In the reading group Network Theory, members present works from the scientific or technical literature to the other members. Our field of interest covers all theoretical aspects that can be used by researchers dealing with networks (graphs, telecommunication networks, social networks, power grids, etc). This includes general theoretical tools that are not specific to networks.

In the past sessions, we covered topics such as:
