Summer Course: Large-Scale Networks

posted May 13, 2017, 5:48 AM by Dirk Oliver Theis
Data in the form of huge graphs (or networks) has become an important area for algorithm design. Networks with famous algorithmic challenges include the Facebook friend-graph (decide whom to show which ad) or the internet (search).
Between June 27 and July 7, we have invited Babak Farzad to teach a series of lectures on Large-Scale Networks. Covered topics include:
- network analysis (small-world etc)
- stochastic models of network formation (preferential attachment etc)
- strategic models of network formation (based on games, Nash equilibria).
Mark it in your calendar!
