Social Networks modelled as Complex Networks

by Amit

Yesterday, I attended a workshop at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur where I interacted with Prof. Niloy Ganguly who is researching various aspects of Complex Networks.

A very interesting aspect of his research is his focus on Social Networks. I asked him- “Why is it not a good practice to model the Social Networks using traditional graph theory?”. According to him, Social Networks, due to the ever evolving, changing dynamic nature are best modeled as Complex Networks.
