JUNG (http://jung.sourceforge.net) is what you describe: a Java
library for representing, analyzing, and (if you like) visualizing
networks. It includes some integration with the CERN Colt Java
libraries for numerical methods. Since it's Java, it works on Unix,
Windows, MacOS, and Linux. It has an active user community and a
fair amount of sample code to help you get going.
Hope this helps.
