We discuss merging-and-creation as a self-organizing process for scale-free topologies in networks. Three power-law classes characterized by the power-law exponents 23 , 2 and 25 are identified and the process is generalized to networks. In the network context the merging can be viewed as a consequence of optimization related to more efficient signaling.
