Neal Benezra (M.A, art history, ‘78) has headed the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco (SFMOMA) since 2002, managed its recent three-year, $305 million renovation and expansion, and oversaw its Campaign for Art that garnered nearly 3,000 works.
When collective behavior emerges from individuals—be they insect swarms, traffic jams or Internet users—scientists call the resulting system a complex network. With some digging, researchers at UC Davis are discovering basic mathematical principles can help predict behavior in complex networks. The findings could lead to improvements in real-world human networks, including air traffic, the stock market and the U.S. power grid.
