Scale free network
A specific kind of network in which the distribution of connectivity is uneven. In scale-free networks, some nodes act as "very connected" hubs using a power-law distribution. This dramatically influences the way the network operates, including how it responds to catastrophic events. The Internet, World Wide Web and many other large-scale networks have been shown to be scale-free networks.
