Abstract
Many natural and artificial systems have been studied in the last decade by means of the Networks Theory. This theory constitutes a framework for describing the interactions in a complex system from a purely topological point of view, abstracting away the dynamical processes that take such structure as substrate. The empirical analysis of real networks has shown a common, unintuitive and not trivial organization underlying systems of different nature. This complexity observed in natural systems can be explained, at least intuitively, as an effect of evolutionary processes. The time and mechanisms associated to these processes would play an important role in the emergence of complexity; however in artificial systems this does not seem so clear. In spite of that, recently many artificial systems have shown similar distinctive traits observed in natural systems. These results suggest that there may exist universal principles underlying the structure of complex systems irrespective of their origin.
