Special Issue on : "Analysis of Large Complex Networks"

Guest Editors :

Natarajan Meghanathan, Jackson State University, USA

Yenumula Reddy, Grambling State University, USA

Theme and Scope

Network Science deals with the analysis and visualization of large complex network graphs and the development of efficient methods to study the characteristics of networks involving hundreds and thousands of nodes. Network Science falls within the realm of "Big Data Computing" where the Big Data is the larger graphs that model complex real-world networks. This special issue is intended to cover contributions in the theory behind the graph models, algorithms and analysis measures as well as on the use of state-of-the-art tools and cyber infrastructure for network modeling, analysis and visualization.

Topics of interest :
