This book surveys the exciting new field of Networks of Networks, covering General Theory, Phenomenology, Applications and Risk Assessment. The authors show how the general paradigm applies in fields ranging from physiology to financial risk to transportation.

The present work is meant as a reference to provide an organic and comprehensive view of the most relevant results in the exciting new field of Networks of Networks (NetoNets). Seminal papers have recently been published posing the basis to study what happens when different networks interact, thus providing evidence for the emergence of new, unexpected behaviors and vulnerabilities. From those seminal works, the awareness on the importance understanding Networks of Networks (NetoNets) has spread to the entire community of Complexity Science. The reader will benefit from the experience of some of the most well-recognized leaders in this field. The contents have been aggregated under four headings; General Theory, Phenomenology, Applications and Risk Assessment. The reader will be impressed by the different applications of the general paradigm that span from physiology, to financial risk, to transports. We are currently making the first steps to reduce the distance between the language and the way of thinking of the two communities of experts in real infrastructures and the complexity scientists. Although this path may prove to be long, it is extremely promising, both in extending our understanding of complex systems and in finding concrete applications that can enhance the life quality of millions of people.

Gregorio D'Agostino, was born in Messina 1963 and received his Diploma (Baccalaureat) at "Liceo Scientifico Ignitianum" in Messina on 1981 with final votation 60/60. He received his "Laurea" in Physics at Università degli studi di Roma La Sapienza" on 1987 with final votation 110/110 cum laude. He received his "Dottorato di Ricerca in Fisica" (Phd in Physics) at Università degli studi di Roma "La Sapienza" on 1992. He served Italian Nation as an officier in "Genio Militare" from 1988 to 1989. He teached "Probability and Statistics" at "Scuola di specializzazione in fisica Medica" (II Università di Roma "Tor Vergata") for five years. He is staff scientist at Enea since 1989 where he has been working in theoretical and computational Physics. He belongs to the directorate of the Italian Association of Critical Infrastructure Experts (AIIC).
