7:00 pm, Willey Hall 125 Lecture

Systems as diverse as the world wide web, Internet or the cell are described by highly interconnected networks with amazingly complex structure. Recent studies indicate that the evolution of these complex networks is governed by simple but generic laws, resulting in apparently universal architectural features. Barabasi will discuss this amazing order characterizing our interconnected world, and its implications to how we perceive the impact on communications and medicine.
