While a small network can be visualized directly by its graph (N , g ),
larger networks can be more diﬃcult to envision and describe.
Therefore, we deﬁne a set of summary statistics or quantitative
p erformance measures to describe and compare networks (focus on
undirected graphs):
Diameter and average path length
Clustering
Centrality
Degree distributions A Simple Random Graph Model—Erd¨sRenyi model
