Link to cybernetics
The template:Cybernetics is a nice box (below), but it implies network theory is some subcategory of cybernetics. I think that network theory is actually much wider than this, even if historically it grew out of cybernetics. --stochata 2 July 2005 07:23 (UTC)
Founder of network theory
I couldn't find any info on Google to back this up, but I'm currently attending Northwestern and the concensus among professors here seems to be that Prof. Luis Amaral is the founder of Network Theory. Anyone care to back me up on this? --jp3z
You've got to be kidding me...
Network theory is a stub? That is sad. I'll try to improve it if I can. Sr13 03:44, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
Info on networktehory
A lot of information on network analysis & measures is under "Social networks" - in my opinion that should be moved here. - AD —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 17:13, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
merge with Network Science ??
From what I'm reading, Network Science and Network Theory (as presented in this current article) are the same thing. Any thoughts on whether or not there are actually two discrete topics here, or if this could be merged? Sprhodes (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 03:05, 12 November 2010 (UTC).
- There is a discussion about merging and spinning out network-related articles including this one at Talk:Social network#General network domain cleanup. Madcoverboy (talk) 19:08, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
- I am unable to locate this previous discussion at the location indicated or in the archive there. I am going to put up some merge banners and direct discussion here. ~Kvng (talk) 18:08, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
- I looked a little more closely to see if, absent any discussion for over a year, I could perform the merge. I determined that Network theory is apparently an application of Graph theory and Network science is Network theory plus other stuff. There's not an obvious merge opportunity here. ~Kvng (talk) 18:41, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
This article talks a lot about networks as graphs, but doesn't include very much at all about categories. There's been a lot of research in recent years about networks from a (monoidal) categorical perspective, with promising results, including work by John Baez and Brendan Fong. I think we should include some of that here. --Daviddwd (talk) 20:51, 28 August 2014 (UTC) Daviddwd (talk) 20:51, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
