## Statistical properties of the quantum internet

Steady technological advances are paving the way for the implementation of the quantum internet, a network of locations interconnected by quantum channels. In this talk I will describe a model to simulate a quantum internet based on optical fibers and employ network-theory techniques to characterize the statistical properties of the photonic networks it generates. This model predicts (i) a phase transition between a disconnected and a highly-connected phase, (ii) that the typical photonic networks do not present the small world property, but that (iii) they are highly aggregated.
