  1. Comparison for several parameters of the social network-based model, the normal distribution-based model, and the exponential distribution-based model. The parameters we are showing are: the average contact number, the connection degree, the average of the squared values of the number of contacts, the mean value at the peak of the probability distribution, and the standard deviation.
