***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi everybody, The avg. geodesic distance in a (connected) random network is approximated by ln(n)/ln(k), where n=number_of_nodes , and k=avg._ties_per_node. However, if I create a random network with parameters n and k in Pajek and calcluate its avg. geodesic distance, I get sizeably different results (regardless of how large I set n). Any idea what I could be doing wrong? Thanks, Gianluca PS: To calculate the avg. geodesic distance I've been using Ucinet/network/cohesion/distance -->adjacency ____________________________________________________________ Libero ADSL: 3 mesi gratis e navighi a 1.2 Mega, senza costi di attivazione.
