Many real networks in nature and society share two generic properties: they are scale-free and they display a high degree of clustering. We show that the scalefree nature and high clustering of real networks are the consequence of a hierarchical organization, implying that small groups of nodes form increasingly large groups in a hierarchical manner, while maintaining a scale-free topology. In hierarchical networks the clustering coefficient follows a strict scaling law, which can be used todoi:10.1007/978-3-540-44943-0_4 fatcat:ykxq4vnflzawlf7pq4jiq3kb5m
