Description

Free final test to get a certificate inside. Suggested playback 1.25.

With this course you will learn what graphs are and how to use these structures to solve real life problems. In the second section of this course you will learn what complex networks are and how you can extract information from them. Finally you will see two practical examples of network analysis and some tools to enjoy graph theory and complex networks analysis.

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone willing to know how things connected together form meaningful structures
