Readership: Undergraduate and graduate students in physics, applied mathematics, and computer science. Teachers and researchers in the science of networks, physics, applied mathematics, and computer science.
Sergey Dorogovtsev, Department of Physics, University of Aveiro, Portugal, and the Ioffe Institute, St Petersburg
"Dorogovtsev is one of the top researchers in probably the hottest new research field today: networks science. He is responsible for a number of fundamental results pertaining to the structure and dynamics of scale-free networks. In this book we see a different aspect of him: as an educator, he offers a concise introduction to complex networks. Lectures on Complex Networks is a wonderful elementary yet non-compromising starting point for anybody who would like to get acquainted with the science of networks." - Albert-Laszlo Barabasi, Center for Complex Network Research, Northeastern University, US
"An introduction likely to be of interest to serious students at an undergraduate level or above who are interested in the recent work on understanding complex networks.
" - Nigel Gilbert, University of Surrey, UK
"Complex networks are an important topic and this book will fill a space in the market between the popular science books and the technical reference works on the topic.
