No current Talk conversations about this book.

Não é a melhor das introduções do tema que tive a oportunidade de ler.
Apesar disso, é um texto curto que introduz o essencial sobre a concepção do mundo organizado em torno do conceito de rede e não de sistema, em 115 páginas.

Algo genérico e baseado nos elementos mais clássicos do tema, não acrescente nem corre grandes riscos. Útil, essencialmente, para uma primeira leitura sobre o tema.

Esta coleção possui alguns títulos interessantes e constitui uma introdução rápida sobre temas, com atualidade e rigor, escritos por especialistas e editados de forma capaz. São livros de bolso, bons para levar em viagem e apenas lamento que o tamanho de letra exija algum esforço para realizar a sua leitura... ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0199588074, Paperback)

Networks are involved in many aspects of everyday life, from food webs in ecology and the spread of pandemics to social networking and public transportation. In fact, some of the most important and familiar natural systems and social phenomena are based on a networked structure. It is impossible to understand the spread of an epidemic, a computer virus, large-scale blackouts, or massive extinctions without taking into account the network structure that underlies all these phenomena. In this Very Short Introduction, Guido Caldarelli and Michele Catanzaro discuss the nature and variety of networks, using everyday examples from society, technology, nature, and history to illuminate the science of network theory. The authors describe the ubiquitous role of networks, reveal how networks self-organize, explain why the rich get richer, and discuss how networks can spontaneously collapse. They conclude by highlighting how the findings of complex network theory have very wide and important applications in genetics, ecology, communications, economics, and sociology.
