In this concluding section of the text, the three major milestones marking the history of the exploration of networks are indicated. These are: Leonhard Euler's work (1735), the introduction of random graphs (1950s), and the launch of the large-scale study of complex networks (the end of the 1990s). A list of a few particularly hot and prospective topics in complex networks is presented.
