welcome to the BarabásiLab gallery

Our Research directed by Professor Albert-László Barabási has a simple objective: think networks. It is about how networks emerge, what they look like, and how they evolve; and how networks impact on understanding of complex systems. Please enjoy the collection of network images created by our lab and research staff or from other interested collaborators.

(2): Boston Inventor Networks mid-1990s: This graph illustrates the largest connected component of patented Boston inventors in the mid-1990s. Each of the nodes illustrates an inventor. The color corresponds to the inventor's organization and the size of the node corresponds to the importance of the inventions. A tie corresponds to co-authorship of a patent. Red ties are old, blue ties are recent, and green ties are most recent. The close-up illustrates the centrality of MIT in the Boston networks.
