  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This poster summarizes the milestones hit in network research. It opens by defining networks and their significance, and then goes through explaining in logical order all major contributions to network study. The poster starts by describing the work done by Travers and Milgram in determining the world’s shortest path length, and then highlights the major work done by Strogatz and Watts in defining small-world networks. It then goes on to discuss work done by Albert and Barábasi in scale-free networks. The poster concludes by providing examples of network application, and discussing what is next in network study.
