The science of networks represented a substantial change in the way we see natural and technological phenomena. Now we have a better understanding that networks are, in most cases, networks of networks or multi-layered networks. This book provides a summary of the research done during one of the largest and multidisciplinary projects in network science and complex systems (Multiplex). The science of complex networks originated from the empirical evidence that most of the structures of systems such as the internet, sets of protein interactions, and collaboration between people, share (at least qualitatively) common structural properties. Interestingly, the properties of networks that interact with other networks can change dramatically. More precisely, dependent on the properties of links that interconnect two or more networks we may derive different conclusions about the function and the possible vulnerabilities of the overall system of networks.
