Many real-world phenomena can be modelled using networks. Often, these networks interact with one another in non-trivial ways. Recently, a theory of interdependent networks has been developed which describes dependency between nodes across networks. Interdependent networks have a number of unique properties which are absent in single networks. In particular, systems of interdependent networks often undergo abrupt first-order percolation transitions induced by cascading failures. Here we present an overview of recent developments and significant findings regarding interdependent networks and networks of networks.
