Computational social network is an academic discipline concerned with the applied, computational, and mathematical aspects of social computing. Computational sociology, culturomics, computational economics, and cliodynamics are certain sub-fields focused on the understanding and investigation of social and behavioral interactions and relationships. Some of the tools used for social analysis include network analysis, social simulation, modelling, and media analysis. This book presents the complex subject of computational social networks in the most comprehensible and easy to understand language. From theories to research to practical applications, case studies related to all contemporary topics of relevance to this field have been included herein. This book will prove to be immensely beneficial to students and researchers in this field.
