@article{Tsallis2022ComplexNG, title={Complex network growth model: Possible isomorphism between nonextensive statistical mechanics and random geometry.}, author={Constantino Tsallis and Rute Oliveira}, journal={Chaos}, year={2022}, volume={32 5}, pages={ 053126 } }

In the realm of Boltzmann-Gibbs statistical mechanics, there are three well known isomorphic connections with random geometry, namely, (i) the Kasteleyn-Fortuin theorem, which connects the λ → 1 limit of the λ-state Potts ferromagnet with bond percolation, (ii) the isomorphism, which connects the λ → 0 limit of the λ-state Potts ferromagnet with random resistor networks, and (iii) the de Gennes isomorphism, which connects the n → 0 limit of the n-vector ferromagnet with self-avoiding random…

D-dimensional geographically-located networks which grow with preferential attachment involving Euclidean distances through q-statistics are introduced and it is numerically verified that the q-exponential degree distributions exhibit universal dependences on the ratio αA/d.

A simple model based on these two principles was able to reproduce the power-law degree distribution of real networks, indicating a heterogeneous topology in which the majority of the nodes have a small degree, but there is a significant fraction of highly connected nodes that play an important role in the connectivity of the network.

The Boltzmann–Gibbs exponential factor is generically substituted by its q -generalisation, and is recovered in the $$q=1$$ q = 1 limit when the nonlocal effects fade away.

### A generalised model for asymptotically-scale-free geographical networks

- Computer Science
- 2019

The present generalised model is asymptotically scale-free in all cases, and its degree distribution is very well fitted with q-exponential distributions, which optimizes the nonadditive entropy Sq, given by , with depending uniquely only on the ratio and the fitness distribution.

A model based on these two ingredients reproduces the observed stationary scale-free distributions, which indicates that the development of large networks is governed by robust self-organizing phenomena that go beyond the particulars of the individual systems.
