Empirical Analysis on Network Structure of the Inter-Regional Oil Railway Transportation

Conference paper

Abstract

By applying the complex network method to defining the inter-regional oil railway transportation network, the paper suggests the evaluation indexes of inter-regional oil railway transportation network. According to the relevant data, the paper makes empirical analysis on the structure of inter-regional oil railway transportation network in China. The research shows that Chinese inter-regional oil railway transportation network mainly aggregates in north and southwest China, which has characteristics of complex networks, such as small world, scale-free, group structure, etc.
