This chapter discusses and compares the structural properties of a few basic man-made and natural networks. It explains the principal difference between two global networks — the Internet and the World Wide Web — and presents their main characteristics. It describes two levels of the Internet: the Autonomous Systems level and the router level. Among cellular networks, metabolic reaction networks and the networks of interactions between proteins are touched upon. Finally, multi-partite networks of co-occurrence are considered in particular tagged social networks.

Keywords:   Internet, World Wide Web, cellular networks, metabolic reaction networks, protein interaction networks, social networks, scale-free networks, hubs, clustering
