Abstract

Networks, graphical representations of a system and the relationships between its parts, is an important area of research that includes a wide-range of topics including social networks, power grids, and networks found in nature such as our brains, systems of rivers, and much more!

Several methods for understanding and comparing underlying structures between networks have been suggested, but none of these methods fully capture the full beauty and complexity of networks in a way that allows for efficient comparison between two dissimilar networks. In this study, we review several existing measures and propose several new ones that may assist us in our quest to understand the connectivity of the world around us.
