Social and Economic Networks: Models and Analysis
Taught by Matthew O. Jackson
Matthew O. Jackson is the William D. Eberle Professor of Economics at Stanford University.
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.
