Analytic solution of a static scale-free network model
Rights accessOpen Access
We present a detailed analytical study of a paradigmatic scale-free network model, the Static Model. Analytical expressions for its main properties are derived by using the hidden variables formalism. We map the model into a canonic hidden variables one, and solve the latter. The good agreement between our predictions and extensive simulations of the original model suggests that the mapping is exact in the infinite network size limit. One of the most remarkable findings of this study is the presence of relevant disassortative correlations, which are induced by the physical condition of absence of self and multiple connections.
