Hi Valdis,

The claims of "scale-free" networks everywhere have been disputed and
disproved for a long time. For example, Jamie Jones and I have a series
of papers starting in 2003 showing that many "discovered" scale-free
networks really are not. See

Jones and Handcock 2003 https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov_pubmed_12789329&d=DwIDaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=ShIH0JpKKwJMXMk6fmSrMwSN8smX9dd7etwcyRwMCk8&s=xvVgATmNNtNrRHDoHhoLY42mkjYUk1nlNXp3HF0zU0w&e=

Handcock and Jones 2003 https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov_pubmed_15136015&d=DwIDaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=ShIH0JpKKwJMXMk6fmSrMwSN8smX9dd7etwcyRwMCk8&s=P6RKgNcnbqXFm8MfUYJOUpjddEyEXkf8xfclL78RqLs&e=

and the papers that came after. We developed valid statistical methods
to test for scale-free properties from network data that have been
available as an R package
(degreenet)(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__cran.r-2Dproject.org_web_packages_degreenet&d=DwIDaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=ShIH0JpKKwJMXMk6fmSrMwSN8smX9dd7etwcyRwMCk8&s=M4tkhXn7EklazXDiQz26hexYp6LqtTfPthdSpykJGl0&e=) for over
a decade. Most of our applications were to human sexual networks because
the implications for public-health are more direct there, but the
methods and criticisms can be applied for all networks.

Cheers,

Mark
