We present analytical results for the distribution of first-passage (FP) times of random walks (RWs) on random regular graphs that consist of N nodes of degree c ⩾ 3. Starting from a random initial node at time t = 0, at each time step t ⩾ 1 an RW hops into a random neighbor of its previous node. In some of the time steps the RW may hop into a yet-unvisited node while in other time steps it may revisit a node that has already been visited before. We calculate the distribution P(T FP = t) of…

It is shown that for a broad class of graphs, which includes trees, LE coarse-graining preserves the MFPTs between certain nodes, upon making a suitable choice of the coarse-Grained states (or clusters), and it is proved that this relation is exact for graphs that can be coarse- grained into a one-dimensional lattice where each cluster connects to the lattice only through a single node of the original graph.

An effective medium approximation is developed that predicts that the mean first-passage time between pairs of nodes, as well as all moments of this first- passage time, are insensitive to the fraction p of occupied links.

It is shown that the range of validity of the analytical results covers networks that have short relaxation time and high mean degree, which turn out to be valid to many real networks.

It is demonstrated that in some cases random graphs with appropriate distributions of vertex degree predict with surprising accuracy the behavior of the real world, while in others there is a measurable discrepancy between theory and reality, perhaps indicating the presence of additional social structure in the network that is not captured by the random graph.
