Über den Kurs

Learn how to model social and economic networks and their impact on human behavior. How do networks form, why do they exhibit certain patterns, and how does their structure impact diffusion, learning, and other behaviors? We will bring together models and techniques from economics, sociology, math, physics, statistics and computer science to answer these questions. The course begins with some empirical background on social and economic networks, and an overview of concepts used to describe and measure networks. Next, we will cover a set of models of how networks form, including random network models as well as strategic formation models, and some hybrids. We will then discuss a series of models of how networks impact behavior, including contagion, diffusion, learning, and peer influences. You can find a more detailed syllabus here: You can find a short introductory videao here:

Really enjoyed this course. The professor is really good and covers quite a lot of ground during the lectures. Good way to get into complex networks! Probably gonna do some studying on my own now :)

Very good course on Social Networks, and also a hard one even for graduate level. Generally assignments are not too tough but fully understanding all the concepts take lots of extra readings.

Buen curso en general. Sin embargo, podría estar más actualizado en términos de aplicaciones para el año 2020. Especialmente en trabajo con datos. Además, algunas evaluaciones adolecen de elementos que no están contenidos en el material, y si bien uno puede intuir a aplicar la teoría bajo otros contextos, muchas veces los resultados no son tan intuitivos, quedando algunas dudas respecto a esos contenidos más que clarificar dicho tópico.

Greatly insightful and resourceful content for future research. As a recent university graduate interested in graduate school I found the course challenging meaning determination and consistency contributed to the successful completion of the course. Rewatching lectures and seeking external support helped me comprehend concepts through application.

Very interesting course, I raccomand it. It gives me a lot of notions and different view of networks, even if I'm already working with them. Very notable also the lot of references by which you can expand your knowledge and look for all the details of the field you are interested in.

Keep attention on the level, it is not for beginners :)

It's a quiet complex topic in general terms. It is well covered, but In my opinion there should be at least an exercise per video, explaining something similar to the in-video questions. It should have a demonstrative part rather than just talking about it and showing the formula.

Excellent course. The labs are the best. Pajek and Gephi will be handy for network graphing and analyzing data. Thank you Professor Matthew Jackson. Your work is very good for reference.

Interesting survey of modern network theory, from Erdos-Renyi random graphs, to SIS ("flu") models, and games on networks. Rather academic at times, without the rigour.

The course is vast. The Professor is to the point and doesn't lack knowledge in his field.

I'd recommend this course for anyone interested in Economics. Loved it.

I loved everything so far, the quiz questions are well selected, but, I believe there are some notions which should be explained further mathematically.

Very complex topic, very well presented. The materials are great! Would have been better to made mathematics pre-requisite clearer.

Some quizzes have wrong answers, but overall it was quite a good introduction into network analysis.

I request Prof Jackson to speak more directly into the mike. At many points he is not audible.

The discussion forums ought to be more responsive

A bit tough, but really worth the effort.

I'm sorry, but this course is really boring. Hopefully this lecture give more interactive approach (like animated presentation, pop up question, and so on) rather than voice of text in the slide

Without previous knowledge in math, this course is not very useful.
