Abstract
For the last decades, the Zipf distribution has been considered a good candidate to fit the degree sequence of a real network. This is reasonable, because in a huge amount of networks a few number of nodes are highly connected, while a large number of them are slightly connected. Nevertheless, in a recent work of A. Briodo and A. Clauset it is proved, by means of analyzing approximately 1000 degree sequences, that the fits obtained with the Power-Law (PL) distribution are not as accurate as it w...
