In science:
If, using left equivalence, we eliminate a monomial with even degree in one component, then we obtain a monomial of higher degree in another component, so we have to eliminate monomials of odd degree.
Simple singularities of multigerms of curves
For a start, each vertex in an directed network has two degrees, an in-degree, which is the number of edges that point into the vertex, and an out-degree, which is the number pointing out.
Random graphs as models of networks
In fact, to be completely general, we must allow for a joint degree distribution of inand out-degree: we deﬁne pj k to be the probability that a randomly chosen vertex simultaneously has in-degree j and out-degree k .
Random graphs as models of networks
There, a random graph ensemble based on an arbitrary asymptotic degree distribution pm is deﬁned for a ﬁnite order N by randomly selecting a member from the set of graphs with a given degree sequence, such that the number of vertices with degree m is approximately N pm .
A General Formalism for Inhomogeneous Random Graphs
Note that the total degree of a vertex is simply the sum of its colored degree components; the usual degree distribution is thus also ﬁxed, and amounts to pm = Pm δ(m, Pa ma )pm .
