Although a number of people have worked on this question, the answers have not, on the whole, been completely satisfactory.
A norm on homology of surfaces and counting simple geodesics
Note that the index m is not directly relevant for the computation of moments, because Ik, l = Pm Ik, l,m, but we have not been able to obtain a closed recursion without the index m.
Random incidence matrices: moments of the spectral density
This means that providers with a degree less than a given value k are those ones which have been added to the network after a corresponding time, and have not had time enough to develop a cluster of k users around them.

Natural proteins are on the borderline of what can actually be understood; we have not yet computed their folding properties, but this does not seem completely impossible, especially for the smallest ones.

Random Surfaces
We aim to show, nonetheless, that when we have deleted i vertices, the probability that the number of 2-edges over the pair {v(i + 1), w}, for any vertex w we have not yet looked at, is Poisson(λ2 (N, i)), independently for all such w .

Random Networks with Tunable Degree Distribution and Clustering
As before, let the reduction ri,j,i′, j ′ be extended to be defined on any element where the pairs (i, j ), (i′, j ′ ) have not been removed (i.e. anything that did not involve taking X ′′ i,j,i′, j ′ ) and to linear combinations of these.
