We consider the following classic statistical distributions Poisson distribution, Exponential distribution and Uniform distribution.
In this paper, we discuss one specific SN which has the feature of node growth time interval follows exponential distribution. As depicted in Fig.1(a), it shows the social construction for SN.

A large number of CT and SEM experiments show that the number of pores satisfies an approximate uniform distribution along the circumference, and the pore space and pore size are in normal distribution and exponential distribution [18-20].
Figure 3 plots the normalized betweenness centrality distribution and its probability density function of exponential distribution approximation with the same scenarios as node degree.
Moreover, we also assume that the jump size follows an Exponential distribution in order to make some comparisons and analyze the role of the jump size distribution.
A simple case is the double exponential jump diffusion process whose first-passage time problem has been solved by Kou and Wang (2003) [26] by means of the conditional memory less of exponential distribution. The property keeping the double exponential jump diffusion form unchanged under the measure transform will be proved below.
