Summary
'Network' is a heavily overloaded term, so that 'network analysis' means different things to different people. Specific forms of network analysis are used in the study of diverse structures such as the Internet, interlocking directorates, transportation systems, epidemic spreading, metabolic pathways, the Web graph, electrical circuits, project plans, and so on. There is, however, a broad methodological foundation which is quickly becoming a prerequisite for researchers and practitioners working with network models. From a computer science perspective, network analysis is applied graph theory. Unlike standard graph theory books, the content of this book is organized according to methods for specific levels of analysis (element, group, network) rather than abstract concepts like paths, matchings, or spanning subgraphs. Its topics therefore range from vertex centrality to graph clustering and the evolution of scale-free networks. In 15 coherent chapters, this monograph-like tutorial book introduces and surveys the concepts and methods that drive network analysis, and is thus the first book to do so from a methodological perspective independent of specific application areas

Note
"The present book is the outcome of a seminar organized by the editors, sponsored by the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI) and held in Dagstuhl, 13-16 April 2004. GI-Dagstuhl-Seminars are organized on current topics in computer science that are not yet well covered in textbooks ... The participants of this seminar were assigned subtopics on which they did half a year of research prior to the meeting. After a week of presentations and discussion at Schloss Dagstuhl, slightly more than another half-year was spent on writing the chapters."--Pref
