Twenty years after the birth of the World Wide Web, Web Science has been becoming a new study field in Computer Science. This course introduces fundamental concepts (web centralities & algorithms, network models and web engineering principles) of Web Science. We then give an overview on regular and random network models, influence, economic, and biological networks. In the following we study dynamic processes on complex networks (emergence, percolation, epidemics, synchrony, walking and searching, net gain and repeated games). In the engineering part we dig into emerging cloud & grid computing approaches like GoogleApp, Google Wave (XMPP) and Bittorrent. With the knowledge gained in the preceding chapter we can analyse and engineer advanced web applications like the Wikipedia, personal learning environments and massive 3D multimedia environments.
