Data Science & Complex Networks

G. Caldarelli, A. Chessa, OUP 2016

This book provides a comprehensive yet short description of the basic concepts of Complex Network theory. In contrast to other books the authors present these concepts through real case studies. The application topics span from Foodwebs, to the Internet, the World Wide Web and the Social Networks, passing through the International Trade Web and Financial time series. The final part is devoted to definition and implementation of the most important network models. 




A Very Short Introduction to Networks

G. Caldarelli, M. Catanzaro  Oxford University Press (2012)

A Very Short Introduction to Networks
From Ecosystems to Facebook, From the Internet to the global financial market, some of the most important and familiar natural systems and social phenomena are based on a networked structure. It is impossible to understand the spread of an epidemic,a computer virus, large-scale blackouts, or massive extinctions without taking into account the network structure that underlies all these phenomena.
