anyone have further insight on predicting the distribution or nature
of phase transitions in arbitrary graphs?  i haven't turned up any
good papers, but i haven't looked that hard yet either.

in particular i'm interested in the node degree distribution and what
effect this has.  (it seems that some number of nodes of sufficient
degree are needed to achieve state transition in any reasonable sized
graph; sparse and randomly connected nodes are much less likely to
exhibit this behavior.  i'd like to find a formal study of this
