Topology Project

The exponential growth of the number of Internet hosts has been well documented in the trade press. The research community, however, has not seen many systematic empirical studies of how the Internet topology evolves over time and in space. Most recently, the authors of [FFF99] report on several power-law relationships observed on Autonomous Systems' (AS) connectivity degree, degree frequencies, and the neighborhood size within any given hop count from an AS. This pioneering work represents a first important step toward a better understanding of the dynamic nature of Internet topology, a topic we explore further in this project.
