Network Science / Complex networks

In the last ten years, the study of complex networks has received an important boost with large interdisciplinary efforts aimed at their analysis and characterisation. Two main points explain this large activity: on the one hand, many systems coming from very different disciplines (from biology to computer science) have a convenient representation in terms of graphs; on the other hand, the ever-increasing availability of large data sets and computer power have allowed their storage and manipulation. Many maps have emerged, describing many networks of practical interest in social science, critical infrastructures, networking, and biology. The DANTE project targets the study of dynamically evolving networks, from the point both of their structure and of the dynamics of processes taking place on them.
