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.

The cover shows an upended CND-type emblem with masculine and feminine signs, as though to signify a 'supercross' appropriate, for the author, to Social Transcendentalism, and therefore conceived as the logical successor to the so-called 'true cross' of Roman Catholicism.< Less

More > essentially social beings, because they are dependent on their sociality to survive as a species. As a result, we organize our social relations according to certain preferences and this has consequences for the way we make sense of situations and the social structures we find acceptable in our learning environments. However, this not always aligns with the learning architectures in which we operate. This thesis provides an insight in the way we organize our social relations and how that contributes to an improved ability to provoke learning by aligning these preferences with the learning architectures being afforded.< Less
