Networks and Complexity in Social Systems (Duncan Watts)

The primary aim of this course is to describe a unified theoretical framework for addressing network dynamics problems in the social sciences. A successful approach to this subject must necessarily be highly interdisciplinary, drawing upon techniques that are well established in physics, applied mathematics and computer science, but applied to the problems of sociology and economics.
