Atlantic Graph Theory Seminar: Dr Erin Meger (Université du Québec à Montréal)
December 9, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
The Iterated Local Model for Social Networks
Complex networks are said to exhibit four key properties: large scale, evolving over time, small world properties, and power law degree distribution. The Preferential Attachment Model (Barab´asi–Albert, 1999) and the ACL Preferential Attachment Model (Aiello, Chung, Lu, 2001) for random networks, evolve over time and rely on the structure of the graph at the previous time step. Further models of complex networks include: the Iterated Local Transitivity Model (Bonato, Hadi, Horn, Pralat, Wang, 2011) and the Iterated Local Anti-Transitivity Model (Bonato, Infeld, Pokhrel, Pralat, 2017). In this talk, we will define and discuss the Iterated Local Model. This is a generalization of the ILT and ILAT models, where at each time step edges are added deterministically according to the structure of the graph at the previous time step.
The Atlantic Graph Theory Seminar series will take place every Wednesday from 3:30-4:30 ADT online via zoom. The talks, provided by researchers, postdocs and graduate students, will be on a variety of current topics in graph theory. If you would like to give a talk or attend, please email one of the organizers (Jason Brown and Danielle Cox).
