Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Measurement studies on the Internet topology show that connectivities of nodes exhibit power-law attribute. Many modeling methods that re-produce the degree distribution have been proposed. However, it is apparent that only the degree distribution does not determine the structure of the Internet topology. In this paper, we propose a new modeling method for generating realistic ISP-level Internet topologies that obey the power-law degree distribution. Our method adds nodes one by one, and each node is connected to the optimal node in terms of minimizing the overall network costs. For the network cost, we incorporate not only geographical information into our method, but also incorporate the amount of link capacities that accommodates traffic. We show that our modeling method can generate ISP-level topologies having more similar topological characteristics, in terms of clustering coefficients, average shortest path length, and betweenness centrality, when comparing with existing modeling methods.
