Two-level relationships and Scale-Free Networks


Through the distinction between ``real'' and ``virtual'' links between the nodes of a graph, we develop a set of simple rules leading to scale-free networks with a tunable degree distribution exponent. Albeit sharing some similarities with preferential attachment, our procedure is both faster than a na\"ive implementation of the Barab\'asi and Albert model and exhibits different clustering properties. The model is thoroughly studied numerically and suggests that reducing the set of partners a node can connect to is important in seizing the diversity of scale-free structures
