Creating random network structures is one of the essential requirements for realistic simulations of complex networks. Real networks exhibit a multi-level structure which does not lend itself to existing generative models. This study considers the problem of fusing two random networks towards bridging the multi-level network creation problem. Using...

In this study we look at a body of standards documents in RFCs(Request For Comments) of IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force). The cross references between these documents form a network. Approaches from social network analysis are deployed to assess centrality of artifacts in this network and identify cohesive subgroups and levels of cohesion. Ou...
