The goal of the present paper is to describe three topics in the area of complex networks that constituted a mini-course delivered at the 12th Mathematical Society of Japan – Seasonal Institute, held at Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan, 31/07–09/08, 2019. The topics are: (I) Spectra of adjacency matrices, (II) Equivalence of ensembles, (III) Exploration and mixing times. Topics (I) and (II) are part of the ongoing attempt to understand structure of networks, topic (III) to elucidate functionality of networks.
