We analyze graphs in which each vertex is assigned random coordinates in a geometric space of arbitrary dimensionality and only edges between adjacent points are present. The critical connectivity is found numerically by examining the size of the largest cluster. We derive an analytical expression for the cluster coefficient, which shows that the graphs are distinctly different from standard random graphs, even for infinite dimensionality. Insights relevant for graph bipartitioning are included…

A class of growing geometric random graphs that are invariant under rescaling of space and time are introduced and analysis reveals a dichotomy between scale-free and Poisson distributions of in- and out-degree.

The percolation concentration for identical ellipses with aspect ratio b/a in a two-dimensional plane where both the centers and orientations are random is computed and an interpolation formula appears superior to all these effective-medium theories.

This paper considers some particular instances of small world models, and rigorously investigates the distribution of their inter‐point network distances, framed in terms of approximations, whose accuracy increases with the size of the network.

Scaling and percolation in the small-world network model.

- 1999

There is one nontrivial length-scale in the small-world network model of Watts and Strogatz, analogous to the correlation length in other systems, which is well-defined in the limit of infinite system size and which diverges continuously as the randomness in the network tends to zero, giving a normal critical point in this limit.

Statistical mechanics of complex networks

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.
