Preferential Attachment - a demonstration of JUNG and MASON integration

By Maciek Latek 2007
[Requires JFreeChart and JUNG] contains a simple example of using MASON in combination with JUNG, a social networks toolkit. The example is a model of simple network dynamics inspired by Barabasi's preferential attachment theory.

To compile and run, you'll need to install both MASON and JUNG. If you'd like to try it out, a jar file that combines all dependencies can be downloaded from here.

The following questions are covered in this demonstration:

In addition to that, one way of using MASON's new interfaces to JFreeChart to plot different things (a histogram in this case) is shown. From within the Model tab following parameters of the simulations can be set: Other things, like exact layout algorithm used and maximal degree of nodes, are hard coded.
