The distribution of the relative arc density of a family of interval catch digraph based on uniform data

  • Elvan Ceyhan


Registered author(s):

    We study a family of interval catch digraph called proportional-edge proximity catch digraph (PCD) which is also a special type of intersection digraphs parameterized with an expansion and a centrality parameter. PCDs are random catch digraphs that have been developed recently and have applications in classification and spatial pattern analysis. We investigate a graph invariant of the PCDs called relative arc density. We demonstrate that relative arc density of PCDs is a U-statistic and using the central limit theory of U-statistics, we derive the (asymptotic) distribution of the relative arc density of proportional-edge PCD for uniform data in one dimension. We also determine the parameters for which the rate of convergence to asymptotic normality is fastest. Copyright Springer-Verlag 2012
