Networks in chemistry and physics

Like other physical sciences, the depths of physics and chemistry can be plumbed using networks. Some of the earliest approaches to modeling molecular structures were graph based. The physical arrangement of atoms in matter can also be modeled using graphs. Dynamic graphs can be used to explore phenomena such as phase transitions and percolation. This chapter looks at how graphs are used to model and understand processes in physics. Interestingly enough, the patterns that emerge when modeling phase transitions have shown to occur in graph models of other systems. This chapter also looks at chemical graph models and how they enable certain types of chemistry in silica. Graph concepts introduced include percolation, ...
