This course will cover a variety of interesting topics on network theory and dynamic systems (e.g., markets, auctions etc.). The student should become enabled to understand the structure and the dynamics of network models and how to apply them to structures of artefacts and human behaviors in the World Wide Web.
Students are expected to have background knowledge on linear algebra:
- know what a matrix is;
- know how matrix multiplication works;
- know what eigenvalues and eigenvectors are.
We recommend some online videos  explaining these ideas if you are not familiar with them yet.
The lectures will be held by Prof. Steffen Staab and Dr. Sarah de Nigris.

Students will deepen their understanding of this course during the exercises. Assignments can be accomplished in groups of at most two persons. Students need to accomplish at least 60% of the assignments in order to attend the final exam. Plagiarism is strictly forbidden and will result in disqualification from the final exam, of both sides of the plagiarism (copying and being copied). Students are also expected to explain some of the assignments.
