It is well known that there are a large number of complex networks that have vertex-degree distributions in a power-law form of ck−γ, where k is the degree variable and c and γ are scaling and exponent constants. Recently, we found that it is effective to reveal the underlying mechanism of power-law formation in real-world networks by analyzing their vertex… CONTINUE READING
