A home network is a residential local area network. With the increasing availability of broadband Internet service and affordable PCs, more people are networking their multiple PCs and network-capable devices to use a single broadband outlet, usually through a cable or DSL provider. ...more on Wikipedia about "Home network"
Within most client-server architectures, a horizon of connectivity is the boundary that limits access to server-based resources when the client is disconnected from the network. Client-server applications such as desktop email clients, which provide offline functionality (typically only a subset of that possible while connected), may be referred to as operating beyond the connectivity horizon. Such clients work by queuing changes made locally for synchronization with a server at a later time. Certain peer-to-peer applications may also be considered to function beyond the horizon of connectivity, in that they queue changes for later synchronization with other peers. ...more on Wikipedia about "Horizon of connectivity"
The Internet, or simply the Net, is the publicly accessible worldwide system of interconnected computer networks that transmit data by packet switching using a standardized Internet Protocol (IP). It is made up of thousands of smaller commercial, academic, domestic, and government networks. It carries various information and services, such as electronic mail, online chat, and the interlinked Web pages and other documents of the World Wide Web. ...more on Wikipedia about "Internet"

Network analysis is the analysis of networks through network theory (or more generally graph theory). ...more on Wikipedia about "Network analysis"
A network automaton (plural network automata) is a mathematical system consisting of a network of nodes that evolves over time according to predetermined rules. It is similar in concept to a cellular automaton, but much less studied. ...more on Wikipedia about "Network automaton"
The network effect causes a good or service to have a value to a potential customer dependent on the number of customers already owning that good or using that service. Metcalfe's law states that the total value of a good or service that possesses a network effect is roughly proportional to the square of the number of customers already owning that good or using that service. ...more on Wikipedia about "Network effect"
The network model is a database model conceived as flexible way of representing objects and their relationships. Its original inventor was Charles Bachman, and it was developed into a standard specification published in 1969 by the CODASYL Consortium. Where the hierarchical model structures data as a tree of records, with each record having one parent record and many children, the network model allows each record to have multiple parent and child records, forming a lattice structure. ...more on Wikipedia about "Network model"

Network theory is a branch of applied mathematics and physics, with the same general subject matter as graph theory. Network theory concerns itself with the study of graphs as a representation of either symmetric relations or, more generally, of a assymetric relations between discrete objects. Typically, the graphs of concern in network theory are complex networks, examples of which include the World Wide Web, the Internet, gene regulatory networks, metabolic networks, social networks, epistemological networks, etc. See list of network theory topics for the scope of the area. ...more on Wikipedia about "Network theory"
Network traffic simulation is a process used in telecommunications engineering to measure the efficiency of a communications network. ...more on Wikipedia about "Network traffic simulation"
In a centralized database system, the only available resource that needs to be shielded from the user is the data, (that is, the storage system). In a distributed DBMS, there is a second resource that needs to be managed in much the same manner — the network. Preferably, the user should be protected from the network operational details. Then there would be no difference between database applications that would run on the centralized database and those that would run on a distributed one. This kind of transparency is referred to as network transparency or distribution transparency. From a DBMS perspective, distribution transparency requires that users do not have to specify where data is located. ...more on Wikipedia about "Network transparency"
A neural network is an interconnected group of biological neurons. In modern usage the term can also refer to artificial neural networks, which are constituted of artificial neurons. Thus the term 'Neural Network' specifies two distinct concepts: ...more on Wikipedia about "Neural network"
An overlay network is a computer network which is built on top of another network. Nodes in the overlay can be thought of as being connected by virtual or logical links, each of which corresponds to a path, perhaps through many physical links, in the underlying network. For example, many peer-to-peer networks are overlay networks because they run on top of the Internet. Dial-up Internet is an overlay upon the telephone network. ...more on Wikipedia about "Overlay network"
A Process Control Network (PCN) is a communications network that is used to transmit instructions and data between control and measurement units and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition ( SCADA) equipment.These networks have, over the years, used many of the technologies and topologies utilised in other network applications. However, Process Control Networks (PCNs)have several special requirements that must be met in order for the solution to be acceptable to the industry. These requirements are, in no particular order: Robustness, Determinacy, Compatibility. Robustness includes requirements such as connection redundancy, reduced sensitivity to Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), and good error checking and correction. Determinacy involves assuring that each device is guaranteed access to the network, and in many cases mechanisms to allow priority information (such as alarms) through the system. Compatibility allows SCADA and Distributed Control Systems (DCS) from various manufacturers to communicate with control and measurement equipment from others. ...more on Wikipedia about "Process control network"
Radial basis functions are a means for interpolation in a stream of data. They differ from statistical approaches in that approximations must be performed on streams of data rather than on complete data sets. They are used in time-series prediction, control, and function approximation. ...more on Wikipedia about "Radial basis function"
Reed's law is the assertion of David P. Reed that the utility of large networks, particularly social networks, can scale exponentially with the size of the network. ...more on Wikipedia about "Reed's law"
A sensor network is a computer network of many, spatially distributed devices using sensors to monitor conditions at different locations, such as temperature, sound, vibration, pressure, motion or pollutants. Usually these devices are small and inexpensive, so that they can be produced and deployed in large numbers, and so their resources in terms of energy, memory, computational speed and bandwidth are severely constrained. Each device is equipped with a radio transceiver, a small microcontroller, and an energy source, usually a battery. The devices use each other to transport data to a monitoring computer. ...more on Wikipedia about "Sensor network"
The Sensor Web is a new class of geographic information system (GIS) developed at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory consisting of a sensor network for environmental monitoring and control. Each sensor platform in the Sensor Web is called a pod in addition to the more familiar phrase node which can be orbital or terrestrial, fixed or mobile with real time accessibility via the internet. Information flow is omni-directional and bi-directional where each pod sends out collected data to every other pod in the network. Unlike most other networks that are based on TCP/IP, the Sensor Web is both synchronous and routerless in its operation. This synchronous, internal communication among the pods allows the Sensor Web as a whole to autonomously react and adapt to a dynamic environment. ...more on Wikipedia about "Sensor Web"
A sexual network is a social network that is defined by the sexual relationships between a set of individuals. ...more on Wikipedia about "Sexual network"
In mathematics and physics, a small-world network is a class of random graphs where most nodes are also neighbors of one another, but every node can be reached from every other by a small number of hops or steps. A small world network, where nodes represent people and edges connect people that know each other, captures the small world phenomenon of strangers being linked by a mutual acquaintance. ...more on Wikipedia about "Small-world network"
