Part of the Mathematics and Visualization book series (MATHVISUAL)

Abstract

Computer networks are an endless source of problems and motivations for the Graph Drawing and for the Information Visualization research communities. Graphical representation of computer networks at different abstraction levels are interesting for different types of users. To give only some examples (an interesting survey can be found in [10]):

Keywords

  • Dynamic Algorithm
  • Border Gateway Protocol
  • Simple Network Management Protocol
  • Open Short Path First
  • Technical Foundation

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
