Fundamentals of complex networks: From static towards evolving

Mini-WORKshop, March 6-8, 2019


The main topic of the mini-WORKshop are fundamentals of the mathematical theory of networks, i.e., characterization of their structure (sparse vs. dense, heavy-tailed degree distributions, stochastic symmetries, scaling limits), with a focus on general theory, but also through discussion of key models used in the modeling of real world networks and their deficiencies. The aim of the workshop is to identify the relevant new directions for advancing the existing theory of stochastic processes on networks to cover the case of evolving networks, for which a mathematical theory is still largely lacking.
