Title

An Evaluation of Theoretical Network Models

Abstract

Theoretical models of network growth are designed to produce particular characteristics of real world networks.  Three common models are Erdos-Renyi graphs, preferential attachment graphs, and random geometric graphs. Herein we evaluate the efficacy of these models at simulating real world networks. Specifically, we investigate the extent to which these standard network models produce equitable partitions with the same statistics as those observed in real-world networks.
