## Abstract

We consider a model for complex networks that was introduced by Krioukov et al. (2010, Phys. Rev. E, 82, 036106), where the intrinsic hierarchies of a network are mapped into the hyperbolic plane. Krioukov et al. show that this model exhibits clustering and the distribution of its degrees has a power-law tail. We show that asymptotically this model locally behaves like the well-known Chung–Lu model in which two nodes are joined independently with probability proportional to the product of some pre-assigned weights whose distribution follows a power law. Using this, we further determine exactly the asymptotic distribution of the degree of an arbitrary vertex.
