A foundational issue underlying many overlay network applications ranging from routing to peer-to-peer file sharing is that of the network formation, i.e., folding new arrivals into an existing overlay and rewiring to cope with changing network conditions. A typical overlay network for routing or content sharing, each node must select a fixed number of immediate overlay neighbors for routing traffic or content queries. A selfish node entering such a network would select neighbors so as to minimize the weighted sum of expected access costs to all its destinations. Connectivity management is called upon when having to wire a newcomer into the existing mesh of nodes (bootstrapping), or when having to rewire the links between overlay nodes to deal with churn and changing network conditions.
