    The opportunistic network is an emerging and recent area of research. To make this research area more adaptable for practical and industrial use, there is a need to further investigate several research challenges in all aspects of opportunistic networks. Therefore, Opportunistic Networks: Fundamentals, Applications and Emerging Trends provides theoretical, algorithmic, simulation, and implementation-based research developments related to fundamentals, applications, and emerging research trends in opportunistic networks.

    The book follows a theoretical approach to describe fundamentals to beginners and incorporates a practical approach depicting the implementation of real-life applications to intermediate and advanced readers. This book is beneficial for academicians, researchers, developers, and engineers who work in or are interested in the fields related to opportunistic networks, delay tolerant networks, and intermittently connected ad hoc networks. This book also serves as a reference book for graduate and postgraduate courses in computer science, computer engineering, and information technology streams.
