Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Social networks of real acquaintances and on the internet are at the center of interest in sociology, economics, political science, medicine, applied physics, computer science, and have a clear impact on the everyday life of people. However, at present, when analyzing communication and information flows across a social network, there is still need for an accepted and established theory and for a systematic study on the nature and the causes of the endogenous evolution of the network itself, the detection of communities in the network, and on the propagation of information, news, habits and opinions across the network. Those aspects are related one to the other, in non trivial ways, and theoretical models, eventually combined with the analysis of real data, would be of enormous help in the understanding of many phenomena with analogous features.

Any contribution related to the above questions, shared by scholars from different areas of research, would be of great interest for the interdisciplinary community of researchers who study social networks.
