Dynamic interactions of various network-related protocols induced by the functional partition make the Internet to be complicated systems; details are hardly captured because of large-scale and heterogeneous structure. One of complex behaviors of the Internet is traffic dynamics. For example, flow control and congestion control performed by end host can show short-range and long-range dependence of traffic. The Internet is facing with ever-changing networking technologies and applications, thus understanding and controlling the complex behaviors of the Internet are important for designing future networks.
