Abstract: The introduction provides an overview on complex networks, trying to investigate what apparently different kinds of networks have in common. Some statistical properties are illustrated and a simulation tool for the analysis of complex networks is presented. A weighted directed random graph is used as network model. The graph contains a fixed number N of nodes and a variable number of edges: in particular, each edge is present with probability p. Some statistical properties (such as strong connection, global and local efficiency, cost, etc) are computed and their reliance on probability p is studied. Some probability distributions (such as shortest path, edge/node load) are also drawn and, by using the method of stages, the best fitting curves are computed. The way as parameters characterizing such curves change when p varies is also investigated. The general structure of the proposed fitting technique allows to model several aspects of complex networks and makes possible its use in man...
