I’m working with a PPI network in cystoscape and have used NetworkAnalyzer for network parameters such as Node Degree Distribution, Shortest Path Distribution, Betweenness Centrality, etc.
When looking at the Node Degree Distribution; I can fit a line of power law and see, due to the negative slope, that my data fits the power law. However, I can’t for the life of me figure out how to work out the degree exponent.
I feel like I could be missing something very obvious. I can get the following information when fitting the power law; Power law of the form y=ax^b , where for my network a: 89.962 b:-0.855 correlation:0.734 R-squared: 0.754
Any help or advice provided would be extremely appreciated.
