Scale-free network theory in studying the structure of the road network in Poland

This paper discusses the issue of statistical analysis of traffic flow in different regions of Poland. Such analysis allows the authors to identify “valuable (sensitive) areas” whose damage or blockage may provoke considerable disturbances or even a stoppage of traffic flow in the examined road network. The results of the studies indicate that the road network in Poland has the properties of a scale-free network. The distribution of the examined variables does not have a normal character, whereas the relationship between the number of nodes and the number of connections is a power-law feature.
