Physica A-statistical Mechanics and Its Applications

The concept of network efficiency, recently proposed to characterize the properties of small-world networks, is here used to study the effects of errors and attacks on scale-free networks. Two different kinds of scale-free networks, i.e., networks with power law P(k), are considered: (1) scale-free networks with no local clustering produced by the Barabasi–Albert model and (2) scale-free networks with high clustering properties as in the model by Klemm and Eguiluz, and their properties are… CONTINUE READING
