Abstract

We propose a new node centrality measure in networks, the lobby index, which is inspired by Hirsch's h-index. It is shown that in scale-free networks with exponent α the distribution of the l-index has power tail with exponent α (α + 1). Properties of the l-index and extensions are discussed.
