Computer science, networks: what is a Peer-to-peer (P2P) network?

More self-tutoring about computer networks: the tutor shares the definition of peer-to-peer network.

Peer-to-Peer (P2P) network:

A network in which any computer is directly connected to any other, rather than through a server. The premise of P2P seems to be that the members are physically connected by wire.

The arrangement could be two computers connected, for example, by USB. It could also be a larger set of computers all connected along one main rail.
