Abstract The main goal of the project was to conduct a comprehensive study of complex networks from the perspectives of security and information protection using an interdisciplinary approach. Specific Objectives were: (1) cascading breakdown of complex networks triggered by attacks and control strategies: (2) security of complex clustered networks and gradient networks: (3) attack- induced oscillations of complex networks and control strategies: (4) security and robustness of wireless sensor networks: (5) optimization of synchronization in complex networks: (6) dynamics-based network scalability; (7) spreading processes on complex networks: (8) searching for universal dynamics on complex networks; and (9) time-series based prediction of hub nodes and network topology. The outcomes of the project include 25 papers published or accepted b refereed journals. One Ph.D. student graduated with a thesis entitled 'Dynamics and Security of Complex Clustered Networked Systems' and received the Palais Outstanding Doctoral Student Award for 2008-2009 from ASU's School of Klectrical. Computer and Energy Engineering. During the project period, the PI gave 11 invited talks on topics derived directly from the AFOSR project. Collaboration started with Dr. Vassilios Kovanis from AFRL at Wright Patterson AFB on complex dynamical systems and compressive sensing.
