8 For every technology, the first ten years is the development, and the second ten years is when the market follows.

9 Science, in general, is a lot better at breaking complex things into tiny parts than it is at figuring out how tiny parts turn into complex things.

27 Many networks have a unique giant component

28 If you have 2 large-components each occupying roughly 1/2 of the graph. How many random edges do you need to add so that the probability that the two components join into one giant component is greater than 0.9? (a) 1-5 edge additions (b) 6-10 edge additions (c) 11-15 edge additions (d) 16-20 edge additions

45 In most real networks, there are small distances between two randomly selected nodes.


47 解决这个问题有两种方法,聪明人的方法和笨人的方法。 聪明人的方法是:照着算法教科书的讲解,实现那个时间复杂 度相当大的名叫嘀嘀哒嘀哒的最短路径算法。 笨人的方法时间复杂度最低:找一堆线头来,按照图的结构连 成一张网,然后一手拿一个顶点,向两边一抻,中间拉直了的 那条路就是最短路径呀。

48 Your clustering coefficient: the probability that two randomly selected friends of U are friends with each other  E i : no. of edges among your k i friends  C i measures network’s local density: the more densely interconnected the neighborhood of node i, the higher is C i.  Network clustering coefficient

49 Many real networks have a much higher clustering coefficient than expected for a completely random network of same no. of nodes and links High-degree nodes tend to have a smaller clustering coefficient than low-degree nodes.

53 P(k) : The probability that the degree of a randomly selected node is k the fraction of nodes in the network with degree k

54 微博:正态分布的前世今生

55 常见概率分布 P(k) 包括超几何 分布、二项分布和泊松分布 一定条件下都可以看作是近似 正态分布 概率分布都近似具有钟形形状


57 Many real networks are scale-free in the sense that the degree distribution deviates significantly from the Poisson distribution

61 High skew (asymmetry) Straight line on a log-log plot


63 Least square regression Some data exhibit a power law only in the tail So need to select a k min (>0) where the power-law starts

64 Least square regression Noise in the tail skews the regression result Will give values of the exponent α that are too low

65 光滑化 相关性

66 but could also be a lognormal or double exponential… Not every network is power law distributed


68 A. Clauset, C.R. Shalizi, and M.E.J. Newman, SIAM Review 51(4), 661-703 (2009) Commonly used methods for analyzing power-law data, such as least-squares fitting, can produce substantially inaccurate estimates of parameters for power-law distributions, and even in cases where such methods return accurate answers they are still unsatisfactory because they give no indication of whether the data obey a power law at all. Here we present a principled statistical framework for discerning and quantifying power-law behavior in empirical data. Our approach combines maximum-likelihood fitting methods with goodness-of-fit tests based on the Kolmogorov–Smirnov (KS) statistic and likelihood ratios. For implementation codes, see:

69 Given p(x), If, for any given constant a, there is a constant g(a) s.t. p(ax) = g(a) p(x) (scale-free), then there are constants C and r s.t. p(x)=C x -r (power-law).
