How do epidemics spread, birds flock, and stock markets operate? Answers to these and many other such questions fall within the realm of mathematics. From natural entities such as living cells, insect colonies, and whole ecosystems to man-made inventions like power grids, transportation networks, and the World Wide Web, one sees complex systems everywhere. Deciphering the mathematics behind such systems can unravel well-structured networks and discernible patterns in natural and artificial structures. That is the idea behind Mathematics Awareness Month this April.
