Network theory (or diktyology) models systems as networks or graphs and analysis their statistical and topological properties. Along with graph theory, network theory arose as a branch of applied mathematics. It is applied across a wide range of disciplines including computer science, biology, physics, sociology, economics and others.
VLab presents several models that demonstrate how very different complex systems can be effectively modelled as networks.
