points = are referred as vertices or nodes
lines are referred to as edges

The pattern of connections can be presented as a network

The structure of the network (pattern) will have an impact on its components.

: Internet- how the routes that the data take over the network
Social Network- how people learn

Some information could be attached to Network edges and vertices such as name and strength
Network Analysis Tools
tools that use some calculations to tell you something about the network. ex. Social Network Analysis (UCinet)

issue for discussing

The Web as a network
the concept directed

Network visualization
Network Measures
Centrality- degree centrality
in-degree and out- degree

Geodesic distance

small world effect
