Goldbug Variations

Empirical studies (e.g., [9, 14]) suggest that both the in-degree and out-degree, number of links pointing to a page and the number of outbound links of a page, respectively, follow a power-law distribution, a characteristic often referred to as the scale-free property.
Directed random graphs with given degree distributions
The idea is basically the same, given a bi-degree-sequence (m, d), to each node vi assign mi inbound half-edges and di outbound half-edges; then, proceed to match inbound half-edges to outbound half-edges to form directed edges.
Directed random graphs with given degree distributions
Note that different permutations can actually lead to the same graph, for example, if we switch the position of two outbound half-edges of the same node, so not all multigraphs have the same probability.
Directed random graphs with given degree distributions
