Project Description

From financial markets to the world-wide web, modern society is dominated by vast, complex networks of many kinds. Understanding how resilient network structures arise and remain stable is crucial in trying to avoid catastrophic failures and other major problems. This project investigates ways in which complex networks evolve, especially the roles played by alternating dual phases (local and global interactions), motifs as stable cores, and the emergence of modular structure. The results will provide insights about change in networks associated with organization and infrastructure, as well as novel methods and principles for optimal design and management of complex networks.
