Priority Weighted Fitness Model in Networks
Systems as diverse as genetic networks or the World Wide Web are best described as networks with complex topology. A common property of many large networks is that the vertex connectivities follow a power-law distribution. This feature was found to be a consequence of three generic mechanisms: (i) networks expand continuously by the addition of new vertices, (ii) new vertex with priority selected different edges of weighted selected that connected to different vertices in the system, and (iii) by the fitness probability that a new vertices attach preferentially to sites that are already well connected. A model based on these ingredients reproduces the observed stationary scale-free distributions, which indicates that the development of large networks is governed by robust self-organizing phenomena. Experiment results show that the model is more close to the actual Internet network.
