...Recently a number of authors have had success with methods based on “edge betweenness,” which is the count of how many geodesic paths between vertices run along each edge in the network [171, 185, 197, 422]....

...The degree of a vertex in a network is the number of other vertices to which it is connected, and one finds that there are typically many vertices in a network with low degree and a small number with high degree, the precise distribution often following a power-law or exponential form [1, 5, 15]....
