Another manifestation of the popularity of the ideas of the network science is the number of courses at Coursera, which deal with different aspects of the network approach to various fields. Here is the current list:
- Networked life by Michael Kearns from University of Pennsylvania
- Social network analysis by Lada Adamic from University of Michigan
- Network Analysis in Systems Biology by Avi M’ayan from Mount Sinai
- Networks: Friends, Money, and Bytes by Mung Chiang from Princeton University
- Social and Economic networks: Models and Analysis by Matthew O. Jackson from Stanford
By spending not that long time on each of these courses, my pick would be the course by Matthew Jackson, as the one with the richest content.
And here is also
- Epidemics: The Dynamics of Infectious Diseases from a Penn State,
which has nothing to do with networks (well, almost), but a very well thought and entertaining course.
