Note(s): Analysis of the timing of the arrival of email viruses at different computers provides a way of probing the structural and dynamical properties of the Internet. The authors found that the intervals t between the arrival of four different strains of email viruses have a power law distribution proportional to t2d, where 1.5This manuscript is a version of an article published in Physical Review E v. 68, 017101 (2003) http://link.aps.org/doi/10.1103/PhysRevE.68.017101
