Dear all,
we're conducting a research on BitTorrent.

Does anyone know a research paper or real experiments that could answer 
to the following questions:
- what is the distribution of requests for a distinct piece as seen from 
the seed (or any other leecher having a copy of that piece) point of 
view? Would it be reasonable to assume it to be exponentially 
distributed over time?

Thanks for your comments or pointers!
