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.
