From Pareto Inter-Contact Times to Residuals

Interactions between mobile users are the building blocks of a variety of emerging communication paradigms, among which opportunistic networking is one of the most promising. In opportunistic networks, the information propagates through pair-wise contacts between users, and hence the intercontact time, i.e., the time between two consecutive interactions between a pair of users, plays a key role in the latency of information propagation. Given that new message availability and actual communication are typically asynchronous, analytical models often rely on the concept of residual inter-contact time, i.e, the time left before the next communication opportunity, starting from a random point in time.
