Modeling Internet growth is important both for understanding the current network and to predict and improve its future. To date, Internet models have typically attempted to explain a subset of the following characteristics: network structure, traffic flow, geography, and economy. In this paper we present a discrete, agent-based model, that integrates all of them. We show that the model generates networks with topologies, dynamics, and more speculatively spatial distributions that are similar to… 
Policy Challenges in Mapping Internet Interdomain Congestion
TLDR
A topology-aware model of interconnection is introduced to elucidate the author's beliefs about how to measure interconnection links of access providers and how policymakers should interpret the results.
Unusual Evolution of IPv6 Internet Topology
TLDR
After evaluating changes of average degree, average path length and some other metrics over time, it is found that in the case of a large-scale growing the Internet become more robustness; whereas in a link redistribution the Internet becomes more efficient with links largely decreased.
Distributed internet security and measurement
TLDR
This dissertation shows that the Internet's distributed structure can be exploited to increase the security of its protocols, particularly BGP (the Internet's interdomain routing protocol), and introduces Pretty Good BGP, an anomaly detection protocol coupled with an automated response that can protect individual networks from BGP attacks.
Evolution of the Internet AS-level ecosystem
TLDR
The MPA model closes the “measure-model-validate-predict” loop, and provides further evidence that preferential attachment is a driving force behind Internet evolution.
A Survey of Statistical Network Models
TLDR
An overview of the historical development of statistical network modeling is overviewed and a number of examples that have been studied in the network literature are introduced, and a subsequent discussion focuses on anumber of prominent static and dynamic network models and their interconnections.
Analyzing and modeling real-world phenomena with complex networks: a survey of applications
TLDR
A diversity of phenomena are surveyed, which may be classified into no less than 11 areas, providing a clear indication of the impact of the field of complex networks.
