This chapter considers networks in which links differ from each other. The links are made individual by ascribing a positive number (a weight) to each of them. The chapter explains how these weighted networks represent processes and flows in real-world networks, from various transportation and information nets to social ones. It discusses the worldwide airport network, which is a typical example of a weighted network, and presents a few basic models of these networks.
