I became interested in complex networks and their applications largely through working with my student Saray Shai. In getting to grips with complex networks, one has to grapple with the leading edges of both maths and computer science — something that few people (and definitely not me) have the background for. Largely to guide my own study, I started writing notes about the topics I encountered in a form that would serve as a practical introduction to someone wanting to start working in the area, and these notes are now morphing into an open-textbook-cum-blog, Complex networks, complex processes. As the name suggests, the aim of the book is to cover the construction, analysis, and simulation of networks and the processes that run over them, when applied to real-world problems.
Complex networks, complex processes is conceived as a book but is written more like a blog, with relatively small and self-contained chapters linked together. Wither it ever actually turns into a proper book is an open question.
