New Article: "Dynamical Systems on Networks: A Tutorial"

I have now posted my article, Dynamical Systems on Networks: A Tutorial, which I previously circulated in incomplete form and which I followed in large part for the lecture notes on dynamical systems on networks.

Note that this is supplemental material for the lectures, but I think you'll find it helpful. You don't have to read it.

Consultation Sessions

I have scheduled the consultation sessions for Networks. There will be 3 sets of 4 hours each, and my plan (subject to change) is to run all of them myself. Here are the details:

Week 2: Mon, Tues: 2 - 4 pm (room C2)

Week 3: Mon, Tues: 2 - 4 pm (room C2)

Week 5: Mon, Tues: 2 - 4 pm (room C2)

Classes in Week 1 of TT

Classes to cover the 4th sheet will occur in Week 1 of TT as follows

[1] (Prescott, Oh; was on Tues even weeks in HT): TT week 1, Tue 29 April, 4:15 pm - 5:45 pm, Britton Room, Trinity College

[2] (Gilbert, Oh; was on Wed odd weeks in HT): TT week 1, Wed 30 April, 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm, C4

[3]: (Gilbert, Oh; was on Wed even weeks in HT): TT week 1, Wed 30 April, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm, C3

[4]: (Porter, Murevics; was on Fri odd weeks in HT): TT week 1, Mon 28 April, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm, C5

[5]: (Porter, Murevics; was on Fri even weeks in HT): TT week 1, Mon 28 April, 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm, C4

Slides Posted from Two of My Seminars

Once we get through the handwritten notes for Chapter 7 (which concerns "Dynamical Systems on Networks"), I'll plan on going through some slides from one of my talks on cascades and social influence on networks. I have now posted these slides among the course materials. I doubt I'll have time to go through all of them, but reading them should help cement your big-picture understanding about dynamical systems on networks (and it will help for some of the methodology as well).

I have also posted slides from one of my talks on multilayer community structure and functional brain networks. One person asked that I talk about networks from neuroscience in lecture. I don't think that I will get to this at all in lecture --- as I think the discussion of social influence on networks will be particularly helpful for Chapter 7 --- but it will provide that person with some thoughts on that topic and it will help cement your big-picture knowledge of Chapter 6 (so reading these slides is very much worthwhile, in my opinion). It also presents my view on multilayer networks --- which I hope will become the dominant view of the subject, given that I have written an ambitious review article that is trying to drive the entire field forward --- so it will be very helpful for that topic if you're interested in it.

Full Notes for Chapter 7 Now Available

I have now posted the full notes for Chapter 7. There are only a couple more pages besides what I already posted.
