The network of commuters in London.
3781 - 3788.
We have studied the directed and weighted network in which the wards of London are vertices and two vertices are connected whenever there is at least one person commuting to work from one ward to another. Remarkably the in-strength and in-degree distribution tail is a power law with exponent around -2, while the out-strength and out-degree distribution tail is exponential. We propose a simple square lattice model to explain the observed empirical behaviour. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
