Lectures on Complex Networks
S. N. Dorogovtsev, Lectures on Complex Networks, Oxford University Press, February 2010, 144 pages, 93 line illus.
This text is a very concise modern introduction to the science of complex networks. My aim is to introduce a reader without serious background in mathematics or physics to the world of networks. There are already several excellent popular science books and serious reference volumes on complex networks, including books on particular types of networks. The introductory lectures for beginners fill the existing gap between these two kinds of literature. I suggest that the strict selection of material and discussion of recent results and fresh ideas will make this thin book useful even for specialists in networks.
