By Prof. Joyati Debnath, Winona State University, USA.

We see the existence of complex networks in all aspects of our lives, they include communication networks, neural network, circuit network, spread of infection network, Facebook friends’ network, transportation network, trading network, just to name a few. The sizes of the complex networks are increasing by the minute as we progress towards the next century. It is apparent that we need to rely on available spanning tree analysis and the integration of multimedia tools and other studies for understanding the networks. The number of spanning trees is an important invariant of a network. The spanning trees entropy of a complex network provides a useful insight about its robustness. The increase of this number provides the reliability and availability of the complex networks, whereas effective integration of multimedia tools can provide specific events for the network simulation. The effective complexity analysis and network reliability is important aspects of complex networks. This keynote presentation will focus on the fundamental techniques on complexity analysis of the topology of Small-World, Flower, and Mosaic Networks, a recent collaborated research work. Two combinatorial approaches, namely bipartition and the reduction methods that facilitate the calculation of the complexity of complex and large networks will be discussed and highlight the potential of these approaches.
