Revealing network connectivity from dynamics

Reconstruction of network connectivity is a highly active research topic arising in broad variety of multidisciplinary fields. Nevertheless, state of the art approaches are still far from solving the entire problem. Many efforts have been made to tackle it but current methods are susceptible to recover spurious connections, are constrained to only specific cases or require an extensive sampling of network dynamics. We are currently developing theory on complex networks for retrieving network connectivity from available data.

Network dynamics as an inverse problem

The dynamics of networks dominate the world around - and in - us. Power grids, transportation systems, neural circuits and gene regulatory networks are just some of the many examples of such networks in action. To understand mechanisms underlying collective network dynamics, typically a forward perspective is taken and mathematical models of given systems are explored as a function of their parameters. We are developing theory for analyzing networks from an inverse perspective with emphasis on network design.
