Small world networks with a distance-dependent connection probability
Author(s): C. Tang ,Y. Tang ,J.X. Zhong

Subject(s): CX.1



We present a network model, in which the connection probability of two nodes depends on the physical distance between them. In this model, the typical small-world features demonstrated by the WS model occur. The edge length distribution is shown to be in a power law form, which is different from that derived from the rewiring mechanism of the WS model. We believe that the present network model provides a transparent picture for the physical origin of small world behaviors of some realistic networks.
