Figure featured in the Physical Review E January Kaleidoscope


An example of Hierarchical Preferential Attachment. Each radius represents a level of organization. The nodes are found at the outermost circle and a unique color (shades of blue, more than 50) specifies their identity.

A figure from our recent paper "Complex networks as an emerging property of hierarchical preferential attachment" has been selected to appear in the January Kaleidoscope of Physical Review E. Figures are selected on aesthetic merit.

Congratulations to our local artist, Edward Laurence!

For the record, the figure was produced with D3.js, a Java library for data visualization.
