Small-world networks are classes of networks that have both the small-world property and exhibit strong clustering. Two constructions of such networks are implemented in IONTW. Here we study, both theoretically and with simulation experiments, the structure of these networks and how it influences effectiveness of a certain vaccination strategy.

Level: Advanced undergraduate and graduate students of mathematics.

Requires: Module Clustering coefficients and Module Exploring distances with IONTW.
