On structural properties of scale-free networks with finite size
AbstractSince many large real networks tend to present scale-free degree distribution, this paper investigates the structural properties of scale-free networks with finite size. Beginning with a comprehensive analysis of the degree distribution consisting of the concentration trend, dispersion and inequality, this paper then focuses on the discussion of heterogeneity and hub nodes of scale-free networks. The findings will help to improve our understanding of the structure and function of real networks.
