Prof. Jackson has done a rigorous and comprehensive job writing a book that covers pretty much all the main (and current) topics of the Network Theory.

Excellent for Strategic Networks Jan. 3 2010
By IdeaGames - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Jackson has really produced a wonderfully cogent book with an economic approach to studying networks. To be clear, the book is aimed at readers with a degree of mathematical sophistication. He examines how (cooperative and non-cooperative) game theory can be applied to networks, i.e. models of friendship between individuals, alliances between firms and other similar situations. The empirical analysis of networks is treated in a couple of chapters, but perhaps deserves a separate book. Overall, this is an ideal place to start for someone interested in developing microeconomic and game-theoretic models of network interactions.

The importance of stochastics in the social life Sept. 29 2011
By Edoardo Angeloni - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a very useful approach to the social and economic networks by an interesting mathematical view. The exposition is no very difficult as calculations, if one knows sufficiently the game theory. This method is a mix by the Statistics and the Graph theory, while a significative role is related to the Bayes formula. This theory depends in large part by the game theory, let be cooperative or not-cooperative. The applications are about the biology, next the sociology and the economics.

A clear book with the right balance June 30 2014
By Irith Hartman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like this book very much. It has the right balance, in my view, between verbal and 'social science' explanations, and mathematical expositions. It provides enough mathematical background for those who do not have it, as well as social and economic background and motivation. I intend to use some chapters in this book for a "Networks" course I will teach.
