The New Science of Networks by Albert-Laszlo Barabasi

The New Science of Networks by Albert-Laszlo Barabasi (Plume, 2003).
1. Describe several networks discussed by Barabasi and explain why they do or do not qualify as “systems” according to the definitions offered in the course.
2. Explain the difference between “scale-free” networks and “random” networks. Describe how each type of network is formed and provide examples of each.

3. Although many interesting systems occur in the natural world, the focus of systems engineering has traditionally been on “human-designed” systems. The Internet clearly qualifies as such a system, since it is clearly of human origin. In what ways is the Internet similar to traditional human-designed systems? How is it different?

4. What implications does your answer to #3 have for the design of systems for the full life cycle?
