Networks can be used to model many types of relations and processes in
physical, biological, social and information systems. Many practical
problems can be represented by networks, also called graphs. This tutorial
will first go over the basic building blocks of graphs (nodes, edges,
paths, etc) and common methods to get data structures into
NetworkX-compatible format. Then, we can solve common problems like
shortest-path on a real graph, and less common ones, like implementing
PageRank on a directed network to get PageRank of each node in the network.
