ECT Workshop Spectral Properties of Complex Networks
European Center for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas (ECT*), Trento, Italy
Dates: 23 - 27 July 2012
Modern societies have developed enormous communication and social networks and their classification and information retrieval becomes a formidable task. Various search engines have been developed by private companies which are actively used by Internet users. Due to the recent enormous development of World Wide Web, social and communication networks, new methods have been invented to characterize the properties of these networks on a more detailed and precise level. New characterization of complex networks will allow to manage in an efficient and rapid way information extraction for social networks, communication, bio-cell and other networks. Such type of problems of complex networks and Markov chains appear in various fields of science. The development of interdisciplinary approach to complex networks, which combines expertise from computer science, theoretical physics, mathematics, economy and biology, is the aim of this workshop.
