APS March meeting Focus Topic: Network Theory - Call for Applications.

last modified Nov 02, 2018 10:46 AM

We are delighted to announce the focus topic on Network Theory that will take place during the 2019 APS March meeting.
The topic is organized by Maksim Kitsak, A.-László Barabási and the Network Science Institute.

03.01.02 Network Theory (GSNP, DBIO) [same as 04.01.42]

The success of Network Science as a discipline is often attributed to two factors. The first fact is the universal language allowing it to represent diverse complex systems, ranging from brain to the Internet, as networks and graphs. The second is a series of recent technological advances allowing for efficient collection and sharing of large amounts of data behind complex systems. The tremendous growth of Network Science would not be sustained, however, without network-theoretic results offering rigorous tools for modeling of both complex systems and dynamics processes taking place on them. This focus session on network theory will feature a wide array of topics including statistical mechanics of networks, graph theory, nonlinear dynamics on and of networks as well as resilience and control. The session will stimulate the discussion between the domain experts studying specific complex systems and theorists working on theoretical and computational aspects of network science.
