Networks - Bonato3 a graph G = (V(G),E(G)) consists of a nonempty set of vertices or nodes V, and a set of edges E

nodesedges directed graphs (digraphs)Networks - Bonato4Degreesthe degree of a node x, writtendeg(x)is the number of edges incident with x

First Theorem of Graph Theory:

Networks - Bonato5The web graphnodes: web pages

edges: links

over 1 trillion nodes, with billions of nodes added each day

Networks - Bonato8Power laws in the web graphpower law degree distribution

(Broder et al, 01)

Geometric modelswe introduced a stochastic network model which simulates power law degree distributions and other propertiesSpatially Preferred Attachment (SPA) Modelnodes have a region of influence whose volume is a function of their degreeNetworks - Bonato9

SPA model (Aiello,Bonato,Cooper,Janssen,Praat, 09)Networks - Bonato10

as nodes are born, they are more likely to enter a region of influence with larger volume (degree) over time, a power law degree distribution results

Domination sets in PPI (Milenkovic, Memisevic, Bonato, Przulj, 2011)dominating sets in graphs

we found that dominating sets inPPI networks are vital for normalcellular functioning and signallingdominating sets capture biologically vital proteins and drug targetsmight eventually lead to new drug therapies

edges: social interaction(eg friendship)

Dimension of an OSNdimension of OSN: minimum number of attributes needed to classify nodes

what is a credible mathematical formula for the dimension of an OSN?Networks - Bonato20GEO-P model (Bonato, Janssen, Praat, 2012)reverse engineering approachgiven network data GEO-P model predicts dimension of an OSN; i.e. the smallest number of attributes needed to identify usersthat is, given the graph structure, we can (theoretically) recover the social spaceNetworks - Bonato21

How big can the cop number be?if the graph G with order n is disconnected, then the cop number can be as n

if G is connected, then no one knows how big the cop number can be!

Meyniels Conjecture: c(G) = O(n1/2).
