Complex systems made simple

Net­work sci­en­tists at North­eastern have designed an algo­rithm capable of iden­ti­fying the subset of com­po­nents that reveal a com­plex system’s overall nature.

Validation for flu prediction

In 2009, North­eastern Uni­ver­sity net­work sci­en­tist Alessandro Vespig­nani devel­oped a com­pu­ta­tional model that pre­dicted the spread of the H1N1 virus. Three years later, new studies show that these pre­dic­tions were highly accurate.

Art + science = career

Stu­dent com­mence­ment speaker Emily Batt dreams of run­ning a studio in which fine artists and engi­neers col­lab­o­rate on exper­i­mental projects in sci­ence and design.

What is network science?

Albert-​​​​László Barabási, Dis­tin­guished Pro­fessor of Physics, explains how he and his North­eastern col­leagues are exploring com­plex net­works that emerge in nature, sci­ence and technology.

Forecasting the spread of emerging diseases

World-​​renowned sta­tis­tical physi­cist Alessandro Vespig­nani was installed as North­eastern University’s Stern­berg Family Dis­tin­guished Uni­ver­sity Pro­fessor of Physics on Tuesday in the Raytheon Amphitheater.
