On Macrostates in Complex Multi-Scale Systems

A characteristic feature of complex systems is their deep structure, meaning that the definition of their states and observables depends on the level, or the scale, at which the system is considered. This scale dependence is reflected in the distinction … Continue reading

Structural Analysis of Complex Networks

Because of the increasing complexity and growth of real-world networks, their analysis by using classical graph-theoretic methods is oftentimes a difficult procedure. As a result, there is a strong need to combine graph-theoretic methods with mathematical techniques from other scientific … Continue reading

Control of Complex Networks requires both Structure and Dynamics

The study of network structure has uncovered signatures of the organization of complex systems. However, there is also a need to understand how to control them; for example, identifying strategies to revert a diseased cell to a healthy state, or … Continue reading

Heterogeneous Structure in Mixed-species Flocks

Flocks of birds in flight represent a striking example of collective behaviour. Models of self-organization suggest that repeated interactions among individuals following simple rules can generate the complex patterns and coordinated movements exhibited by flocks. However, such models often assume … Continue reading

Community Structure in Large Complex Networks

In this paper, we establish the definition of community fundamentally different from what was commonly accepted in previous studies, where communities were typically assumed to be densely connected internally but sparsely connected to the rest of the network. A community … Continue reading

Complex Networks – Structure and Dynamics

Coupled biological and chemical systems, neural networks, social interacting species, the Internet and the World Wide Web, are only a few examples of systems composed by a large number of highly interconnected dynamical units. The first approach to capture the … Continue reading
