- LINKED- HOW EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED TO EVERYTHING ELSE AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR BUSINESS-SCIENCE-AND EVERYDAY LIFE
DetailsA cocktail party. A terrorist cell. Ancient bacteria. An international conglomerate. All are networks, and all are a part of a surprising scientific revolution.In Linked, Albert-Laszlo Barabasi, the nations foremost expert in the new science of networks, takes us on an intellectual adventure to prove that social networks, corporations, and living organisms are more similar than previously thought.Barabasi shows that grasping a full understanding of network science will someday allow us to design blue-chip businesses, stop the outbreak of deadly diseases, and influence the exchange of ideas and information. By focussing on connective structures instead of individual components, Barabasi provides a new perspective for understanding how the world works- from the bonds between atoms to the connective power of the Internet.Authoritative and engaging, Linked is a fascinating invitation to explore the next scientific revolution, link by link. Just as James Gleick and the Erdos-Renyi model brought the discovery of chaos theory to the general public, Linked tells the story of the true science of the future and of experiments in statistical mechanics on the internet, all vital parts of what would eventually be called the Barabasi-Albert model..ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Albert-Laszlo Barabasi is a Distinguished University Professor at Northeastern University, where he directs the Center for Complex Network Research. He is also an associate member of the Center of Cancer Systems Biology (CCSB) at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard University.
