Abstract or Summary
  • Networks are a structure common to many disciplines. Research on networks has taken different forms in domains such as graph theory, sociology, vascular networks, small-world networks, geomorphology, ecology, evolution and engineering. Networks may be modeled as non-spatial networks (unvalued graphs), which contain only topological information, or as spatial networks (valued graphs), which contain both topological and distance or location information. Geographers study spatial networks whether the networks occupy absolute or relative space. All networks have topology and connectivity. Many networks are thought to have emergent, systems properties of flow, feedback, hierarchy, growthlreduction, indirect effects and robustness to error. As such, networks are a useful conceptual tool for modeling phenomena in and across many diverse fields.
