CSCI 4250 - Frontiers of Network Science

This course will offer an introduction to network science and a review of current research in this area. Classes will interchangeably present chapters from the textbook and related current research. The emphasis will be on the mathematical background of network science: graphs and networks; random networks and various types of scale-free networks; network properties such as assortativity, mobility, robustness, social networks, and communities; and dynamics of spreading in networks. Students cannot receive credit for both CSCI 4250 and CSCI 6250.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: CSCI 2300; a 4000-level algorithms-based CSCI course (e.g., 4020, 4050, 4260, 4800) or MATH course (e.g., 4100, 4150, 4200, 4210, 4800); familiarity with probability, linear algebra, and calculus; or permission of the instructor.

When Offered: Fall term odd-numbered years.
