Michel Mandjes guest editor for 'Nieuw Archief voor Wiskunde'
The September 2015 edition of 'Nieuw Archief voor Wiskunde' with the theme of 'Netwerken' (Networks) was realized by guest editors Michel Mandjes (UvA and project leader of the NETWORKS programme) and Johan van Leeuwaarden (TU/e and member of the NETWORKS project team).
This edition is dedicated to the NETWORKS programme which started in the summer of 2014 and covers a broad range of topics dealing with stochastic and algorithmic aspects of networks.
The aim of the programme is to address the pressing challenges posed by large-scale networks with the help of stochastics and algorithmics. The focus is on modelling, understanding, controlling and optimizing networks that are complex and highly volatile.
