Tremendous advances have been made in our understanding of the properties and evolution of complex networks. These advances were initially driven by information-poor empirical networks and theoretical analysis of unweighted and undirected graphs. Recently, information-rich empirical data complex networks supported the development of more sophisticated models that include edge directionality and weight properties, and multiple layers. Many studies still focus on unweighted undirected description…

It is shown that there is a rich variety of structure in the authors' datasets but datasets from the same system types have consistent patterns of higher-order structure, and it is found that tie strength and edge density are competing positive indicators ofhigher-order organization.

A new model is proposed that explains the behavior of the world-wide airport network in terms of the geo-political constraints that affect the growth of the airport network and hypothesizes that in other infrastructures, critical locations might not coincide with highly-connected hubs.
