Complex Networks: Structures and Dynamics

Real world social, biological, and technological networks have complex structures. They grow and rewire themselves over time, while maintaining topologies that enable them to be resilient to failure and highly interconnected. These features are not found in randomly generated graphs. Researchers are attempting to explain how these complex networks form. Understanding the structures of complex networks allows us to understand how to look for resilient and interconnected networks Understanding their dynamics would enable designing systems to grow complex networks Describing Network Structure Graph theory is the mathematical study of networks, also called graphs.

Understanding Networks: IOT Device Design

I’m working with Jackie Liu for an IOT assignment. Our first assignment is to design a web api and a physical interface for the an app. Another working pair will implement our idea. Our idea is for a digital pet. application web api physical avatar web client App The application simulates a pet. The pet has a state with several attributes. Hunger satisfaction: how satisfied is the pet’s hunger?

Understanding Networks: Firewall

For this assignment, we… setup a server with a public IP address closed most of the ports with UFW waiting for the UFW logs to fill up I left my server up for about a month and logged about 88k requests. Traffic Spike There is a noticeable spike on Oct 24 and 25. The additional traffic came in from two different countries, China and France. While the two country’s traffic spikes came about the same time, they were very different in quality.
