They combine topological evolution of the network with dynamics in the network nodes. Recently, the dynamics of adaptive networks has been investigated in a number of parallel studies from different fields, ranging from genomics to game theory. Here we review these recent developments and show that they can be viewed from a unique angle. We demonstrate that all these studies are characterized by common themes, most prominently: complex dynamics and robust topological self-organization based on simple local rules. *  Adaptive Coevolutionary Networks -- A Review, Thilo Gross and Bernd Blasius, 2007/09/12, DOI: 0709.1858, arXiv  http://uk.arXiv.org/abs/0709.1858 -------------------------------- Computing: The Wireless Epidemic , Nature Excerpts: As wireless communication technologies spread, so the potential for viruses to exploit them grows. Biological models of virus transmission will assume new relevance for assessing the emerging threat. *  Computing: The Wireless Epidemic, Jon Kleinberg, 07/09/20, DOI: 10.1038/449287a, Nature 449, 287-288  http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v449/n7160/full/449287a.html Barry Wellman _______________________________________________________________________ S.D.
