When Everything Looks Like a Nail: Graph Models of the Internet
The general appeal of abstracting real-world networks to simple graphs is understandable and has been partly responsible for fueling the new field of "network science". However, as the Internet application has demonstrated, such abstractions that ignore much of what engineers consider as critical come at a price. For example, they can lead to the study of graph models that have little in common with the real-world networks that motivated these models in the first place. In turn, they tend to foc

10. Quantitative Aspects
Global Problems of Population Growth (MCDB 150) Census data is often politically influenced and hence inaccurate. The birthrate in developing countries is nearly twice that in developed countries. Most humans live in less developed countries, so the world birthrate is near the higher number. The world birthrate is two and a half times the death rate; we are not close to population stabilization. Almost everywhere, the death rate has been drastically reduced; further changes will not massively a
