This chapter considers networks with an arbitrary degree distribution, in which the degrees of nodes are uncorrelated, including the degrees of the nearest-neighbour nodes. The two kinds of these networks are considered in detail. The first is the configuration model (a random graph with a given degree sequence) and the second is the static model (a random graph with a given sequence of desired degrees). The basic properties of these locally tree-like networks are discussed. The chapter also considers bipartite uncorrelated networks.

Keywords: configuration model; static model; hidden variables; locally tree-like structure
