Describe, handle and manage interactions between networks.
Many systems are not only networks, but networks of networks, or networks that are linked to other networks (multi-level systems). For example the health system is a collection of a multitude of networks, such as the doctor-patient network, the doctor-labarotory network, the doctor-doctor network, the hospital-doctor network, or the doctor-social insurer network. These networks are not independent of each other but mutually influence their mutual evolution. A quantitative description of such systems – which is the basis for a practical treatment of these data structures – does not exist up to now.
The main purpose of LASAGNE is to develop a mathematical theory of multi-level systems, which allows to describe, handle and manage interactions between networks.
