- Complex Networks: Challenges and Perspectives
2311 BD Leiden
While financial systems appear to be stable most of the time, big unforeseen events such as the financial crisis in 2008 have shown that major instabilities can develop abruptly. What are the network origins of such instabilities? Is it possible to determine whether a financial network is departing from an equilibrium state? Can early-warning signals of financial collapse be identified in real networks?
