Abstract
We propose a simple random process generating various types of random graphs and the scale-free random graphs among others. The model is of a threshold nature and differs from the preferential attachment approach discussed in the literature before. The degree statistics of a random graph in our model is governed by the control parameter eta stirring the pure exponential statistics for the degree distribution (at eta = 0, when the threshold value is changed each time a new edge is added to the graph) to a power law (at eta = 1, when the threshold is frozen). The exponent gamma characterizing the power law can vary in the wide range gamma is an element of (1, infinity) and can be tuned in different values gamma(in) and gamma(out) for in-degrees and out-degrees probability distributions independently. For eta is an element of (0, 1), the decay rate is mixed. Taking different statistics for the threshold changes, one obtains dissimilar asymptotic profiles for the degree distribution having, in general, nothing to do with power laws at eta = 1, but still uniformly exponential at eta = 0.
