Specifically, Graph Evolution: Densification and Shrinking Diameters by J. Leskovec, J. Kleinberg, C. Faloutsos. ACM Transactions on Knowledge Discovery from Data (TKDD), 1(1), 2007. and his thesis (with enough references) Dynamics of large networks by J. Leskovec. PhD Dissertation, Machine Learning Department, Carnegie Mellon University, Technical report CMU-ML-08-111, 2008. Evolution of networks can be nicely analysed from a graph generation pov, see this survey for a good overview: Graph Mining: Laws, Generators, and Algorithms. Deepayen Chakrabarti, Christos Faloutsos; Hope that helps.
