The effects of spatial constraints on the evolution of weighted complex networks

  title={The effects of spatial constraints on the evolution of weighted complex networks},

Motivated by the empirical analysis of the air transportation system, we define a network model that includes geographical attributes along with topological and weight (traffic) properties. The introduction of geographical attributes is made by constraining the network in real space. Interestingly, the inclusion of geometrical features induces non-trivial correlations between the weights, the connectivity pattern and the actual spatial distances of vertices. The model also recovers the… CONTINUE READING
