Many complex systems have an underlying network (graph) structure. Here the components of the system become the nodes of the network, while the interactions between components become edges. The topology of this network can give us important insights into the organization of the system, and understanding it is the first step towards understanding the dynamics and function of the complex system.

This research area provides opportunities for undergraduate research.
