Networks, Crowds, and Markets Instructors: Keeping in a note about the slightly complex nature of the mathematical equations, which always could be skipped without facing any loss of the concepts delivered, one easleu definitely give a read to understand the basic working of any form of network existing between people and mechanisms to how to get things done using it!
The book is a good book to take an overview about networks, Crowds and other things that you can read in the title of the book. Mar 24, Zach Boyle rated it it was amazing. Fabulous and powerful read. A good read if you have to understand networks for college without all those mathematical, complicated notations.
Say it, a easleg book, a psychology book, a data analysis book, it fits em all very beautifully. Return to Book Page. The ideas about probability were the best and ties several concepts normally separate together. Hardcoverpages. I would suggest it to anyone interested in economics, philosophy, the social sciences, or anyone who programs.

Link Analysis and Web Search However, if you are looking for a quantitative book then this book is not for you. No trivia or quizzes yet. That was an awesome and very informative read.
One could possibly argue that only theoretical statements are not sufficient to state and prove a concept, then I must say that, this book doesnt lags a slight touch of mathematics in it too, with simple use of algebra, combinatorics and most importantly probability.
In conclusion is a good qualitative book: Networks in Their Surrounding Contexts 5. Excellent book, with easily understandable introductions in the first third, college-course content in the middle third, and fascinating implications in the final third. If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. Assignments Assignment 4 – April 5, Due: Westbut there was surprising little overlap. Structural Models 1 week This connectedness is found in many incarnations: The implications raised in the first few chapters should be enough to convince any rational person of the incredible power of network and graph theory, and how it can make the world a better or worse place.
Networks are prima facie a more realistic setting for a lot of economic activity than the nebulous void of earlier models but this is not an advantage if no attempt to test those models is made The writing style is very good, for the most part.

I started to read this with an interest of computational study of networksbut later found myself diving into a very powerful stature of concepts and a way of thinking which this book has presented. Karp and Christos H.

Open Preview See a Problem? Jan 26, Abhinav Kashyap klelnberg it it was amazing. It is a good intro for interdisciplinary social science undergrads to get a first introduction to graphs and how they can help understanding the world, but in my case I think I would have appreciated a higher density of concepts per line.
Assignment 1 – February 2, Networks are prima facie a more realistic setting for a lot of economic activity than the nebulous void of earlier models but this is not an advantage if no attempt to test those models is made.
