Diagram: Preferential Attachment

Preferential Attachment

Think of preferential attachment as an attribute of when 'the rich get richer' within a networked system. This occurs when nodes that have a lot of links tend to attract more links as other nodes enter the system resulting in super-nodes. Network Topology

Preferential Attachment is the process whereby, colloquially, 'the rich get richer'. In a networked system, nodes that have a lot of links tend to attract more links as other nodes enter the system. As a result, 'super nodes' with a higher Fitness appear to hold a disproportionate number of links. The resulting Networks tend to follow a 'POWER-LAW DISTRIBUTION'.
