In order to further explore the mechanism responsible for weighted complex networks, we introduce a new model that incorporates the network topology and the weights' dynamical evolutions. Our model can capture the details of weight dynamics caused not only by the addition of a new node with new links and new links between old nodes, but also the deletion of old links. We calculate analytically the distributions of both degree and strength and found that all these distributions show scale-free behavior, as confirmed in many real networks. Thus our model characterizes the real weighted complex networks more precisely. © World Scientific Publishing Company.
