Linked : the new science of networks by Albert-László Barabási( Book )

18 editions published in 2002 in English and Finnish and held by 1,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We've long suspected that we live in a small world, where everything is connected to everything else. Indeed, networks are pervasive--from the human brain to the Internet to the economy to our group of friends. These linkages, it turns out, aren't random. All networks, to the great surprise of scientists, have an underlying order and follow simple laws. Understanding the structure and behavior of these networks will help us do some amazing things, from designing the optimal organization of a firm to stopping a disease outbreak before it spreads catastrophically. In Linked, Barabási, a physicist whose work has revolutionized the study of networks, traces the development of this rapidly unfolding science and introduces us to the scientists carrying out this pioneering work. These "new cartographers" are mapping networks in a wide range of scientific disciplines, proving that social networks, corporations, and cells are more similar than they are different, and providing important new insights into the interconnected world around us. This knowledge, says Barabási, can shed light on the robustness of the Internet, the spread of fads and viruses, even the future of democracy
Bursts : the hidden pattern behind everything we do by Albert-László Barabási( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Italian and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Outlines a theory of how to predict behavior, drawing on seven years of research while demonstrating the mathematical properties of seemingly random events, from the spread of epidemics to the history of wars
Linked : how everything is connected to everything else and what it means for business, science, and everyday life by Albert-László Barabási( Book )

23 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and German and held by 749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Albert-Laszlo Barabasi, the nation's foremost expert in the new science of networks, takes us on an intellectual adventure to prove that social networks, corporations, and living organisms are more similar than previously thought. A full understanding of network science will someday enhance our ability to design blue-chip businesses, stop the outbreak of deadly diseases, and influence the exchange of ideas and information. Engaging and authoritative, Linked provides an exciting glimpse into the next century of science and an urgent new perspective on our interconnected world. Book jacket."--Jacket
Fractal concepts in surface growth by Albert-László Barabási( Book )

23 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together two of the most exciting and widely studied subjects in modern physics: namely fractals and surfaces. To the community interested in the study of surfaces and interfaces, it brings the concept of fractals. To the community interested in the exciting field of fractals and their application, it demonstrates how these concepts may be used in the study of surfaces. The authors cover, in simple terms, the various methods and theories developed over the past ten years to study surface growth. They describe how one can use fractal concepts successfully to describe and predict the morphology resulting from various growth processes. Consequently, this book will appeal to physicists working in condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics, with an interest in fractals and their application. The first chapter of this important new text is available on the Cambridge Worldwide Web server: http://www.cup.cam.ac.uk/onlinepubs/Textbooks/textbookstop.html
The structure and dynamics of networks by M. E. J Newman( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the Internet to networks of friendship, disease transmission, and even terrorism, the concept--and the reality--of networks has come to pervade modern society. But what exactly is a network? What different types of networks are there? Why are they interesting, and what can they tell us? In recent years, scientists from a range of fields--including mathematics, physics, computer science, sociology, and biology--have been pursuing these questions and building a new "science of networks." This book brings together for the first time a set of seminal articles representing research from across these disciplines. It is an ideal sourcebook for the key research in this fast-growing field. The book is organized into four sections, each preceded by an editors' introduction summarizing its contents and general theme. The first section sets the stage by discussing some of the historical antecedents of contemporary research in the area. From there the book moves to the empirical side of the science of networks before turning to the foundational modeling ideas that have been the focus of much subsequent activity. The book closes by taking the reader to the cutting edge of network science--the relationship between network structure and system dynamics. From network robustness to the spread of disease, this section offers a potpourri of topics on this rapidly expanding frontier of the new science."--Book cover
Network science by Albert-László Barabási( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Networks are everywhere, from the Internet, to social networks, and the genetic networks that determine our biological existence. Illustrated throughout in full colour, this pioneering textbook, spanning a wide range of topics from physics to computer science, engineering, economics and the social sciences, introduces network science to an interdisciplinary audience. From the origins of the six degrees of separation to explaining why networks are robust to random failures, the author explores how viruses like Ebola and H1N1 spread, and why it is that our friends have more friends than we do. Using numerous real-world examples, this innovatively designed text includes clear delineation between undergraduate and graduate level material"--Page 4 of cover

Network medicine : complex systems in human disease and therapeutics( Book )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Network medicine, a new field which developed from the application of systems biology approaches to human disease, embraces the complexity of multifactorial influences on disease, which can be driven by non-linear effects and molecular and statistical interactions.The development of comprehensive and affordable Omics platforms provides the data types for network medicine, and graph theory and statistical physics provide the theoretical framework to analyze networks. While network medicine provides a fundamentally different approach to understanding disease etiology, it will also lead to key differences in how diseases are treated--with multiple molecular targets that may require manipulation in a coordinated, dynamic fashion. Much remains to be learned regarding the optimal approaches to integrate different Omics data types and to perform network analyses; this book provides an overview of the progress that has been made and the challenges that remain."--

Linked : The New Science Of Networks Science Of Networks by Albert-László Barabási( Book )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1980's, James Gleick's Chaos introduced the world to complexity. Now, Albert-L?szl? Barab?si's Linked reveals the next major scientific leap: the study of networks. We've long suspected that we live in a small world, where everything is connected to everything else. Indeed, networks are pervasive--from the human brain to the Internet to the economy to our group of friends. These linkages, it turns out, aren't random. All networks, to the great surprise of scientists, have an underlying order and follow simple laws. Understanding the structure and behavior of these networks will help us do some amazing things, from designing the optimal organization of a firm to stopping a disease outbreak before it spreads catastrophically. In Linked, Barab?si, a physicist whose work has revolutionized the study of networks, traces the development of this rapidly unfolding science and introduces us to the scientists carrying out this pioneering work. These "new cartographers" are mapping networks in a wide range of scientific disciplines, proving that social networks, corporations, and cells are more similar than they are different, and providing important new insights into the interconnected world around us. This knowledge, says Barab?si, can shed light on the robustness of the Internet, the spread of fads and viruses, even the future of democracy. Engaging and authoritative, Linked provides an exciting preview of the next century in science, guaranteed to be transformed by these amazing discoveries. From Linked:This book has a simple message: think networks. It is about how networks emerge, what they look like, and how they evolve. It aims to develop a web-based view of nature, society, and technology, providing a unified framework to better understand issues ranging from the vulnerability of the Internet to the spread of diseases. Networks are present everywhere. All we need is an eye for them ... We will see the challenges doctors face when they attempt to cure a disease by focusing on a single molecule or gene, disregarding the complex interconnected nature of the living matter. We will see that hackers are not alone in attacking networks: we all play Goliath, firing shots at a fragile ecological network that, without further support, could soon replicate our worst nightmares by turning us into an isolated group of species ... Linked is meant to be an eye-opening trip that challenges you to walk across disciplines by stepping out of the box of reductionism. It is an invitation to explore link by link the next scientific revolution: the new science of networks
