Applications of Networks to Real-World Problems

urban_street-network-forSliderWe are interested in the applications of network theory to solve problems in a variety of real-world scenarios. These applications currently include: biomolecular networks, such as protein-protein interaction and metabolic networks; infrastructural networks, such as urban street and airline transportation networks; ecological systems, such as food webs and landscape networks; fracture networks in rocks and the diffusion of oil and gas on them; social networks and the influence of direct and indirect peer pressure on the diffusion of information; networks that change in time, such as telecommunication networks; deployment of wireless sensor networks in geographical areas; etc.
