Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

We derive new, exact expressions for network centrality vectors associated with classical Watts-Strogatz style "ring plus shortcut" networks. We also derive easy-to-interpret approximations that are highly accurate in the large network limit. The analysis helps us to understand the role of the Katz parameter and the PageRank parameter, to compare linear system and eigenvalue based centrality measures, and to predict the behavior of centrality measures on more complicated networks.
