Abstract
This paper takes a critical look at the usefulness of power law models of the
Internet. The twin focuses of the paper are Internet traffic and topology
generation. The aim of the paper is twofold. Firstly it summarises the state
of the art in power law modelling particularly giving attention to existing
open research questions. Secondly it provides insight into the failings of such
models and where progress needs to be made for power law research to feed
through to actual improvements in network performance.
Description

The aim of this paper is to provide a summary and a critique of power law modelling in the internet. Long-range dependence and self-similarity are considered as well as scale-free topology analysis.
