  • We propose a model of the evolution of the networks of scientific citations. The model takes an out-degree distribution (distribution of number of citations) and two parameters as input. The parameters capture the two main ingredients of the model: the aging of the relevance of papers and the formation of triangles when new papers cite old. We compare our model to three network structural quantities of an empirical citation network. We find that unique point in parameter space optimizing the… CONTINUE READING
