CMPS 17 Social Networks

Welcome to the website of CMPS17 Social Networks, a new course that will be offered for the second time in Winter 2013.

The course is meant to be interesting for students from all directions (not just Computer Science). It includes an introduction into basic statistics and probabilities, and fulfills the SR general education requirement.

We will use the textbook Networks, Crowds, and Markets (Easley and Kleinberg 2010), available from the Bay-Tree bookstore, from Amazon, and here electronically for free.

We are using eCommons.ucsc.edu for distributing information regarding the course. Please login to ecommons for access to the course syllabus etc.
