Title: Dynamic random networks 

Abstract: We consider a random network in which
nodes, as well as edges, are born and die.  The node population is Markovian and so is
the edge-network (given the node population).  Each node is equipped with a random
social index affecting the rate of creating neighbours.  We derive the asymptotic
population size, age-distribution and degree-distribution for the network, give some
numerical illustrations, and discuss possible extensions of the model.  (Joint work with
Mathias Lindholm)
