Abstract
We study an inhomogeneous random connection model in the connectivity regime. The vertex set of the graph is a homogeneous Poisson point process Ps of intensity s > 0 on the unit cube (Formula Presented). Each vertex is endowed with an independent random weight distributed as W, where (Formula Presented). Given the vertex set and the weights an edge exists between x; y 2 Ps with probability (Formula Presented); independent of everything else, where Î·; Î± > 0, d(Â·; Â·) is the toroidal metric on S and r > 0 is a scaling parameter. We derive conditions on Î±; Î² such that under the scaling (Formula Presented), the number of vertices of degree k converges in total variation distance to a Poisson random variable with mean eÎ¾ as s â�� 1, where c0 is an explicitly specified constant that depends on Î±; Î²; d and Î· but not on k. In particular, for k = 0 we obtain the regime in which the number of isolated nodes stabilizes, a precursor to establishing a threshold for connectivity. We also derive a sufficient condition for the graph to be connected with high probability for large s. The Poisson approximation result is derived using the Steinâ��s method.
