N2 - As part of Watts and Strogatz's small-world model of complex networks, local information mechanisms such as landscape properties are used to approximate real-world conditions in social simulations.

Results from experimental simulations show that the percentage of weak individuals should be considered significant local information, but vertex degree influences and the distribution patterns of weak individuals should not.
