Design vs Emergence: The structure of knowledge

Graphs have been widely used to represent various types of complex systems. Examples range from straightforward ones such as the router links or hyperlinks from the Internet (also known as Cybergeography) to the highly abstract ones like protein folding networks or network maps of social behavior (for instance on e-Bay or Facebook). It is obvious that representing a complex system as a simple graph is a reduction of information, showing only one aspect of the original system. In most studies only one such aspect is
investigated, using a single, specific characteristic to build the network.
