# Reply to 'Comment on 'Maximal planar networks with large clustering coefficient and power-law degree distribution''

## Abstract

We give a brief review on the analytic approaches for finding the degree distribution. The method used in the comment (master-equation) and the one in the original paper (rate-equation) [T. Zhou, G. Yan, and B. H. Wang, Phys. Rev. E 71, 046141 (2005)] are two mainstream methods. The former is more accurate, and the latter is more widely used since it can solve some complicated problems that cannot be easily solved by the former approach. The analytic forms of finding the degree distribution obtained by the above two methods have the same asymptotic behaviors.
