DyNo
Description:

In the last years we witnessed to a shift from static network analysis to a dynamic networks analysis, i.e., the study of networks whose structure change over time. As time goes by, all the perturbations which occur on the network topology due to the rise and fall of nodes and edges have repercussions on the network phenomena we are used to observe. As an example, evolution over time of social interactions in a network can play an important role in the diffusion of an infectious disease.
