Networks: An Introduction by Mark Newman

By Mark Newman

The clinical examine of networks, together with machine networks, social networks, and organic networks, has got an incredible quantity of curiosity within the previous few years. the increase of the net and the large availability of cheap desktops have made it attainable to collect and examine community facts on a wide scale, and the improvement of various new theoretical instruments has allowed us to extract new wisdom from many alternative different types of networks.

The examine of networks is generally interdisciplinary and significant advancements have happened in lots of fields, together with arithmetic, physics, desktop and knowledge sciences, biology, and the social sciences. This e-book brings jointly for the 1st time an important breakthroughs in each one of those fields and provides them in a coherent type, highlighting the powerful interconnections among paintings in several areas.

topics lined contain the size and constitution of networks in lots of branches of technological know-how, equipment for studying community information, together with tools built in physics, information, and sociology, the basics of graph idea, desktop algorithms, and spectral tools, mathematical versions of networks, together with random graph types and generative versions, and theories of dynamical procedures occurring on networks.

The fascinating world of graph theory by Arthur Benjamin

By Arthur Benjamin

The attention-grabbing international of graph conception is going again numerous centuries and revolves round the research of graphs--mathematical constructions exhibiting kin among gadgets. With functions in biology, laptop technology, transportation technology, and different components, graph idea encompasses the most attractive formulation in mathematics--and a few of its most renowned difficulties. for instance, what's the shortest course for a touring salesman looking to stopover at a couple of towns in a single journey? what's the least variety of shades had to fill in any map in order that neighboring areas are constantly coloured in a different way? Requiring readers to have a math historical past merely as much as highschool algebra, this e-book explores the questions and puzzles which have been studied, and sometimes solved, via graph idea. In doing so, the publication seems at graph theory's improvement and the colourful contributors liable for the field's growth.

Introducing graph theory's basic thoughts, the authors discover a various plethora of vintage difficulties similar to the lighting fixtures Out Puzzle, the minimal Spanning Tree challenge, the Königsberg Bridge challenge, the chinese language Postman challenge, a Knight's travel, and the line Coloring challenge. They current all types of graph that you can think of, corresponding to bipartite graphs, Eulerian graphs, the Petersen graph, and timber. each one bankruptcy includes math routines and difficulties for readers to savor.

An eye-opening trip into the area of graphs, this e-book deals interesting problem-solving chances for arithmetic and beyond.

Random Graphs (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its by V. F. Kolchin

By V. F. Kolchin

The booklet is dedicated to the learn of classical combinatorial buildings akin to random graphs, variations, and structures of random linear equations in finite fields. the writer exhibits how the appliance of the generalized scheme of allocation within the examine of random graphs and diversifications reduces the combinatorial difficulties to classical difficulties of chance concept at the summation of self sufficient random variables. He deals fresh study via Russian mathematicians, together with a dialogue of equations containing an unknown permutation, and the 1st English-language presentation of innovations for fixing structures of random linear equations in finite fields. those new effects will curiosity experts in combinatorics and chance conception and also will be beneficial to researchers in utilized components of probabilistic combinatorics similar to verbal exchange conception, cryptology, and mathematical genetics.

The Topos of Music: Geometric Logic of Concepts, Theory, and by Guerino Mazzola (auth.)

By Guerino Mazzola (auth.)

Topos of Music is an intensive and problematic physique of mathematical investigations into tune and comprises numerous and ontologically diverse degrees of musical description. Albeit the writer Guerino Mazzola lists 17 members and a couple of collaborators, the ebook could be characterised as a monograph. huge parts of the content material signify unique learn of Mazzola himself, and the cloth from different paintings is uncovered from Mazzola's viewpoint and is easily referenced. The preface preintimates an meant double which means of the time period topos within the name. at the one hand, it presents a mathematical anchor, that's programmatic for the total method: the idea that of a cartesian closed type with a subobject classifier.

Social Network Analysis Applied to Team Sports Analysis by Filipe Manuel Clemente, Fernando Manuel Lourenço Martins,

By Filipe Manuel Clemente, Fernando Manuel Lourenço Martins, Rui Sousa Mendes

Explaining how graph concept and social community research may be utilized to staff activities research,

This e-book provides helpful ways, types and techniques that may be used to characterise the final homes of group networks and establish the prominence of every staff player.

Exploring the various attainable community metrics that may be utilised in activities research, their attainable purposes and variances from state of affairs to state of affairs, the respective chapters current an array of illustrative case reports. determining the final innovations of social community research and community centrality metrics, readers are proven tips to generate a methodological protocol for info assortment. As such, the publication presents a helpful source for college kids of the game sciences, activities engineering, utilized computation and the social sciences.

Introduction to graph theory by Douglas B. West

By Douglas B. West

This booklet fills a necessity for a radical advent to graph thought that includes either the certainty and writing of proofs approximately graphs. Verification that algorithms paintings is emphasised greater than their complexity. a good use of examples, and large variety of attention-grabbing routines, show the subjects of timber and distance, matchings and components, connectivity and paths, graph coloring, edges and cycles, and planar graphs. if you happen to have to discover ways to make coherent arguments within the fields of arithmetic and machine technological know-how.
