Watts to be a better companion read for this book. I found Everything is Obvious: The writing style is very good, for the most part. This book adresses the functional underpinnings of the now popular social networking phenomenon, and how it relates to crowd behavior, klejnberg emrgence and commerce.

That was an awesome and very informative read. I started to read this with an interest of computational study of networksbut later found myself diving into a very powerful stature of concepts and a way of thinking which this book has presented.

Feb 26, Soroveya Nderitu added it. Aug 09, Bernd rated it really liked it Shelves: Markets and Information Excellent text illuminating and bringing together different aspects of the interplay of individual incentives and aggregate behavior.

Networks, Crowds, and Markets Instructors: Mar 02, Bob Hancock rated it really eadley it. At points, the going will get rough and your eyes may glaze over, but there’s little harm to skipping these sections as each chapter is relatively self contained.


Networks, Crowds, and Markets: A Book by David Easley and Jon Kleinberg

I would suggest it to anyone interested in economics, philosophy, the amd sciences, or anyone who programs. Structural Models 1 week It is a comprehensive and thorough read to better understand the complexities of increasing “connectedness” in modern living.

This introductory undergraduate textbook takes an interdisciplinary look at economics, sociology, computing and information science, and applied mathematics to understand networks and behavior. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Assignment 2 – February 16, I myself had previously thought wrongly that Arrow’s impossibility theorem was a much bigger problem for democratic government than I do now; under the altogether reasonable assumption of single-peaked preferences it does not loom so large in fact, or at least when only one dimension is concerned.

I actually came to this book after reading Scale: To be fair, the authors do, in many places, note that accounting for more complete descriptions of reality is a matter of continuing research.

There will also be three or four problem sets.

CS194-21: Networks, Crowds, and Markets

Kleinberv found it too much qualitative even though there are a lot of sub-chapters where there are some demonstrations and is a good read before going to sleep. It is a good intro for interdisciplinary social science undergrads to get a first introduction to graphs and how they can help understanding the world, but in my case I think I would have appreciated a higher density of concepts per line.


This connectedness is found in many incarnations: Be the first to ask a question about Networks, Crowds, and Markets. But more of a chapter-level reference, driven by curiosity based on specific topics.

CS Networks, Crowds, and Markets

Assignment 4 – April 5, Due: As the name suggests, this book contains reasoning about how things work in a connected network from a basic ground level theme to a level sighting research interest among researchers.

The Small-World Phenomenon Assignments Assignment 4 – April 5, Due: There are also optional advanced slightly more mathy sections scattered throughout.

These are phenomena that involve networks, incentives, and the aggregate behavior of groups of people; they are based on the links that connect us and the ways in which our decisions can have subtle consequences for others. There are no formal prerequisites. Keeping in a note about the slightly complex nature of the mathematical equations, which always could be skipped without facing any loss of the concepts delivered, one should definitely give a read to understand the basic working of any form of network existing between people and mechanisms to how to get things done using it!
