World Trade Atlas 1870-2013

M. Boguñá applications 01/03/2017

We present the World Trade Atlas 1870-2013, a collection of annual world trade maps in which distances incorporate the different dimensions that affect international trade, beyond mere geography. The atlas provides us with information regarding the long-term evolution of the international trade system and demonstrates that, in terms of trade, the world is not flat, but hyperbolic. You can check the evolution of world trade in this interactive video tool

New paper in Nature Communications

Nature Physics Research Highlights, A. Klopper publications 01/03/2017

The old maxim that it's less about what you know than who you know is an appropriate analogy for how the behaviour of a complex network can be profoundly influenced by the weights of its links. Read more

New paper in Nature Physics

M Boguñá publications 01/02/2017

We show that multiplex systems are not random combinations of single network layers. Instead, they are organized in specific ways dictated by hidden geometric correlations between the layers.

Postdoctoral position available (closed)

redacciĂłn advices 06/03/2015

We invite applications for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate (1+1 years) in Network Science-Mapping Complexity at the University of Barcelona (Spain). The successful candidate will be required to join us in the investigation of complex networks embedded in hidden metric spaces to get insights into the connection between the structure and function in biological complex systems.

Complex architecture of primes and natural numbers

NewScientist publications 08/10/2014

Is there a pattern behind prime numbers? This is one of the biggest questions in mathematics. Now networks that reproduce relationships between primes and non-primes could point the way to an answer. Read the paper.

New paper in Physical Review X

Phys. Rev. X publications 29/09/2014

Online social networks offer a data-driven way to study patterns of human behavior on small and large scales. Researchers have shown that individuals are significantly more likely to enroll in social networks based on the influence of one active friend than the influence of mass-media campaigns.

New paper in Phyical Review X

M. Boguñá publications 28/05/2014

Strong clustering in networks induces a core-periphery organization responsible for the emergence of a double percolation transition associated with the same symmetry breaking.

Human Brain, Internet, and Cosmology: Similar Laws at Work?

UC San Diego publications 20/11/2012

The structure of the universe and the laws that govern its growth may be more similar than previously thought to the structure and growth of the human brain and other complex networks, such as the Internet or a social network of trust relationships between people, according to a new paper published in the science journal Nature’s Scientific Reports.

New paper in Nature

UCSD publications 13/09/2012

Do you know who Michael Jackson or George Washington was? You most likely do: they are what we call “household names” because these individuals were so ubiquitous. But what about Giuseppe Tartini or John Bachar? Read the paper
