This is intuitively clear: if one imagines that one separates a given network into two subnetworks A and B, all links between A and B will be lost. This can be a substantial part of the network and clearly induces nonadditivity. 25 26 2 Statistical Mechanics of Complex Networks As mentioned, the degree distributions of complex networks are not of a trivial Poissonian type but very often follow power laws [5] or more complicated forms. It can be shown that there exist entropies that are associated to these degree distributions.

With this knowledge it is in many cases sufficient to reliably characterize a particular network in terms of its structure, robustness, and performance or function. Often networks are not structures that are purposefully designed but that emerge as a consequence of microscopic rules that govern the linking and relinking dynamics of individual nodes. These rules can be very general and cover a huge variety, ranging from purely deterministic to fully statistical ones. One of the milestones in the history of science was the discovery that the laws of thermodynamics could be related to – and based on – a microscopic theory, so-called statistical mechanics.

2) with ei being the number of triangles node i is part of. c(k) is obtained by averaging over all ci with a fixed k. It has been noted that c(k) contains information about hierarchies present in networks [27]. For Erdös–Rényi (ER) networks [1, 2], as well as for pure preferential attachment algorithms without the possibility of rewiring, the clustering coefficient c(k) is constant. The global clustering coefficient is the average over all nodes, C = ci i . A large global clustering coefficient is often indicative of a small-world structure [28].
