Network Complexity - The Wiki
From Network Complexity
(Redirected from Main Page)
- "Complex systems are built out of a myriad of simple components which interact, and exhibit behaviour that is not a simple consequence of pairwise interactions, but rather, emerges from the combination of interactions at some scale."

The Collaboration Space - The Goal of this Wiki
The goal of this wiki is to address the following questions:
- Definition: What is "network complexity"? (establish a taxonomy)
- Questions: Which questions are we trying to solve?
- Metrics: How can you measure it?
- Examples: Have we observed evidence of "complexity" in real networks / the Internet?
- Control: How can you contain / control complexity?
