  • Provides the latest advances in computational social networks, and illustrates how organizations can gain a competitive advantage by applying these ideas in real-world scenarios
  • Presents a specific focus on practical tools and applications
  • Provides experience reports, survey articles, and intelligence techniques and theories relating to specific problems in network technology

The study of computational social networks (CSNs) is an emerging interdisciplinary field, concerned with the intersection of social behavior and computer systems.

This comprehensive text/reference is the first of three volumes that illustrate the concept of social networks from a computational point of view. The book contains contributions from a international selection of world-class experts, with a specific focus on practical tools, applications, and open avenues for further research (the other two volumes review issues of Security and Privacy, and Mining and Visualization in CSNs).

Topics and features:

  • Includes a thorough introduction to this exciting and blossoming field
  • Presents the latest advances in CSNs, and illustrates how organizations can gain a competitive advantage by applying these ideas in real-world scenarios
  • Discusses the design and use of a wide range of computational tools and software for social network analysis
  • Describes simulations of social networks, the representation and analysis of social networks, and the use of semantic networks in knowledge discovery and visualization
  • Provides experience reports, survey articles, and intelligence techniques and theories relating to specific problems in network technology

This authoritative work is a useful resource for researchers and developers involved in social network research and related issues. Postgraduate and senior undergraduate students will also find this a valuable reference for courses on CSNs.
