A discussion of some of the most important and fundamental algorithms for performing network calculations on a computer

This chapter looks at the algorithms used to perform network calculations. It starts with some simple algorithms for calculating quantities such as degrees, degree distributions, and clustering before moving on to more sophisticated algorithms for shortest paths, betweenness, maximum flows, and other non-local quantities. Exercises are provided at the end of the chapter.
