About this book

Network Science, Nonlinear Science and Infrastructure Systems has been written by leading scholars in these areas. Its express purpose is to develop common theoretical underpinnings to better solve modern infrastructural problems. It is felt by many who work in these fields that many modern communication problems, ranging from transportation networks to telecommunications, Internet, supply chains, etc., are fundamentally infrastructure problems. Moreover, these infrastructure problems would benefit greatly from a confluence of theoretical and methodological work done with the areas of Network Science, Dynamical Systems and Nonlinear Science. This book is dedicated to the formulation of infrastructural tools that will better solve these types of infrastructural problems.

 

Reviews

From the reviews: “Friesz’s book is the result of a small workshop in 2005 on the relevance of network science and allied disciplines to infrastructure system research and engineering. … The book and its large index will serve its purpose very well, and … it will encourage others to try to do the same in other areas. … It is important that specific communities interact more than previously, and this book … very well be a valuable source of inspiration for continued efforts.” (Michael Patriksson, Journal of Regional Science, Vol. 49 (5), December, 2009)
