Introduction to Network Analysis

I need to come up to speed on Network Analysis features.  While the core documentation and samples are great, I'm missing the base knowledge to help me digest this topic.  Terms, definitions, etc. like node, edge, leaf etc.  I'm looking for a good white paper to help me understand the concepts well so the samples make a little more sense.

I don't see any white papers or anything like that on the site.  Can anyone help with that?

For terms, definitions etc. you might want to have a look at .
