The Cxnet Complex Network Analyser Software

2013 Acta Polytechnica Hungarica  
The study of complex networks has become important in several fields of science such as biology, sociology and physics. The collection of network data and the storage, analysis and visualisation of these data have become important contributors to the knowledge of programmers working in these fields. Our cxnet software connects several software packages of the Python language to make these tasks easier. One of the main goals of this development is to provide a comfortable application programming

This network is a directed network with several types of vertices and connections. It changes quite fast and can be created easily. These properties make it an ideal object of investigation. The present paper describes some useful measures of the properties of the complex networks, the usage of the cxnet package with some examples, and our experiences in the education.
