Growing random networks with fitness
Three models of growing random networks with fitness-dependent growth rates are analysed using the rate equations for the distribution of their connectivities. In the first model (A), a network is built by connecting incoming nodes to nodes of connectivity k and random additive fitness η, with rate (k−1)+η. For η>0 we find the connectivity distribution is power law with exponent γ=〈η〉+2. In the second model (B), the network is built by connecting nodes to nodes of connectivity k, random additive fitness η and random multiplicative fitness ζ with rate ζ(k−1)+η. This model also has a power law connectivity distribution, but with an exponent which depends on the multiplicative fitness at each node. In the third model (C), a directed graph is considered and is built by the addition of nodes and the creation of links. A node with fitness (α,β), i incoming links and j outgoing links gains a new incoming link with rate α(i+1), and a new outgoing link with rate β(j+1). The distributions of the number of incoming and outgoing links both scale as power laws, with inverse logarithmic corrections.
