**Editors**: Eli Ben-Naim, Hans
Frauenfelder, Zoltan Toroczkai

**Publisher**: Springer

**Series**: Lecture Notes in
Physics, volume 650

**Publication date**: September
2004

**About the series**: This
series is particularly devoted
to publications that bridge the gap between the advanced textbook
literature and the forefront of research. This series reports on new
developments quickly and informally but with a high
quality. Manuscripts considered for publication are topical volumes
consisting of a limited number of contributions, carefully
edited. Contributions should be written in a clear, pedagogical style,
and be aimed at a broad readership, especially graduate students and
nonspecialist researchers wishing to familiarize themselves with the
topic concerned. Similar to regular journals, table of contents and
abstracts are available online, with full text available to
subscribers.

**About the volume**: This volume is devoted to the
applications of techniques from statistical physics to the
characterization and modeling of complex networks.The first two parts
of the book concern theory and modeling of networks, the last two
parts survey applications to a wide variety of natural and artificial
networks. The tutorial reviews that form this book are aimed at
students and newcomers to the field, and will also constitute a modern
and comprehensive reference for experts.To this aim, all contributions
have been carefully peer-reviewed not only for scientific content but
also for self-consistency and readability. reference for active
researchers in complex networks.
