Hosted by The NetSci 2022 Conference
, this Satellite Symposium
aims to stimulate discussions towards an in-depth understanding of higher-order connectivity in emergent functional properties of complex systems by covering recent developments in the field.
Recent studies have revealed that networks representing complex systems across the scales, from the brain to large-scale social dynamics, possess higher-order architecture supporting the network’s function. Formally, this hidden structure is described within the algebraic topology techniques, such as aggregates of simplexes (triangles, tetrahedrons, and higher cliques). This Satellite Symposium will bring together researchers investigating the higher-order topology and dynamics of complex systems, including theoretical and numerical aspects and data-driven modelling. The focus is on questions revealing the interplay between topology and dynamics:
- How do higher-order structures support the dynamics and contribute to the emergent functional features in various complex systems?
- How may different topologies arise representing geometrical features of different nonlinear processes?
