"As Chaos explained the science of disorder, Nexus reveals the new science of connection and the odd logic of six degrees of separation." "How can geometry explain the puzzles of human behavior? In this incisive insightful work Mark Buchanan presents the fundamental principles of the emerging field of "small-worlds" theory - the idea that a hidden pattern is the key to how networks interact and exchange information, whether that network is the information highway or the firing of neurons in the brain. Mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, and social scientists are working to decipher this complex organizational system, for it may yield a blueprint of dynamic interactions within our physical as well as social worlds. Highlighting groundbreaking research behind network theory. Buchanan documents mounting support for the small-worlds idea and demonstrates its multiple applications to diverse problems - whether explaining the volatile global economy or the Human Genome Project, the spread of infectious disease or ecological damage. Nexus is an exciting introduction to the hidden geometry that weaves our lives so inextricably together."--BOOK JACKET.… (mer)

Bella panoramica sulla "network science" e la sua influenza nelle scienze della complessità da parte di un grande divulgatore ( )

The subtitle of this book is small worlds and the emerging science of networks. The author is very impressed by the observation that it takes only a few steps across a social network, or in neural networks, for information to travel between any two individuals. The process is facilitated by random connnections in otherwise wellordered networks. The author attempts to link a number of separate phenomena under this theory, although I kept wondering exactly what the insight was. The author made numerous attempts to show how this networking theory could help explain processes and organizational principles. but the insights seem banal, and not worth the effort. Easily read.

Whenever you try to examine something in isolation, you find it's connected to everything else in the universe. And only a small number of links can get you from one thing to any other.
