First and foremost, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to my advisor, Professor Narsingh Deo, for his excellent guidance and encouragement, and also for introducing me to this wonderful science of complex networks. Without his support this dissertation would not have been possible. I would also like to thank the members of my research committee, professors Charles Hughes, Ratan Guha, Mainak Chatterjee and Yue Zhao for their advice and guidance during the entire process. I am indebted to the faculty and the staff of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science for providing me the resources and environment to perform this research. I am grateful to my colleagues in the Parallel and Quantum computing lab for the stimulating discussions and support. I would also like to thank Dr. Hemant Balakrishnan and Dr. Sanjeeb Nanda for their valuable suggestions and guidance. My heartfelt thanks to my parents, Vasudevan and Raji, who have always been supportive of my decisions and encouraged me with their best wishes. I would also like to thank my sister Gomathy, for her words of care and affection during tough times. Special thanks to my friends in Orlando for being there when I needed them
