Easley & Kleinberg Text on Networks ....

easley kleinberg.png

David Easley and Jon Kleinberg of Cornell have written what might be the first real undergraduate textbook on networks. They developed it as part of a very successful course (cross-listed as Econ/Soc/CS/InfoSci) at Cornell.

The course website is here.

The text, Networks, Crowds, and Markets (to be published shortly by Cambridge) is here.

The text (as well as the course website) has homework problems.


Even though the book has too much economics in it, it should be a big hit for many disciplines. Parts of it can certainly be understood by any social science major, and the more technical parts, on epidemics, diffusion, the internet, and dynamics can be used in math, stat, or physics courses.
