We propose a new node centrality measure in networks, the lobby index, which is inspired by Hirsch's h-index. It is shown that in scale-free networks with exponent α the distribution of the l-index has power tail with exponent α (α + 1). Properties of the l-index and extensions are discussed. Efficient communication means high impact (wide access or high… (More)
Hirsch-type indices are devised for characterizing networks and network elements. Their actual use is demonstrated on scientometric examples, and the potential value of the concept on a practically unlimited range of networks is suggested.

Internet-Drafts are working documents of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), its areas, and its working groups. Note that other groups may also distribute working documents as Internet-Drafts. Internet-Drafts are draft documents valid for a maximum of six months and may be updated, replaced, or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is… (More)
