Adopting a cross-disciplinary approach, the review character of this monograph sets it apart from specialized journals. The editor is advised by a first-class board of international scientists, such that the carefully selected and invited contributions represent the latest and most relevant findings. The resulting review uses a common language and enables both researchers and newcomers in both natural and social science as well as engineering to access the most important results on the following topics: epidemic dynamics on adaptive networks; forecast and control of epidemics; community detection in networks; control of excitable media; caustics; evolution of cooperation; and econophysics.
