Not All Scale-Free Networks Are Born Equal: The Role of the Seed Graph in PPI Network Evolution


The (asymptotic) degree distributions of the best-known "scale-free" network models are all similar and are independent of the seed graph used; hence, it has been tempting to assume that networks generated by these models are generally similar. In this paper, we observe that several key topological features of such networks depend heavily on the specific… (More)
