Doreen butts in, an' crools me pitch once more.

In science:

Alternatively, the implementation could be done in a fully stochastic manner, where an extra initial step is to draw N colored degrees independently from pm , and a pool of edges from qab = hma i Tab hmb i / Pc hmc i, sub ject to matching counts of stubs and butts of each color.
Random Graphs with Hidden Color
The above analysis shows that DRG and IRG can be unified into a more general class of random graph models, defined in terms of a hidden coloring of stubs and butts, with specified distributions of colorextended vertex degrees as well of edge colorpairs.
