The Specimen Exam is Posted.

Read the title.

Note, obviously, that the specimen exam has not been vetted the way real exams are.

Solution Set 4 is Posted

I have now posted solution set 4.

Now I'll get started on writing an informal specimen exam so you can get a better idea of what "bite-sized" questions might look like. (This is much less for the purpose of providing review material, as there is already plenty of that, and more just to get a more concrete idea of what an exam question --- as opposed to homework question --- might look like.) I don't yet know exactly when I'll have this ready. Also, I won't be writing up formal solutions for it the way I have done with the homework assignments.

Update (4/28/14): I have made a couple corrections and clarified some points on solution sheet 4 (especially on sheet 4) and have posted a revised version.

Solution Set 3 is Posted

I have just posted the solutions for homework sheet 3. I meant to do this on Friday of week 8 and simply forgot. Sorry about that!

(Hat tip to the student who e-mail me today, which has made me realize that I forgot. I wish somebody had pointed this out to me earlier...)

New Article: "Dynamical Systems on Networks: A Tutorial"

I have now posted my article, Dynamical Systems on Networks: A Tutorial, which I previously circulated in incomplete form and which I followed in large part for the lecture notes on dynamical systems on networks.

Note that this is supplemental material for the lectures, but I think you'll find it helpful. You don't have to read it.

Week 2: Mon, Tues: 2 - 4 pm (room C2)

Week 3: Mon, Tues: 2 - 4 pm (room C2)

Week 5: Mon, Tues: 2 - 4 pm (room C2)

Slides Posted from Two of My Seminars

Once we get through the handwritten notes for Chapter 7 (which concerns "Dynamical Systems on Networks"), I'll plan on going through some slides from one of my talks on cascades and social influence on networks. I have now posted these slides among the course materials. I doubt I'll have time to go through all of them, but reading them should help cement your big-picture understanding about dynamical systems on networks (and it will help for some of the methodology as well).

I have also posted slides from one of my talks on multilayer community structure and functional brain networks. One person asked that I talk about networks from neuroscience in lecture. I don't think that I will get to this at all in lecture --- as I think the discussion of social influence on networks will be particularly helpful for Chapter 7 --- but it will provide that person with some thoughts on that topic and it will help cement your big-picture knowledge of Chapter 6 (so reading these slides is very much worthwhile, in my opinion). It also presents my view on multilayer networks --- which I hope will become the dominant view of the subject, given that I have written an ambitious review article that is trying to drive the entire field forward --- so it will be very helpful for that topic if you're interested in it.

Full Notes for Chapter 7 Now Available

I have now posted the full notes for Chapter 7. There are only a couple more pages besides what I already posted.

Lecture Notes Posted for Chapter 7 (Partial)

I have posted the first 19 and change (a bit onto p. 20) pages of lecture notes for Chapter 7, which concerns dynamical systems on networks and which we will take all of week 7 and a large chunk (and maybe even all) of week 8 to cover. The material posted gets into some of what will be in week 8, so I remain on schedule as concerns posting notes.

Lecture Notes Posted for Chapter 4

I have posted lecture notes for Chapter 4.

Clarifications of some Questions in Homework 1

I have posted a revised document for homework 1 in which some questions are phrased somewhat more clearly and precisely. In case you felt that something was too ambiguous, you should look again.

Resources Added to "Useful Out-Edges"

I have added out-edges (aka, "hyperlinks" or "links" in everyday language) to the sidebar. This includes an out-edge to the course material (most of which has not yet been posted) and to several review and survey articles on various topics as well as on networks as a whole. I hope that you find these resources useful!

Lecture Notes Posted for Chapters 0 and 1

I have posted the lecture notes for Chapters 0 and 1 in the Course Material page.
