End-to-end packet delivery in the Internet is achieved through a system of interconnections between the network domains of independent entities called autonomous systems (ASes). Inter-domain connections are the result of a complex, dynamic process of negotiated business relationships between pairs of ASes. We present an economically-principled generative model for autonomous system graph connectivity. While there is already a large literature devoted to understanding Internet connectivity at the AS level, many of these models are either static or based on generalized stochastics.
