The science of networks represented a substantial change in the way we see natural and technological phenomena. Now we have a better understanding that networks are, in most cases, networks of networks or multi-layered networks. This book provides a summary of the research done during one of the largest and most multidisciplinary projects in network science and complex systems (Multiplex). The science of complex networks originated from the empirical evidence that most of the structures of systems such as the internet, sets of protein interactions, and collaboration between people, share (at least qualitatively) common structural properties. This book examines how properties of networks that interact with other networks can change dramatically. The authors show that, dependent on the properties of links that interconnect two or more networks, we may derive different conclusions about the function and the possible vulnerabilities of the overall system of networks. This book presents a series of novel theoretical results together with their applications, providing a comprehensive overview of the field.

This book contains original research chapters related to the interdisciplinary field of complex networks spanning biological and environmental networks, social, technological, and economic networks. Many natural phenomena can be modeled as networks where nodes are the primitive compounds and links represent their interactions, similarities, or distances of sorts. Complex networks have an enormous impact on research in various fields like biology, social sciences, engineering, and cyber-security to name a few. The topology of a network often encompasses important information on the functionality and dynamics of the system or the phenomenon it represents. Network science is an emerging interdisciplinary discipline that provides tools and insights to researchers in a variety of domains. NetSci-X is the central winter conference within the field and brings together leading researchers and innovators to connect, meet, and establish interdisciplinary channels for collaboration. It is the largest and best known event in the area of network science. This text demonstrates how ideas formulated by authors with different backgrounds are transformed into models, methods, and algorithms that are used to study complex systems across different domains and will appeal to researchers and students within in the field.

This volume provides new insights into the functioning of organizational, managerial and market societies. Multilevel analysis and social network analysis are described and the authors show how they can be combined in developing the theory, methods and empirical applications of the social sciences. This book maps out the development of multilevel reasoning and shows how it can explain behavior, through two different ways of contextualizing it. First, by identifying levels of influence on behavior and different aggregations of actors and behavior, and complex interactions between context and behavior. Second, by identifying different levels as truly different systems of agency: such levels of agency can be examined separately and jointly since the link between them is affiliation of members of one level to collective actors at the superior level. It is by combining these approaches that this work offers new insights. New case studies and datasets that explore new avenues of theorizing and new applications of methodology are presented. This book will be useful as a reference work for all social scientists, economists and historians who use network analyses and multilevel statistical analyses. Philosophers interested in the philosophy of science or epistemology will also find this book valuable. ​

What is "digital telephony"? To the authors, the term digital telephony de notes the technology used to provide a completely digital point-to-point voice communication system from end to end. This implies the use of digital technol ogy from one end instrument through the transmission facilities and switching centers to another end instrument. Digital telephony has become possible only because of the recent and ongoing surge of semiconductor developments allowing microminiaturization and high reliability along with reduced costs. This book deals with both the future and the present. Thus, the first chapter is entitled, "A Network in Transition." As baselines, Chapters 2, 3, and 10 provide the reader with the present status of telephone technology in terms of voice digitization as well as switching principles. The book is an outgrowth of the authors' continuing engineering education course, "Digital Telephony," which they have taught since January, 1980, to attendees from business, industry, government, common carriers, and tele phony equipment manufacturers. These attendees come from a wide variety of educational backgrounds. but generally have the equivalent of at least a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. The book has been written to provide both the engineering student and the practicing engineer a working knowledge of the principles of present and future voice communication systems based upon the use of the public switched network. Problems or discussion questions have been included at the ends of the chapters to facilitate the book's use as a senior level or first year graduate level course text.

The field of telecommunications is a rapidly growing one, with the bulk of the industry predicated on the telephone or PSTN (Public Switched Telecommunica-tion Network). The primary goal of Telecommunication System Engineering, Third Edition is to describe the development of the PSTN, the rationale behind its structure, and how dramatically it is evolving. Telecommunication System Engineering, Third Edition presents a technical overview of telecommunication networks from a system viewpoint, with the aim of showing how one discipline can interact with another to reach a desired goal. As in previous editions, the author covers all the concepts necessary for a complete understanding of the design of practical telecommunication networks, whether they are meant to carry voice, data, facsimile, telemetry, video, or any combination of these. Both local and long distance (toll) switching and transmission are covered, all in great detail, and two entire chapters are devoted to the subject of signaling. For the Third Edition, the author has amended and reorganized his material to include the latest technology in the industry. For example, Chapter 6 has added material on new traffic routing techniques in the national network, and network design and configurations from a Bellcore perspective, while Chapter 7 features new material on line-of-sight microwave systems and satellite communications. Chapter 8 covers the latest developments in digital loop carrier, SONET and SDH, and delta modulation, and Chapter 11 offers new information on TCP/IP and related protocols, as well as IBM system network architecture (SNA). Two entire chapters have been added on emerging broadband-data technologies and the asynchronous transfer mode (ATM). In addition, chapters have also been added on cellular/mobile radio and PCN/PCS and network management techniques. As in previous editions, the author approaches the information covered in a systematic and interactive way. Each chapter builds logically on the previous one, and the various disciplines are tied together with an eye toward combining them in the design of efficient and cost-effective telecommunication networks. Telecommunication System Engineering, Third Edition remains an ideal reference source for telecommunications managers, technicians, and other practicing professionals as well as advanced students in telecommunications. Many changes have taken place in the field of telecommunications since the Second Edition of the popular and successful Telecommunication System Engineering was published in 1989. The Third Edition marks a major and groundbreaking revision of what is already a widely used and highly acclaimed text. As in previous editions, the author presents intertwining disciplines in a systematic and interactive way. To reflect recent developments in the field, the author has added chapters on such vital topics as cellular radio, asynchronous transfer mode, broadband technologies, and network management. Contents of the Third Edition include: * Some Basics in Conventional Telephony * Local Networks * Conventional Analog Switching in Telephony * Signaling for Analog Telephone Networks * Introduction to Transmission for Telephony * Long-Distance Networks * The Design of Long-Distance Links * Digital Transmission Systems * Digital Switching and Networks * Introduction to Data Communications * Data Networks and Their Operation * Local Area Networks * Integrated Services Digital Networks * Emerging Broadband Data Technologies * The Asynchronous Transfer Mode and Broadband ISDN * CCITT Signaling System No. 7 * Cellular/Mobile Radio and PCN/PCS * Network Management
