  1. 1. Associate professor Jari Saramäki Complex Networks
  2. 2. Complex Networks in a Nutshell XX.XX.XXXX δ= 0 δ= 0.1 δ= 0.5 δ= 1 apply mathematical & computational tools to understand network structure, its evolution, and its effects on dynamical processes on networks We study complex networks from different domains: social networks, the human brain, transport networks, genetic systems… 1. Data on a network is collected 3. Simulations are conducted to understand how network structure affects processes (e.g. information flow) 2. The structure and time evolution of the network are examined; these reveal a lot about the function of the network Examples of research questions: • How do our social networks change in time? Are there features that do not change? Why? • How to design a network (e.g. of public transport) that is very error- tolerant and resilient to problems? Flowchart for a typical study
