Electric power has become an essential part of daily life: we plug our electronic devices in, switch our lights on, and expect to have power. As the availability of power is usually taken for granted in modern societies, we mostly feel annoyed at its absence and perceive the importance of power during outages which have severe effects on the...

This thesis is a contribution to a deeper understanding of how information propagates and what this process entails. At its very core is the concept of the network: a collection of nodes and links, which describes the structure of the systems under investigation. The network is a mathematical model which allows to focus on a very fundamental...

Over the last two decades the field of network science has been evolving fast. Many useful applications in a wide variety of disciplines have been found. The application of network science to the brain initiated the interdisciplinary field of complex brain networks. On a macroscopic level, brain regions are taken as nodes in a network. The...

In the past century, numerous iterations of automation have changed our society significantly. In that perspective, the professional and personal availability of computing devices interconnected through the Internet has changed the way we eat, live and treat each other. Today, the Internet is a service as crucial to our society as public access...

Failures of networks, such as power outages in power systems, congestions in
transportation networks, paralyse our daily life and introduce a tremendous cascading effect on our society. Networks should be constructed and operated in a robust way against random failures or deliberate attacks.
We study how to add a single link into an...

Optical networks facilitate the configurations of high-speed network connections with tremendous bandwidth between the optical switches. Optical switches are interconnected by optical fibers that act as the mediums in which data are transferred using lightpaths. Due to the importance of optical networks to many societal needs, e.g., the Internet...

In most types of networks (e.g., optical or transportation networks), finding one or more best paths from a source to a destination, is one of the biggest concerns of network users and providers. This process is known as routing. The routing problems differ accordingly depending on different application scenarios with their respective routing...

Local interactions on a graph will lead to global dynamic behaviour. In this thesis we focus on two types of dynamic processes on graphs: the Susceptible-Infected-Susceptilbe (SIS) virus spreading model, and gossip style epidemic algorithms. The largest part of this thesis is devoted to the SIS model. We first introduce the SIS model in chapter...

This thesis presents methods and techniques to analyze content propagation within online social networks (OSNs) using a graph theoretical approach. Important factors and different techniques to analyze and describe content propagation, starting from the smallest entity in a network, representing a user-account, up to complete friendship graphs...

Optical networks employing Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology allow the multiplexing of several independent wavelength channels into a fiber. Since each wavelength channel operates independently at several Gb/s, WDM optical networks offer a tremendous transport capacity (which is in the order of several Tb/s), which makes them...

Although being a young technology, peer-to-peer (P2P) networking has spurred dramatic evolution on the Internet over the recent twenty years. Unlike traditional server-client mode, P2P networking applications are user-centric. Users (peers) generate their own content and share it with others across the Internet. Be it a P2P file-sharing network,...

Epidemic theory has wide range of applications in computer networks, from spreading of malware to the information dissemination algorithms. Our society depends more strongly than ever on such computer networks. Many of these networks rely to a large extent on decentralization and self-organization. While decentralization removes obvious...

During the past two decades the Internet has been widely deployed and integrated into the society, radically altering the way people communicate and exchange information. Although the Internet was intended as a research network between few a institutions in the United States, it has grown to take a central role in day-to-day communications and...

This thesis focuses on the topological characterization of complex networks. It specifically focuses on those elementary graph measures that are of interest when quantifying topology-related aspects of the robustness of complex networks. This thesis makes the following contributions to the field of complex networks. Firstly, the thesis analyses...

Wireless mobile ad-hoc networks are formed by mobile devices that set up a possibly short-lived network for communication needs of the moment. Ad-hoc networks are decentralized, self-organizing networks capable of forming a communication network without relying on any fixed infrastructure. Each node in an ad-hoc network is equipped with a radio...
