About this book


The volume, devoted to recent contributions to the field of networks modelling, offers a wide panorama of recent advances, both theoretical and methodological, that will interest academics as well as practitioners.

Theory and applications are nicely integrated: theoretical papers are in graph theory, game theory, coalitions, dynamics, consumer behaviour, segregation models and new contributions to the area are offered. The applications cover a wide range: airline transportation, financial markets, work team organization, labour and credit market.

The volume can be used as a reference book for graduate and postgraduate courses on network theory and complex systems in faculties of economics, mathematics, engineering or social sciences.
