Network Dynamics

Course Description

A course summary and objectives may be found here.

For extra reading, resources and information look here.

Detailed notes and extensive source material will be provided (see below for how to get the notes). A range of approaches to network dynamics will be addressed including recent work on Asynchronous Networks and Event Driven Dynamics (engineers viewpoint), mean field theory (physicists approach). As well, the mathematicians approach will be discussed (work in progress).

If you are interested in taking/attending the course: please email me at and I will add you to the mailing list for Lecture notes (Lectures 1 and 2 will be available from October 19). The notes will not be made available for download from this site.
