Maier.</p>\n\n<p>## Prerequisites</p>\n\n<p>The analysis code was used and tested for Python 3.8 on CentOS, Ubuntu, and MacOS.<br>\nIn order to run code in this collection, first install the requirements:</p>\n\n<p>```bash<br>\npip install -r requirements.txt<br>\n```</p>\n\n<p>Models are implemented using [epipack]( To run<br>\nlarge-scale simulations, we use [qsuite](, a CLI<br>\nto facilitate simulations on HPC clusters. `qsuite` will be installed when<br>\ndependencies are installed from `requirements.txt`.</p>\n\n<p>## Main model</p>\n\n<p>The main model, including an example configuration,<br>\ncan be found in directory `main_model/`.<br>\nTo run the simulation, do</p>\n\n<p>```bash<br>\ncd main_model/<br>\nqsuite local<br>\n```</p>\n\n<p>## Analyses&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>Almost all simulations and analyses performed in the paper<br>\ncan be found in `analysis_collection/tracing_sim/`.</p>\n\n<p>All extracted (summarized) data can be found in<br>\n`analysis_collection/data_new.json`.</p>\n\n<p>Code to produce the figures in the main text from distilled analysis<br>\nresults and analyses for the locally clustered network with<br>\nexponential degree distribution can be found in<br>\n`figures_main_text_and_new_network_model/`.</p>\n\n<p>Code for plots in the SI can be found in<br>\n`analysis_collection/` except for Fig. S7-S8-- those can<br>\nbe found in the respective directories&nbsp;<br>\n`analysis_collection/tracing_sim/results_deleting_edges_*`<br>\nand `analysis_collection/tracing_sim/results_toy_model/`.</p>\n\n<p>In order to replicate the simulations, change to the directory containing the<br>\nrespective analysis and run `qsuite local`, e.g.&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>```bash<br>\ncd analysis_collection/tracing_sim/results_exponential_DF_NMEAS_100_ONLYSAVETIME_False/<br>\nqsuite local<br>\n```</p>\n\n<p>An illustration to justify the choice of `beta = 10^(-6)` as the long range<br>\nredistribution parameter beta can be found by running<br>\n`analysis_collection/`.<br>\n&nbsp;</p>",
