Data Science for Massive Networks
In this chapter we attempt to briefly describe a history of massive networks, their place in modern life, and discuss open problems related to them. We start with giving a historical overview indicating the most influential milestones in the development of networks. Then we consider how real-life massive datasets can be represented in terms of networks describing some examples and summarizing properties of such networks. We also discuss cases of modeling real-life massive networks. In addition, we give some examples of how to optimize in massive networks and in which areas we can apply these techniques. We conclude by discussing open problems of massive networks.
