Abstract

Driven by a range of modern applications that includes telecommunications, e-business and online social interaction, recent ideas in complex networks can be extended to the case of time-varying connectivity. Here, we propose a general framework for modelling and simulating such dynamic networks, and we explain how the long-time behaviour may reveal important information about the mechanisms underlying the evolution.
