On the Structure of Complex Networks By Daniel Grady

Prints in 3-5 business days
Large-scale complex networks in natural, social, and technological systems exhibit an abundance of rich information, and extracting meaningful structural features from network data is one of the most... More > challenging tasks in network theory. Nonetheless, understanding these networks is essential to explaining phenomena in transportation, epidemiology, sociology, economics, and other fields. This book presents three novel analyses of large-scale empirical networks. First, a comparison of two world-wide transportation systems reveals many statistical similarities despite extremely different operational and geographic constraints. Second, we develop a new method for determining geographic borders based on human mobility. Finally, we demonstrate how measuring networks in terms of shortest-path trees can identify a robust network skeleton, and its relevance in predicting dynamical processes.

This children's book (ages 8-12) is a fictional story about a German Family's journey in the mid 1760's. The story follows their move from their home for the Russian Volga River Colonies,and as their... More > descendants live and prosper on the Volga.It ends about 1900 as their children's children finally leave the Volga and settle in new homes in America. The story line is much the same as in my series of 10 historical novels, but is written from a child’s interests and view. It is true as far as the general dates and facts that we know about the Wolgadeutscher. You may wonder why I wrote this book. Simply, everything today is about ‘sanitized’ facts… just data that does not carry the emotion or feeling, the trial and tribulation, or success and failure in life.I hope this book will help the children see the true story, the real lives of our German-Russian Volga Ancestors… so those that came before, and what they did for us, will live on within us forever.
