Generating Random Networks and Graphs

Ton Coolen, Alessia Annibale, and Ekaterina Roberts

Abstract

This book supports researchers who need to generate random networks, or who are interested in the theoretical study of random graphs. The coverage includes exponential random graphs (where the targeted probability of each network appearing in the ensemble is specified), growth algorithms (i.e. preferential attachment and the stub-joining configuration model), special constructions (e.g. geometric graphs and Watts Strogatz models) and graphs on structured spaces (e.g. multiplex networks). The presentation aims to be a complete starting point, including details of both theory and implementation, ... More

Keywords: Graph generation, Random graphs, Statistical mechanics, Algorithms, Graduate, Worked examples, Null model, Unbiased, Exponential random graph models, Topological constraint
