In many empirical networks, knn (k) has the form knn (k) = A + Bkβ , with A, B > 0 (Boccaletti et al., 2006; Pastor-Satorras et al., 2001) – the mixing being assortative if β is positive, and disassortative when negative.

It is worth mentioning that Pastor-Satorras et al. originally suggested using this exponent as a way of quantifying correlations (Pastor-Satorras et al., 2001), since this seems to be the most relevant magnitude.

This method is like the hidden variable technique (Bogu˜n´a and Pastor-Satorras, 2003) in that edges are placed with a predefined probability (which is why the resulting ensemble is canonical).
