The relationship between giant component size and degree/hyperdegree. Nodes are removed from high degree/hyperdegree to low respectively. For degree and hyperdegree respectively, the relation curves between the proportion of removed nodes and that of the giant component show that a considerable number of authors contribute to the formation of giant component. The left-shifting trend of the relation curves in three time periods (1999–2003, 2004–2008 and 2009–2013) over time shows the increasing contributions of author activity and productivity to the formation of the giant component
