Networks of the future

Networks are all around us. The roads that we use, the electric grid, our water supply, social networks, to name a few. But also communication networks like the world wide web and the mobile phones network. They form the backbone of our society, with more and more users and capabilities. As these networks are becoming increasingly complex, there are serious chances that they fail or even collapse. To make networks future-proof, we must thoroughly understand their dynamics.

In this ‘Tuesday Talks: Science Insights’, Michel Mandjes, Professor of Probability and Operations Research, will discuss his research into understanding the structure, dynamics, design and control of networks, the current trends, and the perspectives he sees in Leiden.
