Big Data and Complex Networks Group

Research We are interested in the science and engineering of complex networks and systems.
Projects Brunet: We are designing and implementing high-performance peer-to-peer protocols and systems.

Netmodeler: We have developed and continue to evolve a C++ class library for modeling and simulation of complex networks.

Random Graph Load-balancer: We have developed the theory for a decentralized load-balancing architecture based on the insights of random graphs. An implementation for grid computing is currently under way.

Social Networks and Dynamics: We are investigating a number of issues related to models for social interactions, and how such interactions give rise to macroscopic phenomena such as fame. We are also investigating ways to harness social networks to provide reliable information services, such as spam filtering.
