Attention to my artless strain.

In social contexts, information and diseases are actually suggested to propagate in a manner different from as we imagine by the analogy of regular graphs such as the Cayley trees and regular lattices.

Education, social status, and income are examples of variables that epidemiologists frequently consider as confounders even though their relationship with disease is seldom causal.

Unfortunately, since in practice random network models are often used to describe decentralized processes (e.g., growth of social or financial networks, spread of disease, etc.), such a comparison between unrelated edges can be a bit artificial in these circumstances.

SW) networks2 have been much studied as they furnish a simple way to attempt to describe complex topologies such as social and economic organizations, the speed of disease spread, connectivities of computers, just to cite a few of them1 .

The structure and function of complex networks
For instance, in the case of the internet, it means that computers can communicate; in the case of the web if means that one may reach most pages from most others by following hyperlinks; and in the case of social networks it conditions the ability of information and diseases to spread.
Impact of Random Failures and Attacks on Poisson and Power-Law Random Networks
Likewise, in social networks, people can die from a disease, or people deemed likely to propagate the disease can be vaccinated, which corresponds to node removals.
