On this page: Introduction to Networks For any graph G, let R denote the ratio of its size (number of edges) to its order (number of vertices), and let M denote the size of its largest component. Batten notes that the plot of M against R for a sequence of random graphs G_0, G_1, G_2,... with steadily increasing R values reveals that the random graphs undergo a phase transition as R passes through the critical value R=0.50. Specifically, as depicted in Figure 3.6 (p. 103), the random graphs transit from being "nearly unconnected" to "nearly connected" at the critical value R=0.50, in the sense that the value of M undergoes a sudden dramatic increase. M | | _ - - | - M = Size | - of the | largest | - component| | - | | - | - |______________________________________________ R 0.50 R = Ratio of Number of Edges to Number of Vertices Batten describes the construction of the random graph sequence G_0, G_1, G_2,... as follows.

Development Studies Journal Ranking Table The following represents a first attempt at a “league table” for development studies journals. Basis - Selection was on the basis of development studies journals that appear in various other tables or lists. However, development economics journals (inc. Economic Development and Cultural Change, Journal of Development Economics, Review of Development Economics, and The Developing Economies) were not included. If you have suggestions for additions (or deletions), then let me know. CS Topic Generator Computer Science is facing a major roadblock to further research. The problem is most evident with students, but afflicts many researchers as well: people simply have a tough time inventing research topics that sound sufficiently profound and exciting. Many PhD students waste needless years simply coming up with a thesis topic. And researchers often resort to reading documents from government grant agencies so they will know what to work on for the next proposal! Good news for the CS community: the problem has at last been solved.
