At the end of the lecture, students should have a comprehensive knowledge of complex networks and their appliation to the analysis of dynamical systems. We both present established methods as well as state-of-the-art research results.
Generally, prior knowledge of "Statistical Physics" and "Nonlinear Dynamics" is helpful, however, important aspects are recapitulated in the lecture.
