Abstract The last decade witnessed a great development of the structural and dynamic study of complex systems described as a network of elements. Therefore, systems can be described as a set of, possibly, heterogeneous entities or agents (the network nodes) interacting in, possibly, different ways (defining the network edges). In this context, it is of practical interest to model and handle not only static and homogeneous networks but also dynamic, heterogeneous ones. Depending on the size and type of... Title of program: APINetworks 1.0 Catalogue Id: AEWZ_v1_0 Nature of problem The computational modelling and handling of complex systems, described as a network of interacting elements, is nowadays a topic of paramount importance. In the general case, it is necessary to represent static or dynamic, time dependent, sets of heterogeneous entities related through heterogeneous interactions. In turn, and depending on the size and nature of the problem, different computational approaches may be required. Thus, we can resort to sequential, parallel or distributed systems and t ...
