i-CONN Seminar Series: 'Multilayer Networks: Structure and Function'

2nd December 2020, 13:30 to 14:30, Online (via Zoom), Professor Ginestra Bianconi, School of Mathematical Sciences, Queen Mary University of London

Multilayer networks [1] are emerging as a novel and powerful way to describe complex systems.

Uncovering the interplay between multilayer network structure and function is a big theoretical challenge with a vast realm of applications. On the other side the urgency of understanding real-world multilayer network problems requires novel theoretical approaches. In this talk we will show how the statistical mechanics theory beyond multilayer networks reveals the information encoded in these structures and its effect on multilayer network robustness.
