Realistic Control of Network Dynamics,

Nature Communications 4, 1942 (2013)
Summary: Nonlinearity is a hallmark of complex systems, but has generally been regarded as an obstacle to controlling their behavior. Here Cornelius et al. show how nonlinear dynamics can be harnessed to control a network and drive it to desired states. The new approach can be used to identify control interventions in a range of large complex networks, from cells to power grids.
