Title:Towards an Information Theory of Complex Networks [electronic resource] : Statistical Methods and Applications

Note:For over a decade, complex networks have steadily grown as an important tool across abroad array of academic disciplines, with applications ranging from physics to social media.A tightly organizedcollectionofcarefully-selected papers on the subject, Towards an Information Theory of Complex Networks: Statistical Methods and Applications presents theoretical and practical results about information-theoretic and statisticalmodels of complex networks in the natural sciences and humanities.The book'smajor goal is to advocate and promote a combination of graph-theoretic, information-theoretic, and statistical methods as a way to better understand andcharacterize real-world networks. This volume is the first to present a self-contained, comprehensive overvi ew of information-theoretic modelsof complex networks with an emphasis on applications. It begins with four chaptersdeveloping the most significant formal-theoretical issues of network modeling,butthe majority of the book is devoted tocombining theoretica l results with an empirical analysis of real networks. Specific topics include: chemicalgraph theory ecosystem interaction dynamics social ontologies language networks software systems Thiswork marks a first step toward establishing advanced statistical i nformation theory as a unified theoretical basis of complexnetworksfor allscientific disciplines. As such, itcan serve asa valuable resource foradiverse audience of advanced students and professional scientists.It is primarilyintendedas a reference for re search, but couldalso be a useful supplemental graduate text in courses related to information science, graph theory, machine learning, and computational biology, among others
