# Complexity and Complex Networks

Understand the concept of complexity and the applications of complex networks.

We’re now going to dive into the concept of complex networks and complexity, and how they’re different from the simple random graph models.

## The limitations of the random graph model

A **complex network** is a graph that models a complex system and contains topological characteristics and structures that we can’t find in classical random graphs.
