Figure 3

Perturbations required for high accuracy The minimum number of perturbations (P*) required to reach the high accuracy criterion (average sensitivity = 0.95) for different values of the network size N. Each point represents the average value for 250 random networks inferred. This is equivalent to finding the value of P for which sensitivity = 0.95 on the one-input curve of figure 1(a) for different values of N (figure 1(a) shows N = 50). A linear fit is also shown.
