“Complex Networks: a highly interdisciplinary field. Theory and Applications”

Wednesday 18 January 2023 h. 15:30 - Room 2BC30 - Sara Venturini (Padova, Dip. Mat.)


Networks and graph models have become a nearly ubiquitous abstraction and an extremely useful tool to represent a variety of real systems in different fields. They can help us to better understand and analyze different types of interactions and dynamics. Recent researches have shown that real world interactions, in many cases, cannot be fully described by standard graphs. Therefore, there is the need to study more complex structures such as multilayer networks, which enable to take into account different types of information, as well as simplicial complexes and hypergraphs, which consider group interactions.

We will give a brief introduction to modern mathematical and computational tools for complex networks, their applications, and their extension to multilayer and hypergraphs.

In particular, we will focus on the multiplex community detection problem and the application to the science of science.

The video of the seminar will appear shortly afterwards in this Mediaspace channel.
