The Economics of Small Worlds
Matthew Jackson and
Journal of the European Economic Association, 2005, vol. 3, issue 2-3, 617-627
We examine a simple economic model of network formation where agents benefit from indirect relationships. We show that small-world features-short path lengths between nodes together with highly clustered link structures-necessarily emerge for a wide set of parameters.
