    We present a new kind of digraphs, called cyclic Kautz digraphs CK(d, ɭ), which are subdigraphs of the well-known Kautz digraphs K(d,ɭ). The latter have the smallest diameter among all digraphs with their number of ...
  • A note on a new general family of deterministic hierarchical networks 

    Dalfó, Cristina; Fiol, Miguel Angel (World Scientific Publishing, 2019)
    It is known that many networks modeling real-life complex systems are small-word (large local clustering and small diameter) and scale-free (power law of the degree distribution), and very often they are also hierarchical. ...
  • Trajectory analysis in community ecology
