Publisher Synopsis

'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 (and smallest) category, as it interweaves various topics from statistical physics to support the understanding of complex networks; perhaps in the future those topics will form the foundation of a network science.' H. Eugene Stanley, Physics Today "Complex Webs is mathematically rigorous, data rich, and entertaining...Complex Webs presents a distinctive perspective that makes it stand out. I strongly recommend this remarkable book to those interested in learning the mathematical underpinnings of the science of networks and, more importantly, to those thinking of teaching a course in it."
