TopicGame-Theoretic Models of Social Network Formation
Empirical studies show several laws that social networks do obey and other complex networks, i.e., biological or technological do not. These laws include small diameters ("six degrees of separation"), scale-freeness (power law degree distribution) and high clustering coefficient. To find microscopic foundations to these macroscopic effects is a great and unsolved challenge. In the talk we will survey existing models an discuss how to expand them for better parameters calibration.
