Newman: Vertices and Edges in a Network


Vertex (pl. vertices): The fundamental unit of a network, also called a site (physics), a node (computer science), or an actor (sociology).

Edge: The line connecting two vertices. Also called a bond (physics), a link (computer science), or a tie (sociology).” (p. 5) #Newman #network #vertex #edge #bond #link
