Summary "The widespread availability of mobile devices coupled with recent advancements in networking capabilities make opportunistic networks one of the most promising technologies for nextgeneration mobile applications. This book covers recent developments in the theoretical and algorithmic aspects of opportunistic mobile social networks. It presents a new perspective of Mobile Social Networks, the opportunistic MSNs, which aim to enhance spontaneous interaction/communication among people that opportunistically encounter each other, without infrastructure support" Provided by publisher.
