Acerca del Curso

Learn how to model social and economic networks and their impact on human behavior. How do networks form, why do they exhibit certain patterns, and how does their structure impact diffusion, learning, and other behaviors? We will bring together models and techniques from economics, sociology, math, physics, statistics and computer science to answer these questions. The course begins with some empirical background on social and economic networks, and an overview of concepts used to describe and measure networks. Next, we will cover a set of models of how networks form, including random network models as well as strategic formation models, and some hybrids. We will then discuss a series of models of how networks impact behavior, including contagion, diffusion, learning, and peer influences.

I was new to network theory but the concepts were very well articulated. A whole new way of looking at what makes social relationships, favor exchange(s) and social networks work. Well worth the time.

Very well done and explained, full of insight in the social network analysis!!! Lots of ideas about using it in company and team behaviours! Economical analysis of financial contagion is insightful!!!

This is a fascinating and stimulating course in which I learned enough to make my brain overheat at the end of every session. It's heavy for the non-mathmetician, but you just have to struggle to keep up when the going gets numerically tough. My one gripe is that it leans too far towards formulas, and not enough to real-world examples and application. For example, in Week 6 admist the equations, there was suddenly a look at how it applies to drop-out rates in the labour market. That was all too brief, and more of this would really lift the course. Jackson really knows his onions however and is an interesting and sympathetic tutor.
