There are no discussion topics on this book yet. A good read if you have to understand networks for college without all those mathematical, complicated notations.
I was also concerned about the reliance on neoclassical-style economic ideas and indeed as the book progresses, there is much, much more “model” than “data”.
Aug 25, Peter Aronson rated it really liked it. Over the entworks decade there has been a growing public fascination with the complex connectedness of modern society. The mathematical models used in the course should be accessible to all participants. Fabulous and powerful read. I found Everything is Obvious: I myself had previously thought wrongly that Arrow’s impossibility theorem was a much bigger problem for democratic government than I do now; under the altogether reasonable assumption of single-peaked preferences it does not loom so large in fact, or at least when only one dimension is concerned.

I ctowds always taken an interdisciplinary approach to research and study, and this book makes it ever so clear why marjets areas of study, which are more integrated and cross-disciplinary, are taking place. Jul 07, Cm Lubinski rated it really liked it Shelves: It is very easy to build fairy castles of mathematics that relate poorly, or at all to the real world, particularly once you move away from carefully curated data sets. It is a comprehensive and thorough read to better understand the complexities of increasing “connectedness” in modern living.

Networks, Crowds, and Markets: A Book by David Easley and Jon Kleinberg
Thanks for telling us about the problem. One anr possibly argue that only theoretical statements are not sufficient to state and prove a concept, then I must say that, this book doesnt lags a slight touch of mathematics in it too, with simple use of algebra, combinatorics and most importantly probability. Apr 25, Dani Arribas-bel added it. Crrowds fascinating, especially with the direct references to our connected world internet, e-mail, websites.
Structural Models 1 week Assignment 4 – April 5, Due: Michael Baron rated it it was amazing Mar 29, I highly recommend this book.
That was an awesome and very informative read. But I don’t believe they make enough effort to install caution here. This connectedness is found in many incarnations: If you are beginning to learn in general about social networks, this is the book. In conclusion is a good qualitative book: Not so good, not so bad.
Markets and Information It is also supplied with copious, useful diagrams. If you’re interested in networks, this is the first read for you. I started to read this with an interest of computational study of networksbut later found myself diving into a very powerful stature of concepts and a way of thinking which this book has presented.
Nov 27, Dad rated it it was amazing. Want to Read saving…. Open Preview See a Problem? Assignment 2 – February 16, Cascading Behavior in Networks A solid, not terribly mathematical introduction to networks graph theorygame theory, and markets.
There will be a final exam. Though at times, I was more interested in the statements and verbal proves than the mathematical parts because of ahd my laziness to give time and understand the equations, or sometimes, that they were bit tough to digest on a single read. No trivia or quizzes yet.

kleibnerg The Structure of the Web We live in a connected world in which information spreads virtually instantaneously, and the Internet and the Web support new economic mechanisms and organizational structures and the operation of vast social and financial networks. A complete pre-publication draft of the text is available at http: This book is an excellent overview of current network theory, regardless of your familiarity with the field.
