Dynamics of network structure

Networks arise as a consequence of an evolutionary process. One example of such processes are found in social networks, modeled in two applets. Another example of a process in which structure can emerge in dynamics of networks is through the merging process, which can be implemented in a bipartite and an non bipartite version, respectively. Merging may be relevant to describe an economy of companies which may merge or take over each others contacts. Other examples of evolving networks are found in biology, where the regulatory and metabolic network of an organism have arisen through a historical process involving a number of complex processes. One such process is gene duplication.
