Description:  The top graph shows the relationships among components in a digital circuit. The bottom graph shows the same in a television circuit. The dots correspond to components, and the lines wiring. Concentric rings indicate a hierarchy due to the nested, modular structure of the circuits. The short lines in both graphs show the shortcuts typical of a small-world network.
