Networks are important in shaping behavior in many social, business, and economic environments. For example, through networks of research and development (R&D) collaborations between firms, new technologies are discovered and diffuse in the industry. Similarly, co-authorship networks in academic research play an indispensable role in the process of scientific discovery and knowledge production. The many aspects that are governed by networks make it critical to understand how they impact behavior, which network structures are likely to emerge, and how they affect welfare in the society.
