The (asymptotic) degree distribution of the best known scale free network models are all similar and are independent of the seed graph used. Hence it has been tempting to assume that networks generated by these models are similar in general. In this thesis it is shown that several key topological features of such networks depend heavily on the specific model and seed graph used. Furthermore, it is shown that starting with right seed graph, the duplication model captures many topological features of publicly available PPI networks very well.
