Complex Networks Approach to Techno-Social Interactions

Department of theoretical physics of the J. Stefan Institute receives new funds for the research of dynamics of emotion reactions in cyberspace using network theory & advanced statistical physics of complex systems within the context of the CyberEmotions project funded by the 7th Framework initiative of the European Union with participation of nine institutes in Europe and a total of 3.6 million EUR.
