Welcome to the course blog for MS&E 135 Networks at Stanford University. This course explores how diverse social, economic, and technological systems are built up from connections, and how the study of networks can help us understand these systems.
During the spring quarter of 2016, enrolled undergraduate students will be writing regular posts on varied subject matters and current events related to the course. Topics include: networked markets, social networks, information networks, the aggregate behavior of crowds, information diffusion, the implications of popular concepts such as “six degrees of separation” and the “friendship paradox.”
The blog is visible to the public, however only students and course staff are able to post and comment. Students should refer to the course blog guide for more information.
