Why "graph streams" ? What is a "dynamic graph" ?

As GraphStream can handle graph evolution, graphs are defined as a “flow of graph events”, instead of only a set of nodes, edges and eventually sets of values associated to node and edges.

Events tells when a node, edge or associated value appears, changes and disappears. Therefore a graph is not described as a static, fixed, representation, but by the whole evolving history of graph elements.
