Abstract

Hypernetworks generalise networks and hypergraphs, allowing relations between many things to be modelled by with richer structure than hypergraph edges. They provide a way of integrating bottom-up and top-down micro, meso and macrolevel dynamics in multilevel systems. They provide a natural way of representing social structures, enabling polices to be tested by computation and big data before they are implemented.
