Complex Webs synthesises modern mathematical developments with a broad range of complex network applications of interest to the engineer and system scientist, presenting the common principles, algorithms, and tools governing network behaviour, dynamics, and complexity. The authors investigate multiple mathematical approaches to inverse power laws and expose the myth of normal statistics to describe natural and man-made networks. Richly illustrated throughout with real-world examples including cell phone use, accessing the Internet, failure of power grids, measures of health and disease, distribution of wealth, and many other familiar phenomena from physiology, bioengineering, biophysics, and informational and social networks, this book makes ...

Reviews for Complex Webs: Anticipating the Improbable
'Recent books highlighting different aspects of network science can be roughly separated into popular works that lay out an integrated scientific view of humans and modern technology; manuals and references focused on specific application areas such as biophysics, econophysics, or sociophysics; and texts that explore advanced networks-related topics that go beyond particular disciplines. Complex Webs most closely matches the last ... Read more
