The Structure and Function of Complex Networks
by M. E. J. Newman
Publisher: arXiv 2003
Number of pages: 58
Inspired by empirical studies of networked systems such as the Internet, social networks, and biological networks, researchers have in recent years developed a variety of techniques and models to help us understand or predict the behavior of these systems. Here we review developments in this field, including such concepts as the small-world effect, degree distributions, clustering, network correlations, random graph models, models of network growth and preferential attachment, and dynamical processes taking place on networks.

The authors show off a wide range of possibilities in representing the data existing on the Internet. Since so many of these models were created to display never-before-charted territories, the book is largely devoted to analyzing their accuracy.
