Table 3 ERS vs. CRS model, simulated by MiStImm 500–500 times as the mean waiting time between two divisions of a pathogen is increasing (from 40 to 80) and the initial number of pathogens is fixed (350)

From: MiStImm: an agent-based simulation tool to study the self-nonself discrimination of the adaptive immune response

  1. The table shows how the performance of ERS and CRS model is changing when we increase the mean waiting time between two divisions of a pathogen. Column labels are the same as in Table 2 but the positions of the columns “f cells” and “div time” are switched. In every cases ERS performed significantly better than CRS
