The scientific study of networks, including computer networks, social networks, and biological networks, has received an enormous amount of interest in the last few years. The rise of the Internet and the wide availability of inexpensive computers have made it possible to gather and analyze network data on a large scale, and the development of a variety of new theoretical ...more

Whenever I hear biologists talking about something mathematical that I don't understand, I get worried. These days it is networks and "network theory". So I decided to read this book--it's great. Now I realize that all the biologists are talking about is a restricted form of graph theory, which is easily mapped (for me at least) into linear algebra. I would feel comfortable handing this to an undergraduate who was not afraid of a little math, as it is well presented and self-contained. Not sure ...more

Newman gives a general discussion about networks. You will see it from the first chap. about how many different real life example you can find about network. So basic mathematics. Great if you want to understand network analytics from a quantitative perspective.
