The total number of participations.

The probability distribution of the total number of participations obtained from the empirical data (red circles), simulations (blue circles) and numerical iterative algorithm (green triangles). The full line is the best fit to truncated power law, xα eBx, while the dashed and dash-dot line denote the best fit to power-law distribution, xγ and exponential distribution, eλx, respectively.
