Abstract

Many complex networks of systems have structures with similar topological properties: e.g. clustering, small world effect, and scale free structure. The dynamics of a system – either static or dynamic – are effected by the topological structure of the underlying network. Some examples of static and dynamic systems that act on networks include social, epidemiological, and transportation systems. This chapter gives an introduction to the analysis of nonlinear dynamics as it applies to such systems.
