We review modeling attempts for the paradigmatic contact process (or SIS model) on adaptive networks. Elaborating on one particular proposed mechanism of topology change (rewiring) and its mean field analysis, we obtain a coarse-grained view of coevolving network topology in the stationary active phase of the system. Introducing an alternative framework applicable to a wide class of adaptive networks, active stationary states are detected, and an extended description of the resulting steady-state statistics is given for three different rewiring schemes. We find that slight modifications of the standard rewiring rule can result in either minuscule or drastic change of steady-state network topologies.
