Objectives

In this course, we will cover basic mathematical tools to understand and analyze economic and social networks. First, we will see how to represent networks (nodes, edges, paths, cycles, components of a network, degree and network density). Then, we will see how to measure networks (degree distribution, centrality, clustering). On our way, we will touch upon several economic applications.
