    The last decade has seen an explosion of research in network science, a science whose initial work and subsequent developments are grounded in statistical physics applied to natural systems. In recent years researchers in the engineering discipline have also taken a keen interest in complex networks which has resulted in several application areas being investigated in engineering. In this paper, w... View full abstract»

    The intrinsic dynamics of a dynamical system, for most of them structured as a dynamical network, is used to process information. We believe that this is more "brain-like" than conventional information processing algorithms, where the problems are decomposed down to the elementary logic level by several layers of sophisticated software. Of course, in the end the conventional algorithms may also be... View full abstract»

    Channel coding provides error-correction capability at the receiving end by adding redundant information (bits) to every block of data in the transmission. In this article, we describe how some results from complex networks can be applied to channel coding for communications. In particular, we explain how the average-path-length characteristic of complex networks can be used to help design low-den... View full abstract»

    The discovery of power-laws and spectral properties of the Internet topology illustrates a complex underlying network infrastructure that carries a variety of the Internet applications. Analysis of spectral properties of the Internet topology is based on matrices of graphs capturing Internet structure on the Autonomous System (AS) level. The analysis of data collected from the Route Views and RIPE... View full abstract»

    The old adage of “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” is prevalent in sociology, zoology, philosophy and in discussion about human relationships, but it is also important in technology. In a sense, engineering is all about creating things that are greater than the sum of their parts by utilizing many simple components. For instance, in mechanics complex machines are built...

    Complex networked systems abound in Nature and Technology. They consist of a multitude of interacting agents communicating with each other over a web of complex interconnections. Flocks of birds, platoon of cooperating robots, swirling fishes in the Ocean are all examples whose intricate dynamics can be modeled in terms of three essential ingredients: (i) a mathematical description of the dynamica...

    One of the main purposes for the study of complex network topology and modeling is to understand the influence of network structure on its function and consequently to find effective ways to improve network performance. This paper surveys some recent advances in pinning control approaches to making a dynamical network have a desired behavior. For a network with fixed topology, we review the feasib...
