Preface: "New trends, models and applications in complex and multiplex networks"

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • The real world surrounding us is full of complex systems from various types and categories. Internet, the World Wide Web, biological and biochemical networks (brain, metabolic, protein and genomic networks), transport networks (underground, train, airline networks, road networks), communication networks (computer servers, Internet, online social networks), and many others (social community networks, electric power grids and water supply networks,...) are a few examples of the many existing kinds and types of networks [1,2,3,4,6,8,9,10,11]. In the recent past years, the study of structure and dynamics of complex networks has been the subject of intense interest. Recent advances in the study of complex networked systems has put the spotlight on the existence of more than one type of links whose interplay can affect the structure and function of those systems [5,7]. In these networks, relevant information may not be captured if the single layers are analyzed separately, since these different components and units interact with others through different channels of connectivity and dependencies. The global characteristics and behavior of these systems depend on multiple dimensions of integration, relationship or cleavage of its units.
