The Network Science Textbook
by Albert-László Barabási
Network Science, a textbook for network science, is freely available under the Creative Commons licence. Follow its development on Facebook, Twitter or by signining up to our mailing list, so that we can notify you of new chapters and developments.
The book is the result of a collaboration between a number of individuals, shaping everything, from content (Albert-László Barabási), to visualizations and interactive tools (Gabriele Musella,Mauro Martino, Nicole Samay, Kim Albrecht), simulations and data analysis (Márton Pósfai). The printed version of the book will be published by Cambridge University Press in 2015. In the coming months the website will be expanded with an interactive version of the text, datasets, and slides to teach the material.
Notes from the author:
1. To celebrate this moment, each week we start releasing the final chapters, one chapter each week. You will find two chapters already on the site: A personal introduction (Ch0), and a detailed description of how I use the book in my classes (Usage and Acknowledgements), as well as the acknowledgements.
2. In a few months we will also release the slides I used to teach network science, that match the chapters.
3. We will also soon release the guidelines for the community-based translation process.
