For the social sciences use of network theory, see Social network.

Network theory is a branch of applied mathematics and physics, with the same general subject matter as graph theory. Network theory concerns itself with the study of graphs as a representation of either symmetric relations or, more generally, of a asymmetric relations between discrete objects. Typically, the graphs of concern in network theory are complex networks, examples of which include the World Wide Web, the Internet, gene regulatory networks, metabolic networks, social networks, epistemological networks, etc. See list of network theory topics for the scope of the area.
