The Structure and Function of Complex Networks
by M. E. J. Newman
Publisher: arXiv 2003
Number of pages: 58
Inspired by empirical studies of networked systems such as the Internet, social networks, and biological networks, researchers have in recent years developed a variety of techniques and models to help us understand or predict the behavior of these systems. Here we review developments in this field, including such concepts as the small-world effect, degree distributions, clustering, network correlations, random graph models, models of network growth and preferential attachment, and dynamical processes taking place on networks.

We think that if you have more than one computer in your home, you should have a network. That belief has its roots in the fact that we're generally lazy, and we believe everyone should do everything in the easiest possible manner.
