Networks are ubiquitous in the modern era, be they social media networks such as Facebook, transportation networks formed by aerial or ground routes, political networks observed through blogs and opinions, energy dispatch networks formed between end-users and generators, or meta-networks observed in ‘interdependent’ data such as World Wide Web or biological protein interaction. We know a great deal about these networks, as all things online are recorded, cheap sensors of all sorts are providing a wealth of information about operations, and experiments can be performed at a massive scale. Understanding and utilizing such networks can help tremendously in making better societal decisions regarding public policies, business operations, financial market regulations, and utility network operations.
In this course, we provide an in-depth, state-of-the-art analytic view toward making use of these networks a reality.
