Scholarpedia Article: "Small-World Network"

My Scholarpedia article on small-world networks is now officially published.

Here is the small summary from the beginning of the article: "A small-world network refers to an ensemble of networks in which the mean geodesic (i.e., shortest-path) distance between nodes increases sufficiently slowly as a function of the number of nodes in the network. The term is often applied to a single network in such a family, and the term "small-world network" is also used frequently to refer specifically to a Watts-Strogatz toy network."
