▶ Large-Scale Structure in Networks
Mark Newman May 2, 2014 Annual Science Board Symposium and Meeting Complexity: Theory and Practice
To know the structure is to know a HUMONGOUS part of the function and, thus, the ability to predict. It seems to me to be a large fractal pattern of clusters, nodes and connections (but, that is just in my relatively uneducated eye).
Never forget, though, that there are important qualitative aspects to networks (think of defacto qualities of the nodes, groups of nodes and the connections amongst them). Very important for social and/or ecological/causal relation networks (essentially, a network that outlines and maps accurately the function of a system and all of the flows of information and material resources).
Really cool stuff here.
Think about it..
