Network models are ubiquitous for depicting the structure of interactions and preferences in various social and economic settings. They can succinctly represent interactions among friends and colleagues in social settings, economic and financial linkages among firms and businesses, adoption of new products via word-of-mouth, and the spread of epidemics. Their prevalence has led to extensive cross-disciplinary research in recent years, combining expertise from operations research, economics, marketing, and computer science.
