary problems
  • Includes references to formative and up-to-date advancements within the field
  • Coverage spans mathematical sociology, economics, political technological know-how, and organic networks
