The Application of Current Complexity Theory to the Study of the Evolution of Social Networks
Current Bachelor Thesis is devoted to the analysis of the evolution of the social network as a complex system using approaches and methods of theory of complexity and theoretical paradigms of physics. It is known that simple models oriented to linear dependencies or the presence of repeated patterns in the historical behaviour of the system cannot cope with more complex systems that are able to endure catastrophes and non-equilibrium state. In this paper a model of describing the behaviour of such systems and the reasons that causes phase transitions is proposed.
