Network science studies the links among diverse fields of sciences such as engineered, information and biological networks.
From a simple peer-to-peer network to large, high-end networks like the World Wide Web, the common purpose of all network structures is to share network resources or information like files, folder, printers, scanners, etc. The core feature of network sciences is to design common principles, algorithms and tools that can govern these network activities.
The services and application of networking science or Internet science are practically unlimited. Network sciences often help to gather, store and analyze large data sets and assist in focusing on the pattern of interactions between multiple study disciplines. This endeavor is further applied to examine the pattern of data sets for more diverse activities like biological experiments, online trading information, telecommunication and surveillance technologies.
Some of the fundamental aspects covered by the study of network sciences include:
