Fractal-small-world dichotomy in real-world networks.


We draw attention to a clear dichotomy between small-world networks exhibiting exponential neighborhood growth, and fractal-like networks, where neighborhoods grow according to a power law. This distinction is observed in a number of real-world networks, and is related to the degree correlations and geographical constraints. We conclude by pointing out that… (More)
