Abstract

Networks arise pervasively in biology, physics, technology,

social science, and myriad other areas. Traditionally, a network is

modeled as a graph and consists of a time-independent collection of

entities (the nodes) that interact with each other via a single type of

edge. However, most networks include multiple types of connections

(which could represent, for example, different modes of transportation),

multiple subsystems, and nodes and/or edges that change in time. The study

of "multilayer networks", which is perhaps the most popular area of

network science, allows one to investigate networks with such

complexities. In this talk, I'll give an introduction to multilayer

networks and their applications.
