Abstract: Everyone has heard the phrase “it’s a small world.” But what is a small world? Are we really living in one? And if we are, is that important? We’ll use graph theory to show that small world networks exist, and that our social network really is a small world. Then we’ll investigate what happens when agents interact within a network to see how network structure might affect our lives.
