## Science Illustrations updated

We have a special category with science illustations on various topics related to networks and algorithms. Many of these illustrations were developed specifically for the Network Pages. The four posters made for mathematics exhibition IMAGINARY have been added.

## Young mathematicians unite

"The mathematical community needs to strengthen the role and perspective of the young generation of mathematicians in Europe. They should be supported in their mathematical development and their career perspectives.

## A PhD, is that for me?

Are you thinking about your future? Do you want to apply your mathematical knowledge in a company, or continue your education first by pursuing a PhD degree? With this one-day event for students in both theoretical and applied mathematics we aim to showcase the benefits of doing a PhD to help students to make their […]

## We shouldn’t give classroom lectures anymore

In the September issue of the Nieuw Archief voor Wiskunde mathematician Nelly Litvak wrote the first article in her column ‘Better than blackboard’!

## Rescue mission!

## More roads, more traffic? Braess paradox!

The, seemingly innocent and quite natural, idea to build more roads in order to solve the traffic problem can be sometimes quite a bad idea.

## From Tweets to Communication Networks

Network visualizations have the power to display how we communicate with each other in social media. We can simply depict message exchanges using communication networks. In such a network, nodes represent users, and there exists an edge between two nodes when the corresponding users exchange information (an email or a tweet).

## The travelling salesman problem

Suppose you have a delivery service. You have one truck and have to deliver a large number of parcels to different cities in the country every day. Then you run into the following problem: in which order should you visit the cities?

## Summer reads Part 3: Algorithms and the mathematical theory of graphs

In this article, we have collected all the articles concerning algorithms and the mathematical theory of graphs. Enjoy!

## Martijn Gösgens as one of the Faces of Science

Martijn Gösgens, PhD student at the Eindhoven University of Technology and member of NETWORKS, is since March one of the 12 new Faces of Science.
