An overview of concepts and models of how networks form. There are applicable with basic concepts from probability theory, statistics, and some light calculus astonishingly well.
I loved everything so far, the quiz questions are well selected, but, I believe there are some notions which should be explained further mathematically.
The course is vast. The Professor is to the point and doesn't lack knowledge in his field.
I'd recommend this course for anyone interested in Economics. Loved it.
Dr. Jackson is clear and concise in his explanations and did a great job creating a high-level overview course on a subject for which he obviously has a much greater wealth of knowledge.
