What is ... a random walk on a network?

This page hosts information on Natasa Djurdjevac's talk "What is ... a random walk on a network?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk will take place on Friday, January 21, 4:30pm at the BMS Lounge in TU, MA 212.

After the seminar, we will order PIZZA and watch a MOVIE together in the Lounge.

Abstract

Networks are widely used to characterize and model a broad range of complex systems in various fields from biology to the social sciences. Important information about the topology and dynamics of the network can be obtained by analyzing random walks on the network.

This talk will give the theoretical background of the random-walker-based approach for complex networks and address some of the current challenges, such as partitioning of networks and identifying important nodes.
