Topic: Theory that can be used to study networks.

Audience: The reading group Network Theory is intended for researchers in mathematics and computer science interested in networks, but anyone can attend online.

Practical details: The sessions are held every third Wednesday from 10:30 am to 11:30 pm (Central European Summer Time), in the premises of the Lincs and online. To receive the invitations, register to the mailing list. Videos, slides and notebooks of previous sessions are on the website.

Coordinator: François Durand (


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:

As a speaker:

  • You may present a paper, a set of papers, a book chapter, or prepare a short introduction course to a given topic.
  • You do not need to be a specialist of what you present.
